Scout Pout

Here is the problem. I can get no Fame.

When the other horses go out in public, they get lots of Fame.  In magazines.  On television.  In newspapers.

No matter how hard I try, no Fame for Scout.  See the recent newspaper I am reading.  Therapy horses Aladdin and Sweetheart are on the front page.  Scout, oh look, way back on page 5.

Therapy horse Circus gets lots of Fame. He worked with children after the hurricanes.  Fame.  Scout worked with children after the hurricanes. No Fame.  Circus works in schools and libraries.  Fame.  Scout works in schools and libraries. No Fame.

And Circus doesn’t even care about Fame. He just cares about snacks and taking a nap.

My sister Magic gets so much Fame.  Sisters should share but she doesn’t share Fame with Scout.  Magic was on television this week. She was in a newspaper and two magazines and will be in another book.  She even got to be a cartoon.

Scout would like to be a cartoon.

Look for Scout in the current issue of Simply Pets magazine.  Not on the first page of the story about Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses. That would be therapy horse Angel.  Not on the second page of the story.  Since Magic had three photos on that page, there must not have been enough room for Scout.  There was room for Sparkle and Anthem.

Oh wait, there is Scout. On the bottom of the last page of the article.

Maybe Fame for Scout is coming.

I will let you know.

For now, Scout Out.

    Dear Scout:
    Sweet, mischievous Scout! I adore you, you little rascal! You make me laugh, smile with joy, and weep with pride as you go forth in the world! You should truly not be jealous of the fame of your siblings and the other horses in the “herd”. You are the youngster, the doer, not the follower and have your own brand of fame by the thousands of eager GCMTH fans who look forward to a picture, an adventure or video of your travels! You have your own Fan Club, your best friends–the big dude Cash, Guardenia and Vigil who look after you adoringly too. Plus you had the gentle hand and loving care of Jorge, the Big Guy, who obviously adored you from the beginning! What is it about you that endears you to us just by that cheeky look, and gorgeous eyes with movie star eyelashes?? Well, I was lost when I first saw you and as you grow up to be a big lad, the ladies are going to keep you on their mind too! 2018 Will be your year…but in the meantime, chill out and keep all things in perspective! Sometimes, the quiet ones manage to be the star anyway! Love you, Scout!!! I am out!

    You poor baby, no Fame for Scout. You have fame on Facebook. There are many followers on Facebook that love you and have been there since you were born. One day soon you will make the front page and everyone will know your name. Love you to pieces and all the human and animals at GCMTH. <3

    Scout, that simply isn’t true. You, dear Scout, were the one that started my following of Gentle Carousal. You rock! You’re one of a kind and loved ❣️
