“I have spent my childhood in the city, but I didn’t like it there and I couldn’t work so I went back to our village, and as everyone else there I became a shepherd. After a while, I built a stable and had several horses because I was fascinated with them, I also have several deer. I also have land for vegetables as well. I use four of my horses for racing, and one of them took first place in Jizira region. That horse was beautiful, and also powerful so I named it Haloy Felbaz (Tricky Eagle). Unfortunately, it passed away due to illness and that really upset me. I have now bought a new horse and have named it Gardalul (Storm), and is currently participating in races. I love and care for my horses as they are my own kids”.
