LOS ANGELES - Two of America's favorite young female singers have just bought one of America's favorite male singers a very special birthday gift.
Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato went on eBay and purchased a Shetland pony to give to their fellow singer and cherished friend Justin Bieber for his 17th birthday on Tuesday, March 1, 2011.
Gomez and Lovato had heard that Bieber recently spent a couple of days down in Texas at Robert Pattinson's ranch and that he had a great time.
At first Gomez and Lovato were going to buy Justin a Harley Davidson motorcycle, but then they heard from Kim Kardashian that he already has one.
So the singing duo decided that they would get him his very own horse; a big quarter horse.
But after speaking over the phone with noted horse expert, Chauncey "Branding Iron" Chillworthy, owner of The Branding Iron Horses-To-Go Stable in Amarillo, they changed their mind.
Chillworthy informed the two young ladies that for someone of Justin's height and weight it would be much better to get him started off on what is referred to as a 'starter horse' such as a Shetland pony which is much smaller than your average horse like a quarter horse, a thoroughbred, a Clydesdale, or a plow horse.
Mr. Chillworthy, who owns a 13,000 acre horse ranch in the Texas panhandle, expressed that it's been his experience that by putting a young man who is short on a smaller horse rather than putting him up on a large horse the possibilities of him getting bucked off and injured are reduced by 70 to 80 percent.
Selena and Demi readily agreed. They thanked Mr. Chillworthy for his expert advice and went on eBay and purchased a Shetland pony for Justin Bieber's 17 birthday.
Gomez and Lovato wanted to buy a Shetland pony from Mr. Chillworthy but they were told that he does not carry that particular line of horse since they have a tendency of running away after the first time they get kicked by a quarter horse.
Justin's new birthday present cost $927, and is named "Little Fella."
