Our 'Horse of the Month' for July is a 3 year old Arabian / quarter horse cross that's truly precious.

Meet 'Precious' - a young woman who's waiting for an adoptive home.

"She's three years old."  Notes Dawn Keen of the Klamath Animal Shelter's Large Animal Division.  "She's the kind of horse, no matter what you're doing, she's up with you.  She wants to know, very curious."

Keen adds that Precious came in with a herd of 19 other horses about a year and a half ago...

"She was a little thin, wasn't to the point of being starved - and then we've had her ever since.  She's just a little ball of fire."

If 'Precious' was a hollywood actress, she might be Lucille Ball...

"Kinda quirky, I'd call her..."  Says Keen.  "Because she wants to do everything.  She'll try anything, she'll do anything for you."

You can meet Precious at the large animal shelter on Miller Island Road.

About the Author

Lyle Ahrens

KOTI-TV NBC2 reporter Lyle Ahrens moved from Nebraska to Klamath Falls in the late 1970's.  He instantly fell in love with the mountains, the trees and the rivers, and never once regretted the move.

Lyle's job history is quite colorful.  He’s managed a pizza parlor; he’s been a bartender, and a “kiwifruit grader” at an organic orchard in New Zealand.  A Klamath Falls radio station hired Lyle in the mid 90's as a news writer and commercial producer.  In 2004, Lyle joined the KOTI/KOBI news operation.

Lyle notes with pride that he has a big responsibility presenting the Klamath Basin to a wide and varied audience.  "The on-going water crisis has underscored the fact that the people and the issues in the Klamath Basin are every bit as diverse as the terrain.  Winning and keeping the trust of the viewers, as well as the newsmakers, is something I strive for with each story".

When he's not busy reporting the news, Lyle enjoys astronomy, playing guitar, fixing old radios and listening to anything by Sheryl Crow.
