Tragedy turned to triumph Saturday evening for a young boy from Dewey and his new horse. Jared and his colt, named "Dude" won several awards Saturday at the Washington County Fair.

You may remember someone shot and killed Jared's first horse, "Scamper." Many generous KOTV viewers called and offered Jared a new horse, he picked one out last month. Since then, he's been working with "Dude" and now, it's all paid off.

Jared won first place in the yearling quarter horse category, second in grand reserve quarter horse, and fourth in showmanship. Jared hasn't forgotten "Scamper" though; he took a poster board full of pictures with him to the competition.
