People of Atwater Village: Leonardo Salbio
Mi nombre es Leonardo Salbio. Llevo como 32 años trabajando con caballos. Aqui, tengo trabajando unos 5 años. Mi rutina en la mañana es llegar a las 4:30 a.m. y aventarlos a unos corrales que se llaman sand pens. Y cuando ya los tengo allá los traigo para atrás, les doy una peinada, cuando los tengo todos adentro de sus establos, les lavo sus cubetas de agua, les pongo su agua limpia y su comida.
Yo soy el 45 de los nietos en mi generación y yo soy el único que me gustan los caballos. Y me gusta más la conexión con ellos. Llego yo en las mañanas y todos me conocen porque saben que yo les doy la comida y les doy su agua. Empiezan a relinchar, hablarme, yo les chiflo, les hablo y ellos están contentos.
My name is Leonardo Salbio. I've been working with horses for about 32 years. I've been working here for 5 years. My morning routine is to arrive at 4:30 a.m., and toss them in a corral we call the sand pen. Once I've got them over there I bring them back and I brush them, and when I have them all back in their stables I wash out their buckets, I give them clean water and food.
I'm the 45th grandchild of my generation and I'm the only one that likes horses. What I like most is the connection I have with them. I arrive in the morning and they all know me because they know that I'm the one that feeds them and gives them water. They start neighing and talking to me and I whistle at them, talk to them and they're happy.
