Beasts of burden...

Here's a picture of two of the horses my girls and I fed carrots to yesterday. This picture is deceiving as the white horse here is absolutely massive...I know it isn't saying much, but he is taller than me...now...you gotta understand that I AM verticaly challenged to begin with. He was the first one that approached us out of the 7 of them in the paddock. He is like THE BOSS horse, well, that's what my girls named him anyhow. He came up, we offered him our closed hand and a carrot, glad to say he ate the carrot not our hand, LOL. I taught my girls how to approach these lovely animals. They did not want to leave. Tomorrow we go there with a BIG bag of carrots.
I used to have a horse when I was younger, called Mabel, I didnt name her, she was an old mare when my dad got her for me. I would love another horse but I just know the expenses of having one these days.


I just had to post this here picture...these felines look soooooo coool!!! Must have drugged the pussies up or somethin' to get them to lay like this. LOL!!!

Cheers Cazzie!!!

WooHoo! My teaching buddy Mabel is named for a horse! She'll be so proud!

That's a nice cat photo. I think Mr. K's wallet would be proud to have it.

Why yes I reckon he'd just fall in love with these felines 4 sure, pmsl. Tell your teaching buddy that Mabel was one fine old mare, and I truly mean that in the nicest possible way, she was absolutely bombproof around people. :)

How many hands do you think?

Hi Cazzie,
It would be nice to have a real horse, rather than something with horsepower. But trying to get a horse to stay in the parking bay at work is hell. I guess I will just have to stick to the two wheels for now.

My horse was only 12 hands, the white horse was approx 17hh minumum. Today, Friday, we have just come back from feeding horses again, my girls are getting used to handling them which I am wrapt to see.

My grandfather was a harness racer and owned a stable when I was a kid and I remember going there a LOT. I love horses too.
Oh and the kitty-pic, LOL!!!!

12 Hands????

Crikey, any shorter and it would be a Shetland.

The good things about horses is that, unlike bicycles and motorbikes, there is two senient beings trying not to kill themselves.
