BAHAHAHAHAHA, OMFG, I LOVE YOUR DONKEY. I was laughing SO hard, he reminds me of my best friend's Miniature gelding, he's the only gelding in a herd of mares and he completely rules the roost - he chases newcomers, and if anyone tries to sass him, he just kicks them in the knees and they have NO idea how to react!
Your new girl is absolutely GORGOEUS, kudos to you it would have been a crying **** shame for something that big and beautiful to go to slaughter!
Murray thinks he is a stallion! Lol you should see my mustang mare when she goes to roll. She looks around for him to make sure he is on the other side of the pasture because is she roll he will be on her like white on rice! The funny part is that she is the alpha in the herd. He gives her so much crap I love it! Sometimes I will look at the window and he will be on his back legs holding onto her crest and she is trying to shake him off. It is sooooooooo funny! Thanks for the complement! That is exactly what I thought when my friend sent me the pic of her. I didn't even meet her until she got off the trailer at my house. Let me just say that I was VERY pleasantly surprised especially when I saw her move:) My boyfriend thinks she is ugly:(
I am not a huge standardbred lover, I dislike the large heads and TB bodies. But this one is appears to have alot of potential and she's cute.
Love the mini donkey, I'm sure the new horse is thinking "now what does this annoying lil sh** want?"
I didn't really know much about Standardbred until my friend took me to the stables at the track. My heart sank to my stomach to see the condition of some of the horses and then to find out how many go to slaughter after their career. As much as I am not a big fan of their looks they need a loving home too. I was VERY VERY surprised to see how thick and large she is. She was retired from racing because she was too big which I think is awesome. I don't think she looks like the typical Standardbred personally. She makes my 15.1 blm mustang look like a pony:)
Funny how you start a thread about your new horse, which we all like - and it ends up about your donkey.
Pass him over here a while, be a nice person! :)
LOL! I know, right!? Murray has a way of stealing the spot light. Everyone that meets him says he reminds them of that movie Shrek because he has such a big personality. I love that little donk! If you lived near me I'd let him come sleep over for a night at your place:)
I love the mares response to the donk..."Ill kick you...no really...i'll do it...listen little man...don't make me do it...c'mon....Im going to do it!!!!" But she didn't!
She sure is a stunning beauty. You will really love a standardbred. The ones I have known have been very sweet and very willing.
That is what I've heard about Standardbreds. I think she has a lot of potential and I plan on her becoming a well rounded horse like my mustang. Lol I have a feeling after 60 days under the saddle she probably wont give me as much sass as my mustang haha.
You're right. She really doesn't look like a standardbred. If you had asked me her breed, I probably wouldn't of known. She's very nice ^_^
Haha, and I sure wish our donkeys were as sweet! Pedro is just big loudmouth who likes to think he's the lead stallion (and he was until Noah, our 17.2hh hunter came into the herd xD), that all of the girls love him, and that he's about 18hh and as big as a shire. James sounds a bit more like Murray in that he likes to sleep with his head in our laps, but he doesnt really seem to enjoy being petted or anything x]
What's the mare's name? Poor girls been thorugh a lot! And I kinda feel bad for that stud! O.o he was just doing his job!
