Squirt is another naughty miniature horse on the farm. He isn’t even mine – technically he belongs to Laura next door. (Not that that changes the situation, but I just wanted to clear that up from the start — because really ??– who in their right mind has three miniature horses?)
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking….”but he’s so cute”. Well guess what? He’s lucky he is.
He is the only horse trained to do anything around here but you’ll rarely catch him.
If you have a zoom lens, you can get some good pictures.
If not, this is what he will look like. Short. And far away.
Could be because he gets sick of hauling our butts up and down the driveway using his little cart. He has been a “project animal”, so who knows, maybe this summer I will have the time to persuade him to cooperate. Bahahahahahahahaha!!!!!
So how did we end up with this little guy? Laura waited 20 years to go to the world’s largest draft horse auction in Waverly Iowa. (Where Disney World and such go to buy the beautiful, majestic teams you see at their parks.) And THIS is what she came home with!!
PS: We now believe the auction term “Amish-Broke” means “Hard to Catch”.
PPPS: UPDATE! A video of him eating watermelon…
