I know I should be politically correct and I have been trying very hard this spring to tone down news about horse breeding, cute foals and anything that would encourage people to breed horses that they can’t guarantee will have a safe and bankrolled home. For life.
And that’s a tough thing to guarantee. We all read Black Beauty, didn’t we? He wasn’t supposed to end up where he did. But he did. Maybe we should encourage a nationwide re-reading of that book to encourage equine adoption.
I’ve just been trying to do my bit for the unwanted horse situation, Fugly Horse Nation, don’t-breed-while-so-many-in-need, etc.
And I think I found one that’s safe to show on the blog, just for fun.
Meet Cooper, the first foal born at the fabulous new farm built for the Budweiser Clydesdales outside St. Louis, Missouri. Is he cute enough for you? I fully expect to see him on a commercial on the 2010 Super Bowl.
Click here to read an article about the new farm and lots more about Cooper. This photo originally came from the St. Louis Dispatch and also appeared in the Charleston, West Virginia Gazette-Mail, where it was brought to my attention.
