Meet Playboy



Meet Playboy.

Isn't he gorgeous!
He came to stay on our farm
last Thursday night.

I wish I could say he was ours
but he is not...he belongs to a
young woman who is a friend of ours.
 



Playboy had been staying
with a family where unfortunately
there was a sudden divorce
and our young friend found 
herself without a place
for her horse.

So for a time this beautiful
boy will stay with us.

He is such a sweet horse
HUGE at 16 hh
and is blind in one eye.

But he 

BARREL RACES!

 

The girls think he's handsome.
 



So do I!

Bee-uteeful & oh so handsome... look at that shine! WoW!

The notice that I was at my limit of space on my blog was what started this whole mess the other day for me & one of the other girls said that she read on blogger that if you join Google+ that there's no limit of space... I joined after reading that & I was able to upload & post the pic of my nephew shortly after & haven't gotten anymore notices of no space since... altho, I did delete 2 years worth of pics & posts before reading that, too... so I just wanted to let you know about the Google+ solution (if it IS indeed a solution) before you resorted to deleting pics like I did.

Maura, He is beautiful! Even though I haven't been around horses since my girls rode in elementary school & high school, Playboy makes me miss being around horses. Enjoy whatever time you have him at your place.
Have a wonderful day!

Playboy is beautiful, those eyes certainly tell a story. He looks very loved and well cared for - and that makes my heart sing.

How can you not fall in love? Maybe he will be able to stay with you for a very long time.

Hugs ♥

Maura, Playboy is so beautiful!! You would never know that he is blind and I'm amazed he can barrel race still! I used to barrel race when I was younger-what fun! Enjoy that handsome Dude while you can!!

Karen said...

Such a beautiful horse, and you are so kind to let him stay. Horses are such noble creatures. xx

He is a beaut and must be quite nervy to barrel race with vision in only one eye. It's nice of you to take him in for awhile.

He is beautiful. Lucky you to have him staying at your place for a while. His coloring is so pretty. I bet he will like his new diggs while he is there.

Playboy is indeed one handsome fella! So glad that you could provide a place for him to stay until your friend finds other lodging for him. It looks like you're so smitten with him so I know he will be well taken care of while he's there with you. :)

Hi Maura, Playboy is a handsome fellow and would fit in with Fergie, Cleo, and Sister. They are at my grandsons and being shown quite often. We watch as much as possible. Is she racing him now? Have a wonderful week. Your Missouri Friend.

I love MY horse but can easily fall in love with (yours) too.
Playboy is a handsome horse
How sad it is that he is blind in one eye, but there again life is full of surprises and once he is comfortable in his new environment there will be no problems for him.
If suitable to all, I hope he'll stay for a long time with you
thanks for sharing these lovely pictures
