Name This Horse!

This'll probably be the easiest critter guessing game I've ever put up. Once you see the size of this beastie I'm *sure* everyone will know it!

One of these horses easily pulls the tram loaded with people. Impressive!

And just so there's no mistaking the size...

Please don't think these horses are mistreated in any way. There's a total of ten of them and they only "work" 2 or 3 days a week for about 3 hours each day. The rest of the time they hang out on a 100 acre spread nearby and start and finish their "working" day by hanging out on the beach and prancing in the surf.

"Work" involves leaning forward ever so slightly and trotting slowly along the causeway. No strain, no sweat, no hard breathing. I doubt they even notice the weight!

Ok, that should be enough clues.

OT, my african violet has been blooming for 5 months now. Very pretty.

No worries mate. It is very nice out there. The penguin colony is thriving, over 2000 at last count.

Think Shire Horses like to eat blooming African Violets? Prolly only if they're deep-fried, huh?

Mmmmmmmmm, deep-fried flower petals.... yum!
