Rex in the frost

Here's an old video I wanted to share. This is Rex (or Fairhaven's Sexy Rexy) He was I think 5 or 6 years old in this video that was taken about 4 years ago. He was a 15hh black purebred Morgan stallion. (Since gelded) A total dude to ride but a bit of a nightmare to handle. He was particularly fond of sharking anything he could get his teeth on, including body parts, not maliciously, just cause he liked to. This video was taken from the top story of a house that overlooked his paddock, I think he knew we were watching. It was one of those days when its so cold the frost never melts. Somehow he got so much joy from sliding the bin over the ground, it went on for quite some time. The blue bin that he is carrying is h-e-a-v-y, like, I would have to use both hands to pick it up and struggle.


  1. I'm trying to load some pictures of him too but blogger is not co-operating!

  2. Yeah I'm having trouble posting video clips. Cute vid, aren't they easily amused.

  3. Very cool! Horses are majestic animals and it is so fun to see them enjoying themselves!

  4. Too cute! He's gorgeous. I love black horses and Morgans too even though I don't have any personal experience with the breed. Thanks for sharing the video. :)

  5. He looks like he's having a great time :)

    Our human loves horses - she was always sad that she never had much to do with them :( Only when she visited her cousins on their farm every year!

  7. Hi Emily & Pepper - been trying to get on here to leave a comment for ages but Blogger seemed to be having terrible problems the last couple of days - half our blog friends were down!

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that we're SO happy to hear that you're still in our dancing contest - we were really worried that you had pulled out or given up - we would have been gutted as this contest was partly inspired by you! :-) So can't wait for you to get back and show us what you're planning for your routine...and in the meantime, hope you're having a gteat time in Singapore!
