This is “Big Ben”.
Ben…he’s quite possibility my boy’s favorite horse.
I think the feeling is mutual…
I think maybe it’s because Jake at 6’2” and Ben at 18.3hh they’ve got the height thing in common.
Let’s face it, neither one are vertically challenged.
Or maybe because Jake is a softy. Case in point…after a “grueling photo shoot” the boy took pity on him and let him do a little well deserved grazing.
Whatever the reason, they’re good bud’s.
Active and on the Show Roster.
Position(s) Held In The Hitch (Team):
Right wheel in the four, six and eight horse hitch.
Ben does an excellent llama impression.
And camel impressions too. He also loves to eat and give hugs to anyone who’s willing to stop by his stall and get one of his famous squeezes.
I think Ben has unusual markings…
Uh…everywhere. Like his tattoo? – Just preserving his modesty.
Okay not really, but for the sake of some of you who aren’t livestock/horse folks I thought the John Deere logo/tattoo over “an area” was the thing to do.
And on that note…we’ll say “catch ya later”.
