Introducing the newest member of our Litzen Zoo!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is Mukluk, a little teeny mini horse who just came into our home and our hearts. He is 31" tall, and a year old, and he looks just like our Summer boy.
I fell in love with him when I visited a mini farm a month and a half ago, and somehow just knew he was meant to be ours.
He is doing great adjusting to life here. He has been "adopted" by our Thoroughbred mare, Whisper! She sniffed him all over, nuzzled him, and then led him over to her hay bin to share with her. Now he follows her everywhere and even copies everything she does. They are very happy together! Summer is jealous.
Mukluk is the sweetest thing you ever saw. He has a soft fuzzy coat, and its fun to groom him because the whole time you kneel beside him he gives you soft "kisses" and nuzzles your hair. He has super loooooooong eyelashes, and the shortest ears on record. His ears are about the size of my thumbs.
I plan on training him to pull a cart and a sleigh, and will start next summer just letting him get used to the feel of a harness. Penelope is also going to do a full 4-H project record on him, so she is excited about that.
Michael calls him my "puppy". So excuse me, while I go play outside with my puppy!
