Lawnmowers R Us


Some of my neighbours have a lovely huge green lawn behind their home in the country and decided to let their herd of miniature horses do the grass trimming for them. They have to be the cutest lawnmowers in the entire world.

They really are a special "breed."

you should put the hammock there, take a book and read while the ponies graze away. they are so cute and it looks like such a serene place.

They ARE cute.
Coincidence. Just today I read in the paper that the miniature horse farm here wants to learn how to train their little horses to be guide animals for blind people, like in the USA.
What do you think about "guide-horses"?!

Horses have to be trained carefully and slowly but they never forget. I've heard of one being used in the US for a Muslim woman who would have a problem with a dog. I think that they could do it, although the housebreaking could be interesting.

Oh, I'd love that kind of lawnmower.

Oh, I loved it, the horses are really cute and also the lawn and palm trees.

Hmm, good points. I saw photos on the guide-horse website of the little horse sleeping on a mat on the floor of a house. That's going a bit too far, no?
Another factor, they say, is the longer average lifespan of a miniature horse, three times that of a dog.
