Rosie (Rosalind) the Red Roen Clydesdale.

I want one. And how's her other mother doing.

Yes, you can have one Tilt, but you'll have to come here to collect!
Her "other mother" is...ecstatic.
I'll provide more photos later.
kind regards,

Ben

Is to have a girl good in regard of horses? Or is she a donkey? (sorry if this questions are irritating, dont know much about those animals)

Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

Thanks Chris.
I don't know what it makes me.
Its getting a bit ridiculous now; the menagerie consists of five horses, two dogs and two cats.
And there's an eclectus parrot at my mother-in-law's on the mainland that we can't bring to Tasmania.
I think I need to get another job so we can feed everyone.
There's not much money but there's lots of love to go around.
Anyway, I better skeddadle back to work.
kind regards,

Ben

Hi Hanzze,

No, she's definitely not a donkey. She is the same as her mother, a Red Roen Clydesdale. The Red Roen is the strawberry/red and white mottled coat.
We're just happy that the foal is alive and well as it was one month overdue. Personally, I would have preferred a male but - it doesn't really matter.
kind regards,

Ben

You are welcome, my friend.

I'll make sure she reads the messages here tonight after she gets in from work and visiting the foal again.

A nice Jataka Story: KUṆḌAKA-KUCCHI-SINDHAVA-JĀTAKA., where Sariputta was the Foal.

Ben, sorry for my ignorance in regard of names. Clydesdale is translated "Brauereipferd" which means brewery-horse, so its a strong working race horse.
Just that! *smile*

That is accutrate, but probably not a race horse, but a draft horse for pulling large wagons and plows and such.

Beware Ben...the young one is vulnerable to recruitment into the lolcat cult by yr cats...
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Plwk -
As my kids would say "thanks for the LOLs!!"
Its too late. The cats are the mafia that run this household.

Hannze,
Yes, as Tilt said, a Clydesdale is also known as 'draught horse' and 'shire horse'.
Traditionally, they were work horses pulling ploughs and heavily laden carts.
No doubt, used by lots of breweries.
Anyway, here are some more of the wee horsey.
One with its mother, Heidi and one shortly after it was born.
