Mr. Gus' Update

Gus hasn't been featured in a while on the blog, but it's high time he got some of the recognition he so heartedly deserves.. 

From the snapshots I get of it - Gus' life certainly seems to be charmed, not that we expect anything less from the big man.

Gus in situ

From all accounts Gus seems to have life pretty well figured out.  He's got his big green pasture, perfect for snoozing and escaping any expectation of "work"

Gus is closed.  Come back later.

But there's a price to be paid for such a wonderful life.  The love of a little girl comes with some risk - particularly if there are scissors involved and "all the other horses have short forelocks"

uh oh.

Not Pleased

But the toll must be paid!

All in all, it seems like a small (although slightly tragic) sacrifice for such a good gig.

Special thanks to Gus' Mom for keeping us all informed of Gus and his many adventures.  Love that big horse!!!


  1. awwww sweet Gus! one of our most sainted lesson ponies just received the same hair cut... tragic, but cute all the same.

  2. Ohhhhh my!!! 😂

    Glad her mom is capturing these moments, they will be great stories later!!

    What a wonderful home for a wonderful guy!!

  3. Yay so glad he is doing so well, he is such a stunner ♡

  4. Oh! That is so cute :) Gus's girl gave him bangs! It is nice to see him so loved (if a little short in the forelock). Reminds me of the Velveteen Rabbit. Being loved hard by a child is a different standard of beauty ;)

  5. My friend did that to her ginormous WB gelding and it was all I could do not to guffaw when I saw him. She saw noooooothing wrong with it so I held it in... Lucky Gus to have someone who wuvs him!

  6. We've all had bad bangs at least once in our life Gus! :)
