Farm-life Fridays: Murphy

Look at this big guy! This big draft boy is named Murphy and he's in New York State with Pets Alive. Here's more information on him:

Murphy is an absolutely STUNNING draft mix. He is a retired carriage horse from NYC and he would have been gorgeous all decked out for Christmas. Murphy is a staff and volunteer favorite. A big, gentle giant. He has done his time and would love a pasture with another horse, some daily attention and affection. He can be a little shy at first but really warms up and is sweet and friendly when he gets to know someone and that they are not going to hurt him. He stands perfectly for the farrier or the vet and walks well on a lead line. We have no issues with Murphy at all and we simply adore this big horse. Murphy is probably in his early 20's and he has cushings disease. All that means is he needs daily medication to help him. That medication costs about $50 a month.

Stay warm this December, Murphy, and stay well in 2010!
