The Mustached Horse

I never thought I would see
Tom Selek meets Mister Ed
is something I would have said
did not exist in this world,
especially colored and curled,
but in Britain lives Alfie
and a mustached horse is he.

  1. He looks like he's munching on somebody's wig! Cute tale, Rachel.

  2. hahaha next he'll want a horn
    Then he'll be a mustache wearing unicorn
    Wouldn't that be fun
    Enjoyed this one

  3. Too funny. Thanks for the smile.

  4. @Eric 'Bubba' Alder - Hehehe. He DOES look like he's munching on someone's wig. :)

    @Pat Hatt - Now I want to get him a horn for Halloween. Do you think that would be considered rude or mean?
