|Look closer, Benny is sticking his tongue.|
This is Benny, he's a Welsh Quarter horse and he is around twenty years young. He is very gentle and wants to please. But around food (apples and sweet feed) he tries to chase the donkey away. He is a pleasure to ride. I've been riding him in a round pen. So I'm looking forward to ride Benny on our land.
