Dominiak – Leica – Marathon Vehicle

This is one of those Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas to me kind of gifts I just have to share.  Say high to DHA’s new Marathon Vehicle, the Dominiak Leica!

  • Hydraulic Rear Breaks
  • Parking Break
  • 5th Wheel Break
  • Airbags all 4 wheels for smooth ride
  • Ample padding
  • Upgraded seat so I stay in it
  • Adjustable seat so even my crazy long legs fit

She’s made in Poland, these photos were taken from the manufacturer. I’m still waiting for her to ship to the US. I can’t wait!  I went with Deep Purple with yellow pin-striping and a sun burst on the wheels.  Should match our beautiful black Moriesians nicely!

I can smell a bucket from a mile away.

Sometimes mom lets me out to “mow the lawn” and I get run of the front yard.  I love this time because there’s so many extra things I get to check out.  I can see how handsome I am in car mirrors, hang out in the workshop with my human dad and best of all is the front porch.

There’s SO much stuff on the porch to check out.

Lately I discovered that they keep chicken feed on the porch.  I used to be able to just walk right up like the humans do and dig through the buckets but they put a rope across so now I can’t.  No matter.  I have a long neck and can get to the items from the ground!

Mmmm. Chicken scratch! I can smell the stuff from anywhere.  One night I figured out how to wiggle under the fence and made my way into the breezeway where mom moved the chicken scratch to.  Guess what I found?! A bucket of chicken scratch!  Mom was a bit mad at me because she thought I ran away.  Silly human, you know I want that scratch.

Good morning! After I finally rested up my new humans let me out to play! Unfortunately before I was allowed out they put some nasty tasting paste into my mouth which gave me a bit of a milk mustache as I tried to spit it back out. YUCK, I hope they don’t try to do […]

For those of you who feed round bale hay know, the hardest part is keeping the bale dry so it doesn’t mold before the animals have time to finish eating it. Rain and warm air can destroy a bale in as little as 24 hours! This simple round bale hay feeder is not only […]

Bad Alpaca Pickup Lines

Mmmm, tastes like founder!

Question: When you think of native or wild horses what climate are they living in? Are they in lush green forage of Kentucky? Or in arid climates like out west?

Horses are arid animals, their digestive system is meant to forage all day on small bites and to keep moving in search of food and […]
