Wishful Wednesday With Ben


Ebène (aka Ben): Little Neighs, Everyone! Ben here! The Apple lady said that there had been so many questions after my photo on the Manly Monday post that we should have a post just about me. Thank you, Apple Lady, and thank you all for caring about me!



So, my name is Ebène, which means Ebony as I am all black, Ebène de l'Aumone. I am about eight months old. My daddy is a famous champion stallion called Titus de Vanoise, and my mama is a lady called Hôtesse de l'Aumone. But I think that most of you know best my half-sister, Violette de l'Aumone!

The Apple lady first saw me in the field where Violette used to live when she originally met her, in the first part of January. She immediately called my breeder because she knew him from the Violette days and she also knew he wasn't always great at paying attention to his horses and finding good homes for them. You know what? She guessed who my daddy was just by looking at me! Apparently, I look like him a lot.

Me:

Daddy:

Mama:
(Violette's Mama too!)
 
At the beginning, I was a little bit shy but the Apple Lady told me about apples and let me have a taste. They are so yummy. So now, I go up to her every time I see her and she gives me apples and scritches.


That's really nice, but you all know how it is. We all need to find a Forever Home, and the younger the better. Sadly, the Apple lady simply doesn't have the means to take on another large horse, but she swore she would find me a home. You see, one of the sisters between me and Violette came to a sad end because they could not find her a home, and she swore that would never happen to me. And I have been wishing very hard that I would find a Forever Home. AND I HAVE!!!

So, guess what I am going to be when I grow up?


I am going to be the Percheron equivalent of a Budweiser Clydesdale! The nice brewery gentleman who owns this place saw my photo on FB and even though he barely speaks English, he telephoned the Apple lady and said he really wanted to buy me because I am so handsome! Isn't that the coolest?

So, in another couple of months, I will be leaving my birth family behind and moving to Bavaria, in Germany!


Little Neighs from your friend Ben who will one day be a Big Bad Brewery Horse!

  14. Ca c'est une super nouvelle.
    Et l'éleveur me met vraiment en colère. On ne fait pas naitre des chevaux quand on sait pertinemment qu'on aura des problèmes pour les vendre. Ca me donne des envies de meurtre.
    J'espère qu'Ebéne sera heureux pour de nombreuses années.
    Bonne soirée
