This is 'Ekka", one of Mr B's work horses. He is HUGE!! With Miss M standing beside him he looks even bigger and has hooves the size of dinner plates. 'Ekka" came about because he was born during the time the Brisbane Royal Show was on which is also known as the 'Ekka'. A few other horses that we have are 'Indy' - born when the Indy car race was on, 'Cricket' born on the night of our local ICPA Cricket fun day, 'Vinnie' born on the day that Princess Mary christened and announced the twins names and 'Oakey' named when we bought her and the old guy couldn't remember her name and he lived on a property with the name Oakey in it.
Onto dogs...I will only give a few examples because we could be here all day. 'Alvin' is Mr B's wolfhound and of course he was named after the movie 'Alvin and the Chipmonks'. He suits that name and it really does sound like that when you yell it. 'Kirby' named after the people we bought him off and 'Billa' named after a property where we got him from.
