A view of coffee shop life

starbucks mini horse

Okay, so now maybe I've seen everything. People bring their dogs to Starbucks at Ansley Mall constantly, but today is the first time I've seen anyone bring a baby miniature horse.  Actually, there were two of them, both on pink leashes brought by two men wearing cowboy hats.

Note that the horse above sports pink hooves. It being Ansley Mall, I thought it was politically correct  to ask if this were a male or female horse. The owner looked at me blankly and finally said, "Duh, get a clue."

"Is that some kind of special paint for horse hooves?" I asked.

"No, it's just ordinary nail polish," he said.

"Okay. Well, do they have like a litter box that they share?" I asked.

"They stay in the back yard," the owner replied.

"Ask him if they curl the eyelashes," a shy friend whispered to me. The horse did indeed have amazingly long lashes, but I declined asking further questions, since the owner seemed annoyed.

Anyway, I think I want one.
