My photographers are very busy with Christmas coming, so I have no picture for today. That's okay. But I do want to make an announcement:
If any of my friends have pictures of me that they would like to see posted on my blog, please email them to me in JPEG format. I may be reached through my profile (click here). Under my photo, click the link to email me!
Kim, my editor, insisted that I tell everyone that their photo will be used one time only and we will be happy to give credit to the person who took the picture if you would like. We don't make any money from this blog, although, since I'm a horse, I wouldn't know what to do with money anyway. Okay, I would probably spend it on carrots, but that's beside the point.
She also said that any nasty "spammers" (I don't know what that means, but I guess they are bad people) will receive a special delivery of the stuff they clean out of my stall. Oh dear. I guess spammers better not contact me. My stall gets pretty messy sometimes.
Hi Everybody! I'm getting into the Christmas spirit - like my Santa hat?
I'm going to have to talk to my photographers about camera angles and lighting! I'm sorry if I look a little crazy-eyed in this picture. But I'm smiling because I'm wearing my Santa hat at quite the stylish angle, if I do say so myself!
I don't have a lot of work to do, usually. But this week I had to supervise some County road workers. I'm not sure what he was doing, but this shows him going back to work after petting me. So I think he did a good job!
I'm sorry I'm so far away in this picture, but the road workers weren't very close to the house.
I wasn't sure what Halloween is, so I asked Ma and she said that kids dress up in costumes and go around to different houses to get candy. Well, I'm a horse, so I don't have money to buy candy for kids, and I want them to visit me, so I'm going to give out my fan club certificates!
Would you like one of my certificates?
I hope my friends aren't dressed as anything too scary when they visit on Halloween! I don't want them to scare me!
The mornings are getting colder and some days I wake up with
a cold nose, so I designed a nose mitten for myself. See it?
I thought since Ma and Kim both make stuff, they could make me a nose mitten. I already designed it, and that's the hard part, right? It has holes I can breathe through, and also an opening so I can eat carrots!! What good would a nose mitten be if I couldn't eat carrots while I wore it? I would rather have a cold nose than no carrots!
You can post comments below and tell me what you think of my nose mitten!
I'm SMILING because it's Saturday and I get to blog again today!
It's very hard to sneak into the house to use the computer during the week, so I will be adding new posts - and new pictures - on Satudays and Sundays.
It's also very difficult to type with hooves. Maybe someday the people at Acer will make a keyboard with keys big enough for a HOOF!! That would be neat.
I'm very worried. Ma and Dad are talking about harvesting MY carrots from the garden. They want to keep the carrots from spoiling. And I'm all for that, if they feed me ALL the carrots, because aren't carrots supposed to be good for you? They give me my lovely reddish-gold color, right? I think Ma and Dad are planning to EAT my carrots. Help!!
I heard a song on the radio about a horse with no name. I don't get it. How can a horse have no name? I'm a horse and I have LOTS of names. I am proud to be MO Smiley but I like to be called MOey and my people also call me MObaby.
Sometimes Dad calls me a Moose. I don't know what a moose is, but I'm sure they are nice. Maybe one will come visit me some day? I guess if a moose came to visit, I would share my carrots with it.
Kim calls me MObody. I guess that's sort of like SOMEBODY, only it's ME because I'm MO. Hehe.
Anyway, that poor horse with no name can borrow one of my names if he wants. I have plenty.
Here is a picture of me playing with my people in the round pen. You can't actually SEE my people in the picture, but they WERE there, I promise!
I thought if I'm going to be a famous blogging horse I should tell people more about myself. Here is a picture of me enjoying my pasture.
I was born at Morrisville College, so I'm a very educated horse. I found some very nice people in Vernon, NY and lived with them for a while, but they thought I was too polite. They wanted a horse who didn't slow down and let the other horses go ahead on the racetrack. That's okay. I didn't want to race anyway. I would have had to lose weight to be a racehorse, and I like myself just the way I am.
My people in Vernon found me some new people and that's how I came to live with my Ma here in Edinburg. Ma and Kim came to visit me and thought I would make a good friend for Video Man, who was very lonely, so my old people brought me to live here. I love it here. They even put a sign on my stall door with my name on it.
One day a nice lady stopped and took my picture. That picture made me internationally famous because it's on the cover of her book! And she still stops to visit me and bring me LOTS of carrots. Boy, do I LOVE carrots. I also have some little friends who like to visit me. They also bring carrots. I love my friends.

Hi! I'm MO Smiley! Okay, technically my name is MO Shuttle, but my people changed it from Shuttle to Smiley because I like to smile. Like this:
That's funny, right?
Anyway, because I have met so many new friends lately, my people thought I needed my own blog. Here is is! Do you like it? I like it. We will be posting more soon, so be sure to come by for another visit.
