According to TMZ, Lisa Vanderpump has added two mini horses to her pet menagerie. Ken apparently had them flown in on a private jet. Horses on a plane! Do people even do that? I assume that Arabians got here by boat and are bred here. Anyway, we will see the whole thing on RHOBH next season.
TMZ says that Lisa is wants the horses to be therapy horses in hospitals. I thought that sounded ridiculous, how can you have a horse in a hospital? But then I thought about it, and they do allow dogs and other pets in as therapy. So I looked it up and found this site which shows photos of mini-horses in hospitals working with kids. So cute!
Apparently the mini-horses come in the house too! But another thing I don’t get is how TMZ says they will be staying in the yard. Is her yard even fenced? Did they build a stable? I have so many questions.
Who is the mini-horse expert here? I don’t know much about horses. I was invited to go horseback ridng by some people who knew my parents in Libya. I had a healthy fear of horses. My mother was against pretty much everything. When the horse owners left, they wanted to give me their Arabian. Looking back, they probably saw how much it would have helped me to have a pet and a hobby. But my Mama cockblocked that right away. It was not expensive to have horses in Libya. We just weren’t much of a pet family once we started traveling. And going out to care for them would have been a commitment. Even though the horses were kind of passed around amongst the ex-pats when they moved to their next assignment.
Anyway. The other thing I discovered is that there is some sort of surplus of mini-horses. Rather than paying thousands and flying them in via private plant with the seats removed, you can rescue them like dogs and cats. Do not Google “miniature horse rescue’ or you will find yourself with one very soon. They are so cute. Maybe Banjo needs a mini-horse?
TMZ says that Lisa has not named them yet and will let “her friends” (the cast?) help name them. TMZ recommended Brandi as a good name. Oh the shade of it all.
