Sweet 13!

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated heartily in these parts because it's Angus' birthday!
He was a rescue from the Premarin industry in Manitoba... my Canadian kid.  He came to me at 6 months old, never handled before, a wild 500 lbs.
Now, on his 13th birthday, he tips the scale at 2000 lbs.
He is twice the size of a regular horse.  There's a lot of junk in that trunk.  Axel, who stands beside him, is a horse, not a pony or a midget.
"Who are you calling a midget?  I will stomp you into next week!"...
...if he can ever leave his protector's side:

Here's to another 13 years with my big teddy bear.
