Come meet my friend Mike the pony Giveaway!


  Before I introduce Mike let's take a look back at
Nellie and Shamrock. You can read all about
Nellie She is a Wells Fargo Pony.

Nellie was  legendary in her time.
She's our most loved pony so far.
Nellie lives with our pal Ruby now.
I think they are good BUD'S Right Ruby?

Then in 2014 There was Shamrock.
Oh he was a beauty. A Stallion.

He went off to live with the The Wennies of Florida.
Amber and her pack have a special place for Shamrock.

   The Newest Member is Mike.
    He is one handsome guy!


     That's the real Mike in a photo from the Wells Fargo Archives.

 This is Mike today. He is just as fuzzy as he looks.

Mike's coloring is light brown and black.
 His jacket/blanket is a beautiful Red with the WF logo.
If you want you can remove the red blanket coat.

Would you like Mike to come live at your house????
 All we ask that you please do not destuff him.
Mom believes in no harm should come to animals.
If you think you could love Mike and have enough
room for him, Leave us a comment.n Here on this post.
                    Any comment is OK
From Today December the 10th until December 20th.
We are not associated with Wells Fargo. My dad
just does all his banking there. & my mom begged
the nice teller. Like she does every year.

 Love and Good Luck.
Astro and Linda

Please be sure we can E mail you
in the event your name is chosen.


  1. How handsome is that Mike!!! Mom says she would find a special place for MIke if he came to live here. We guess that is because Lightning is definitely a destuffer and Misty is learning. We promise we will let Mike live in a very special place if he came to live here. He really IS too beautiful to destroy.

  2. Hari OM
    OMD OMH... is I permitted to put my little hyooman paw up for a dibs on Mike??? I surely would love to have him come stay! (I quite understand if you prefer he not leave US territory though...) Hope you get lots of interest - I'm sure of it in fact. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

    1. Yes, Yam-aunty This year Mike can be shipped all over the world.

  3. Just wanted to let you know that Shamrock is still here and very much cherished in our new house. He has a special spot on top of our Grandfather clock (that our Dad made) where he can see everything that goes on in our house. We love our Shamrock!

    Amber and Max and the Pack

  4. What a handsome pony Mike is. We have really big outside horses but we also have a nice cozy romping place for Mike in the house and I do not chew on toys or other animals for that fact. I'll be waiting

  5. Crikey .... I love Mike and he's got a red rug. My very favourite colour. I never take that stuffing stuff out of my toys. I sure make a mess of my beds if Mum leaves me home alone though. I get that stuffing' stuff everywhere and my bed is NEVER useable again. BUT ..... not my toys!! Mum says if Mike came to live downunder with me he would live with my very special mini me and my Mum's Teddy bear and I wouldn't even be able to touch him ..... just sniff. Hmmmmmmmph ... not fair!! I never destuff my toys. I've got a Sorry Ass I've had forever. My dear friend Goose from the Gospel of Goose gave it to me but I know Australia is a long way away and Mike mightn't like to be that far from his homeland.
    Wherever he goes I sure hope he is happy, aye??

  6. Mike is beautiful... he remeinds me a little bit of Black Beauty, think I watched the movie 87 times and I always wished that I was Ginger and I always dreamed to re-write the story with including only good things for the horse...

  7. Ohhhhhh I LOVE MIKE!! I am a herding dog (Shetland Sheepdog) and I would LOVE to put him in my living room "corral" so that I could pretend I am in the pastures of Scotland!! Barks and licks and love, Mom's email is cgittleman at mi dot rr dot com DakotasDen

  8. Wow! He's very nice! Problem is I'd probably destuff him. Ghostwriter says she doesn't know why I do this. None of our other doggies did. So I guess you'd better count me out of this give-away. I'm sure someone who will cherish him with all his stuffing inside will win.

  9. Mike is such a beautiful fuzzy pony, we would love if he could love with us too!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  10. Hi Astro, nice to meet you. There are nine of us, so we'd love both you and Mike to come play with us. Mom has a bunch of stuffed animals, she even makes some of them, so Mike could live with them and be safe from sharp teeth.

  11. We would love to give Mike a good home! We would cuddle him! ❤

  12. Oh Astro, what a wonderful giftie....I finks Mike is LOVELY and you are VERY kind to want to let him go to a new home
    Loves and licky kisses

  13. Mike is so handsome. Jan says we can only enter if we promise to not destuff him even if the kitties manage to knock him onto the floor. Destuffing is a no-no here too.

  14. Mike, we'd love to welcome you to our pack. Mom will keep you safe from our toofers!

    -Otto and Osa

  15. What a handsome fella Mike is! We would love for him to come and live with us!

  16. Hi! We just were told by Ann (of Zoolatry) about your give-away! So nice to meet you :) Our Wilhelmina's best friend is Mia and she looks as though she could be Astro's sister! Wilhelmina's nickname is Pony Girl and she takes very good care of her stuffies and would happily welcome Mike as a friend :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

  17. Hi Asto - it's so nice to meet you. We'd give Mike a real good home. My peeps and I love horsies, but cuz we live in the city, we can't have a real live one. So having Asto would be great.

  18. We love ponies! Mike would love Oregon😀 luv, Wyatt and Tegan

  19. Don't put us in the contest: Dougie Dog is TERRIBLE, he DE-STUFF everything, even things he should NOT!!! Just here to say "hi" and good luck with your contest and finding just the right "hollyday-home" for Mr Mike!

  20. Hello!! We found out that Mike wants to take a trip from Ann of Zoolatry!! Tell him if he fancies a trip to the UK, we would love to put him up and not even destuff him, because we are nice like that!! :-)

  21. What a cool looking horse! Does he eat much?

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  22. Awwww we love horses ~ Lee's grandmother always had a white horse on the farm. Lee's grandfather had a perfectly matched team the only one in the state at that time. We hope one of our friends wins Mike.
    Sweet William The Scot

  23. That is a beautiful horse! You are so generous. Alas, our dogs are maniacal destuffers so we aren't eligible for your giveaway. I hope that some nice gentle dog wins Mike!

  24. Mike is SO handsome. We would love to give him a home, I don't destuff my stuffies, the one tear in the bunny tail was totally an accident!

  25. Ann said you were having a giveaway and OH its cute. We are in NZ so can't enter I guess, but if we did win we have some wonderful UA friends we can nominate.

    Marjorie and the
    The blog

  26. Mike is a cutie, and he had a wonderful back story. You are so generous. I don't think we would truly appreciate him. Thank you for the offer

  27. We would love the horse. We would want to destuff him, but Lady thought our human cousins might love him and keep him whole:)

  28. OMC we got an email from Ann from Zoolatry and came right over. They are all adorable. We would most definitely give Mike a super place of honor.

    The Florida Furkids

  29. OMC we love Mike, Mommy says Fenris is the only one that destuffs things, so Mike would just be off limits to the doggies if he came to live here. Don't worry us cats would take good care of him and give him plenty of love.

  30. We love Mike and I promise that if we win I would never destuff him! He would be on a shelf beside some fairies and could give them rides.

  31. We promise and cross our paws that no harm would come to Mike at our house! What a cool Christmas tradition to collect these guys! Our mama loves stuffies, she keeps them all to herself. :-)

  32. Oooooh! Mike is a lot smaller than the horses that live across the street. They scare me but Mike doesn't. He looks so kind. If he came to live here, maybe he could keep Macy in line. *ear licks* Noodle noodle4president at gmail dot com

  33. Mike can come and live with us if he would like!
    Purrs friends

  34. I forgot to tell you:

    Just to let you know we've linked you for a top 5 challenge over at our blog and new dog blogger Riley The Schnauzer at Riley started it to meet some of us and introduce themselves. It was fun and since you know what is like to be a new doggie, I thought you might go over and say hello.

  35. Ooooh, Mike is a handsome devil. I do not need to win, Mike--I hope someone who really, really wants him wins...but I wanted to cheer you on in the contest. :)

  36. Woofs to MIKE!!! Merry Christmas 🎄 Golden LOVE and Woofs, SUGAR n mom Rosalyn
