It All Started With A Mini

just not another pretty mini horse

While Gregarious Gus is indeed a mini horse, he is so much more than that.  In a short span of time, Gus has become an iconic symbol of the fact that anything can be accomplished if you put your mane and tail into it.  He serves as Dean of the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.).  Gus the Gregarious One also serves double duty as the  exalted Editor in Chief of the world renowned #AnimalMusings.  You are probably familiar with #AnimalMusings by now, since you are on their website.

@GregariousGus is a well known personality in the animal Twitter world, with an extraordinary following.  Gus is available for public appearances.  The fee is not as high  as you may think.  Amazing what a bunch of carrots will get you.

About Gregarious Gus - Capsule Version

The #barnyardlawyer

 Since 2006, Gregarious Gus THE #BarnyardLawyer himself has led the effort to permanently eliminate nearly all semblance of useful legal information. He has been at the forefront of nearly every major public legal victory. We define victory very loosely.


He is so successful, there is a separate section on Gus, the Dean of the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.), as well as the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) itself .   It is the second one down next to this one as a matter of fact.   Click on the tab and check it out.

Gregarious Gus - A Mini of Many Parts

There are times, particularly around Mardi Gras and Saint Patrick's Day, where Gus's Irish heritage comes to the surface.  He can be quite the reveler when the occasion calls for it.  Of course being the high profile personality that he is, Gus is rather circumspect with whom he celebrates.

 Always the Gregarious One, Gus has modeled for the most accomplished portrait painters in Mount Dora.    Being so community minded,  Gus also makes time for the local paint-by-numbers crowd.

Gus is especially Gregarious and festive around the holiday seasons {nothing to do with high octane eggnog}.  As such, more than once Gus has played Santa for good little colts and phillies .

Our Very Own Editor-in-Chief in Action

Gus the Gregarious one was not always the Dean of the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law.  Here you catch a glimpse or two or ten of him in some of his earlier endeavors.  More like escapades. 

Gregarious Gus & His True Love

 About a year or so ago, Gregarious Gus, a young mini horse, came to reside at RK Farm, a beautiful stable with 19 horses.  Little did he know he would meet a 32 year-old mare, who would quickly steal his heart.  

A Day with Gregarious Gus

No truth to the rumor that one of his ancestors was part of the Pony Express, the predecessor to today's mailman/girl.  You'll see.
