Meet Patty, The World’s Most Artistic Donkey

This adorable pot-bellied donkey is named Patty. Seven years ago, she was rescued from a UK auction in emaciated condition and moved to HorseWorld, an equine rehab center where she slowly but surely regained her health–along with a gregarious personality. One day, Patty watched her handler Vicky Greenslade work on a painting with such rapt attention that Greenslade handed her a paintbrush. Three weeks later, Patty had her own easel and was churning out colorful abstract paintings, stroke-by-stroke. “Patty is a huge show-off, she loves people watching her paint,” says Greenslade. “We can’t ask her to do too many demonstrations in a week though, or she gets bored, throws the paintbrush down and walks off–what a drama queen!” Patty’s paintings are available for sale in a busy gallery in Bristol, where they routinely fetch over $150. The best part? All of the proceeds benefit HorseWorld’s efforts to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome mistreated horses. Not only does Patty look amazing in a beret, she’s changing the world, one brush stroke at a time. [Daily Mail]

Gymnast Gabby Douglas’ Mom On Deciding To Let Her Daughter Train Halfway Across The Country

“In 2010, it came to a head and I had to make a decision. There were only two factors to consider: I could either stand in the way of her dreams, or I could get on board with it. And I knew she needed another coach. I knew she needed a higher level of coaching. There were a lot of different components. Her former coach was not a gymnast, he was a swimmer. [Her current coach Liang] Chow was a former gymnast with the Republic of China. He was an amazing gymnast himself, and he produced a gymnast to the level of Shawn Johnson. What might he be able to do with my daughter?”

– Natalie Hawkins, mom to Olympic all-around gold medal gymnast Gabrielle Douglas, talks to The Frisky about her decision to let her daughter leave home to train with gymnastics coach Liang Chow. Chow’s gym in Iowa is located across the country from the family’s Virginia home and Douglas lived with a host family while she trained. We were so psyched to see Gabby win gold in all-arounds and do her part to help her team win gold as well — can you imagine how proud her mom must be? Congrats to Gabby and her whole family for all that she has achieved this week.

Women Box For The First Time Ever At The Olympics!

Women’s boxing is having its first time ever at the 2012 Olympics and I have half a mind to say “this is what feminism looks like.” Right here we have Naomi-Lee Fischer-Rasmussen of Australia, left, socking Anna Laurell of Sweden right in the kisser! (I chose this image because it’s an action shot, not because it was the first lady-bout … it wasn’t.) Fight on, ladies. You’re all making history. [Los Angeles Times] [Image: Getty]

What's Skylar Waiting For?

“Breaking Bad” is one of my favorite TV shows, like, ever, but I rarely blog about it because it usually takes me a couple days to process all the intricacies of each episode. However, last night’s episode featured such a fantastic scene between Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and his wife Skylar (Anna Gunn) that I couldn’t resist posting it. Spoilers after the jump!
