Nothing To See Here, Just Your Standard Horse On A Roof

Horse on a roof

It’s a rare, impressive instance in which a legitimate photograph outdoes a Photoshopped piece in all-around inconceivability, but I daresay this real-life horse on a roof does just that. Pat Downey’s brother-in-law Archie snapped this bizarre photo of one of Pat’s racing horses just hangin’ out on the roof of her New Brunswick farmhouse. Don’t worry, Must Win was safely removed (airlifted, perhaps?) from said roof shortly after said photograph was taken — but how in the world did he get there in the first place? Pat’s husband Stephen is convinced the colt, bored and lonely with the rest of his horse friends away for training, must have gotten on the roof by climbing a “small knoll” behind the home’s garage. “He’s like a two or three-year-old kid and he was just looking for some excitement and he got into trouble like a regular kid would do,” said Stephen. Just like a regular kid, but a horse kid. [Gawker]

As far as designers go, Karl Lagerfeld is notoriously loyal to his muses — for instance, while most brands will hold on to a spokesmodel for only a few years before ushering in the new guard, Karl has retained Keira Knightley as the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance since 2006. Model monogamy is kind of his thing … so, with that in mind, expect to see Lagerfeld’s feline daughter/wife Choupette landing more magazine editorials than Kate Moss for the foreseeable future. (Okay, maybe not Moss, but you catch my drift.) She made her glossy debut last year in Harper’s Bazaar, followed shortly thereafter by a spread in V alongside Laetitia Casta. The stunning Siamese (we think) even landed the cover of Grazia Daily‘s September fashion issue. Now, the next installment in Choupette’s growing oeuvre is a starring role on the July 2013 cover of Vogue Germany, photographed by Karl himself. She and Linda Evangelista are looking preeeetty cozy — we wonder if there might be some surrogate cat-mom arrangements to be made? If only Linda were so lucky! [Huffington Post]

This Is How Parisians Trim The Grass

In an effort to make Paris a greener city, this week, city officials introduced a group of two-foot-tall Bretton sheep to “eco-graze” their way through half an acre of park in the in the 19th Arrondissement. These adorable lawnmowers will be keeping the grass well-maintained until October at which time they’ll be moved to a warmer climate. I didn’t know it was possible for me to love Paris more, but I do. The world would be a happier place if sheep replaced all lawnmowers. [The Atlantic]

7 Adorable Interspecies Adoptions

Earlier this week, important news broke: a mutt named Lejon adopted white lion cub JoJo after JoJo’s mom became sick and was unable to take care of her. They’re the best of friends, and oh my God, my mind is exploding from the combined cuteness. Make. It. Stop.

But Lejon is hardly the only animal to take up caring for another species in  need. After the jump, we’ve got several more surprising (and super cute) inter-species adoptions.

The Thing About Ostrich Penises

Oh, the things I learn in a day of trolling the interweb for penis stories. Today, oh glorious day, I learned that the ostrich hard-on, unlike other bird erections, is of the blood vascular variety as opposed to a lymphatic type. If you are learned in the science realm, then you’ll know that reptiles and humans (proud members of the mammal family) also get blood vascular erections. Meaning blood flows to the penis and makes it hard. Interesting point being that ostriches may be the evolutionary erection link in the penile tree. Other important discovery: the most common form of bird sex is known as the “cloacal kiss.” This is when the girl and boy birds touch their cloaca (the small all-purpose orifices in the butt region) together so sperm can pass. In conclusion, I mostly just wrote this post to freak Amelia out. She hates birds and their penises. [io9]

Silly Giraffe Gets Herself Stuck in Pool

Watch Video

While filming the Brit TV show “Wild at Heart,” Lucy the pregnant giraffe, who stars in the series, broke into the pool area and got in, but wasn’t able to get out. Crew members drained the pool, and even attempted to get her out by building steps. But when that didn’t work, the staff eventually had to demolish a wall in the pool in order to create an area from which Lucy could hobble out. The bigger they come, the harder it is to get them outta the pool, I guess. [ITV]

No, Alpacas Will Not Wear Your Foolish Hats

I could look at alpacas all day, because I consider alpacas, just like corgi dogs, to be Nature’s Comedy. Like, HOW DID THE UNIVERSE COME UP WITH SUCH A FUNNY, WEIRD THING? Apparently the folks at Yestadt Millinery agree. They took some of their hats to Raspberry Hill Alpaca Farm and tried to get the alpacas to wear them, but no dice. Because hello, they’re alpacas, not hat-wearing fools. [Buzzfeed]

Watch A Blind Kitten Learn How To Play

Watch Video

Oscar the Kitten was born without formed eyeballs, and was adopted from a shelter at just five weeks old. The poor little guy had a tough time adjusting to his new environment, until his owners brought out new toys for him to play with — balls with jingle bells in them so that Oscar could follow the sounds they made. This video is Oscar’s first experience “playing!” [YouTube]
