We first met Joy last December after she was taken in by the incredible people at Quest Equine Welfare in Australia.

Joy had been found at one day old, lying in the mud in an abandoned field, having been there all night in the driving rain and cold.   READ: The Story of Joy


In the months since we met her, Joy has been thriving, to say the least! Scroll down to see what she's been up to!!



Welcoming friends to the farm...


"Could this be a long lost relative from the tall side of the family?"



Studying to be a vet assistant!

"Oh, can I give the shots this time? Can I? Can I?"


Taking time out for a healthy meal...

"I'm not hungry, I'll just have a light lunch."



Helping around the house!


"I wonder what those bubbles taste like..."



Expressing her artistic side with arts & crafts.

"Just one more stone and my masterpiece is complete!"



And when the folks at Quest need some help with their accounting, who do they come to? Joy!!

" Boy, these humans. Do I have to do everything for them??"




But Joy is not always the perfect girl...

"Hmmm...if I can just get a hold, maybe I can unwind this all over the house. They'll never suspect it was me!"


Any other captions you'd like to add to the ones we've come up with?

Post them in the comments below!!




Joy is now an entrepreneur! Be sure to visit her shop!!

Hi all :) Thank you for all of your lovely comments. Joy turned the big 1 a couple of months ago, and I've been meaning to pop in and update you with some 'Joy pics'.

Here she is with her latest charge, Amber, an elderly mare who was surrendered into care. Joy has given Amber a 'job' and Amber feels very important 'nannying' Joy. Joy can take it or leave it, but humours the old girl anyway ;)

Having a nice sunbake on a sunny winter's morning:

Pretty girl!

Sleepy Joy :)

We are all busting for the 'grand reveal' when she loses her winter coat!

Thanks again all for your interest in this special little girl :)

With all the saddness in the world, it is so nice to hear about your little bundle of "Joy" and how she is changing lives.  Thank you :)
