Your morning adorable: Playful pinto keeps himself entertained

October 2, 2009 | 11:58 am

We count ourselves among the biggest fans of Chief, an American paint horse stallion who never lets the fact that he's a horse get in the way of having a good time. (An American paint horse is a breed, while "pinto" describes the spotted coloring that appears both on American paint horses and horses of various other breeds.)

Like a human child, Chief seems not to distinguish between items intended to be toys and his own makeshift toys, like orange street cones and bags. (We bet if he received a fancy toy on Christmas morning, he'd toss it aside and play with the box.) We admire his imagination and his spunk!
