Strange Pet Combinations

Do any of your pets have ‘strange’ friends? Are your cat and dog good mates ... instead of chasing, hissing and fighting ... it’s all purring and cuddles?

Nature is full of unusual pairings ... the goat and tiger in a zoo ... they became friends when the tiger refused to eat the goat.

In QLD ... a retired race horse ... called ‘Buddy’ ... has found a new best friend. It’s a chicken ... called ‘Chilli’.

After racing career of three starts for three last places under the name of ‘Grand Liar’, Buddy was bought by the Stoopman family where he enjoyed a more successful stint at dressage and show competitions.

Now 16 and living comfortably in retirement, Buddy has grown fond of Chilli, one of the family chooks. Sometimes Chilli will even jump up for a ride.

Owner Krystal Stoopman said the duo seemed to genuinely enjoy each other’s company.
