Sue Chapman of Frisco, Texas, encountered an impostor during her trip to North Texas to save nine mini donkeys from a trip to the kill pens in Mexico.
The animal lover and her non-profit, Becky’s Hope Horse Rescue, raise money to make monthly trips to the area to save sick and weak animals that are often sent to slaughter.
This trip was for the aforementioned asses, but when Chapman arrived she quickly spotted a horse standing among the other animals.
“He just stood there patiently. He didn’t try to shoo the donkeys away. He didn’t try to fight with them. He just stood there like ‘I’m a donkey and you don’t realize that I look any different,’ ” she told WFAA8.
Somehow the horse had freed himself from his stall, gotten by his original owners who were eventually planning to send him to a kill pen, and sidled over to the donkeys who were waiting for Chapman’s crew.
“I don’t know if he just decided at that moment that he loved donkeys, or if he decided at that moment that he’s the donkeys’ caretaker,” Chapman added.
Either way, his assimilation tactic worked. Chapman decided to take the horse home with the other animals she was rescuing, fearing the tricky stallion would die if she didn’t. The horse, who Chapman named Bubbles, was skinny, senior and suffering from frostbite on his ears, signs he would not likely be sold to another farm.
Now this “sweet old man” is a Facebook star. Chapman posted Bubbles’s story to social media, and fans of the non-profit instantly fell in love with the horse.
Bubbles has easily adjusted to his new, safe and comfortable life at Becky’s Hope Horse Rescue, and has already helped raise considerable donations to aid the animal organization in saving more rescue horses like him.
Content in his forever home, Bubbles has not forgotten his donkey friends. Chapman says the horse spends most his time hanging out with his fellow escapees.
If you follow the Twitter account Florida Man, you know a lot of unusual news comes out of the Sunshine State. However, rarely do these down-and-out tales match the unfortunate yet ultimately endearing story of Roger Daltrey the Cat, who was found on the streets by animal control officers in Naples, Florida.
Roger, who resembles a Himalayan with his blue eyes and long tan coat, was discovered immobile with no use of his back legs, no control of his bodily functions, not neutered — and with a bullet lodged in his spine. His story was first reported by The Dodo, which noted that a shelter veterinarian named Karen Brown at Collier Domestic Animal Services decided to take a chance on the feline victim of human cruelty. By steadily administering prednisolone steroid injections into Roger, the kitty eventually gained back use of his legs. And from there, he was transferred to the Naples Cat Alliance for some extra TLC.
Although the bullet remains in his spine (doctors say it’s best for the cat’s health to leave it alone) and his tail needed to be amputated, Roger continues to improve by kitty leaps and bounds since his arrival at Naples Cat Alliance in September. This reversal is, at least in part, due to his special friendship with a dog named Bitsy.
Instead of being euthanized, a fate often suffered by many stray pets in Roger’s condition, the cat spends his days cuddling with the shelter’s resident canine cat-lover. In fact, Bitsy doesn’t even like other dogs, prefers the company of cats and first gained the Internet’s attention for babysitting abandoned kittens.
So, what’s the next step for the furry Roger Daltrey? A forever home, of course. Interested individuals are encouraged to contact the Naples Cat Alliance or make a donation to the shelter in its efforts to save other cats like him.
Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, who was found guilty of murdering Odin Lloyd last year, is facing another trial on Feb. 13 — this time over accusations he murdered Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in a drive-by shooting outside of a Boston nightclub in 2012.
In a Massachusetts court on Tuesday, the prosecution and defense sparred over several tattoos that Hernandez, 27, got in 2013. Two of the them are pictures of handguns. Another tattoo says “God forgives” — written backwards so that it can be viewed in a mirror.
Because both of the guns portrayed in the tattoos match those that prosecutors say were used in the fatal shootings, Suffolk First Assistant District Attorney Patrick M. Haggan argued that the body art “is, in fact, an admission by Mr. Hernandez” and should be admissible in court at trial.
But Hernandez’s defense attorneys disagreed, arguing that was “rank speculation” and that presenting the evidence to a jury would be prejudicial.
“That people get tattoos with a gun on them does not mean that the Commonwealth is allowed to file inference on top of inference on top of inference and get to the point that this is an admission,” defense attorney Ronald S. Sullivan Jr. told the judge.

Baez is best known for representing Casey Anthony. He has since represented several high-profile defendants including Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend Nick Gordon, former Aruba murder suspect Gary Gioradano and “King of Instagram” Dan Bilzerian.
Suffolk Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke has not yet issued a ruling on the admissibility of the tattoos.
Ashley Greene is engaged!
The Twilight actress announced she accepted longtime boyfriend Paul Khoury’s marriage proposal in an Instagram post on Thursday. Along with the happy news, Greene, 29, shared the video that showed just how Khoury asked her to be his bride.
During the couple’s recent vacation to Australia and New Zealand, the Australian TV personality proposed at the bottom of Bridal Veil Falls on Dec. 19.
“This is the most beautiful moment I could have ever hoped for,” Greene captioned the video. “You’ve successfully made me the happiest, luckiest woman alive. I can’t wait to show you my unfaltering immeasurable love for the rest of our lives. #engaged #loveofmylife #futurehusband.”
The footage, which included background music from John Legend‘s “You and I”, captured the exact moment Khoury got down on bended knee, and of course, Green accepted. “She said yes!” the video concluded along with “Our journey begins.”
Khoury, who is Liam Hemsworth‘s BFF, also shared the proposal video on his Instagram page with the caption: “I promise to put a smile on your face for the rest of our lives. You complete me in ways I didn’t even know was possible. I love you more than anything and excited to take this next step in life with you! #foreverlove #myfutrewife #ShesGonnaBeAKhoury.”
The pair have been dating since 2013.
“This is a beautiful love story to witness in my 58 years. I miss them both so much. Love is everlasting,” Todd shared on Thursday.
The drawing, which was made by Ricky LaChance, shows Carrie and Reynolds wrapping their arms around each other’s shoulders. Carrie is dressed as her Star Wars character Princess Leia, while her mother wears a yellow raincoat just like Kathy Selden, her character in 1952’s Singin’ in the Rain.
“What a glorious feeling I’m happy again,” read the caption, which is a lyric from Reynolds’ musical comedy.

Carrie died on Tuesday at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack onboard a plane. The Princess Diarist author was flying from London to Los Angeles on Dec. 23 when she went into cardiac arrest. Paramedics removed her from the flight and rushed her to UCLA Medical Center, where she died four days later.
Reynolds, 84, was at her and Fisher’s Beverly Hills property on Wednesday afternoon when she had to be rushed to the hospital for a possible stroke, PEOPLE confirmed.
“My sister has graduated to heaven, but she has left us all with so much of her, It is a very sad time for my family and all her friends,” Todd previously tweeted about Carrie’s passing.
Fisher and Reynolds are survived by Todd and Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd.
The Live with Kelly host, 46, took to Instagram on Thursday to share a sweet photo of Michael, 19, friend and comedian Rachael Harris, 48, and herself during a snow day.
“Another incredible selfie starring @rachaeleharris and #michaelconsuelos. I’m getting pretty good at this. (Big snow day),” Ripa wrote.
In November, Ripa shared another selfie of the family, writing, “The band is back together!”
Although each of her and Consuelos’ offspring — Michael, 19, Lola 15, and Joaquin, 13 — took after their father in the dark hair department, they each visibly resemble both parents, who have been married for 20 years.
In July, Ripa revealed that her husband and two oldest children were living in California for the summer while she and Joaquin stayed in New York. “Both my son and my daughter are with Mark in California,” she said. “They’re all working out there. The two teens are doing internships. They’re working at film houses, and Mark is working on a TV show for Fox called Pitch.”
A month later, the TV host sent Michael off to college and immediately settled on a project in mind to distract herself from the sadness: transforming his bedroom into a closet.
“I’ve got big plans for his bedroom,” Ripa said ahead of him going off to university. “That bedroom is going to be turned into a mega closet.”
Live with Kelly airs weekdays (check local listings).
Conor Kennedy, the 22-year-old ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift, was arrested in Aspen, Colorado after a fight outside a nightclub.
The Associated Press reports the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct early Thursday morning.
Kennedy is the son of Robert Kennedy Jr., and environmental activist and Mary Kathleen Richardson, who died in 2012 after committing suicide at the age of 52. The Kennedy family member fought another man in the street and was found rolling around on the ground when police officers attempted to separate them, according to the AP.
Officers reported seeing Kennedy punch the man in the head about four or five times, before allegedly struggling against an officer who tried to restrain him.
A court appearance is set for Feb. 22.
Billie Lourd has received many tributes since her mother, Carrie Fisher, and grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, died on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, but it’s her stepfather’s message that may hit home the most.
Bruce Bozzi, who married Billie’s father, Bryan Lourd, in October, took to Instagram on Thursday to commemorate his stepdaughter’s strength in the face of unimaginable tragedy.
The Palm Restaurant Group executive posted a photo of Billie with her mother and grandmother at her college graduation, writing: “@praisethelourd it’s an honor to be your Stepfather. This day, your NYU grad day we had so much fun! Yankee Stadium your mom and I laughed our asses off, as she kept one fantastic line coming after the other – no less when we all fell asleep the night before in the smaller ceremony because it was so boring.”
He continued, “Every time Carrie looked at me she said ‘how are you still awake’! Your grandmother with our sweet Ava was the kindest most loving. So…as Carrie said to me years ago ‘I’m a good stepmother’ I promise I will always be & the strength of these women live so vibrantly in you. I’ve been lucky enough to see this for a decade! Many decades to come…..heaven just got a s— load more fun!!!! I love you @praisethelourd xo Bru Thursday 12/29/16.”
Reynolds died at the age of 84 on Wednesday after being rushed to the hospital for a possible stroke. The screen legend was at her and Fisher’s property when she had to be rushed to the hospital for a possible stroke on Wednesday afternoon, PEOPLE confirmed .
The news came just one day after her daughter, Star Wars icon Fisher, 60, died of a heart attack.
Billie, 24, has not spoken out about the loss of both of her family members, but family spokesman, Simon Halls released a statement to PEOPLE on her behalf on Tuesday.
“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,” the statement reads.
She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly,” Lourd said. “Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.”
