Meet ‘Boofer’, the beer drinking horse


Boofer beer drinking horse

YOU CAN lead a horse to beer, but— Boofer, an ice-cart horse owned by George Sharp, of Paddington [Sydney], has his daily glass of beer at a Darlinghurst hotel when his round is finished. But he refused to drink the beer while the photographer was looking. – Townsville Daily Bulletin, December 17, 1946


If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
