Temuchin, aka Moochie, is Jerry's full brother. Although he's the same colour as Jerry, he has matured over a hand higher then his 'big' brother. Everybody mistakes Bobby and Moochie for Shetlands, although they are in fact miniature horses they don't have the refined mini horse appearance of jerry or of their sire and dam.

The name Temuchin (Temujin) comes from the original name for Genghis Kahn. Trust Robert (his breeder) to name a small fuzzy brown sweet horse after a bloodthirsty warrior... I've renamed him 'Moochie', as it's more in line with his smoochie, easy-going nature.

Bobby and Moochie are perfectly matched (to the point that I sometimes have to look at their teeth to tell them apart), and make a great pair.
