McDonalds.Horse: Of Course, Of Course


I wrote about the the Walmart.Horse website story earlier this week, and I want to share another amusing .Horse website that popped up recently on Reddit.

Have a look at McDonalds.Horse when you have a chance. The website colors are red and yellow like the McDonald’s hamburger chain color scheme. The homepage has a photo of a statue of Ronald McDonald riding a horse (apparently the photo is from a McDonald’s in Amarillo, Texas, although I am not 100% certain of that).

So as to not cause confusion, there is a note at the bottom of the website that states that it is an “Art project, not to be confused with the restaurant chain that is also called “McDonald’s”.”

McDonalds.Horse was registered on March 11, which is a couple of weeks after Walmart.Horse was registered. It looks like the domain name registrant is based in Canada.

I wonder how many more .Horse domain names we’ll see registered and used in this manner. Hopefully McDonalds (the restaurant chain) takes this in stride (pun intended) and doesn’t go the legal route.

  1. Is is just me, or do these .horse websites seem like a blatant marketing stunt by the people behind .horse to bring awareness?
