Tonka meets Grace. (Or John may spell it Grayce.)They were instant sweethearts.

Here's a photo to show her color as of now. Her face is grey too. And her mane is a little curly and her eye is sweet.
She's getting closer
More often
And John is just tickled.

Tonka says hello.

I rode him for all of 5 minutes today. It was wonderful to be back on my good horse. But he's still not feeling great so I didn't push it. After I unsaddled him I sat on the ground and took his picture, as you can see. We went wandering around the yard, he got a partial bath with betadine scrub on his scabby skin, and then he got to go play with Scout again. As soon as I put him back he pushed Scout around, bit him on the butt, picked up his feed pan and chased Scout with it. I don't know, maybe he was showing off for the new girl next door?

Oh, and by the way, Grace was not the least bit afraid of or worried about seeing me ride Tonka. She just wanted to follow us around and hope for another chance to visit my handsome boy.

I can't believe how fast she's coming along. That says a lot about her intelligence and confidence. I agree, her eye looks intelligent and calm. I'd be jealous, too, if I were you!

Grace seems very sweet already. I'm not surprised that you're jealous, but your boy looks pretty good to me too.

I worked all weekend so didn't see your post until this evening. She is beautiful. I am so happy you got her.
