Red in the sun

Prince and Red.

His mane is exceedingly long, quite proper for an Arabian (though his face looks mostly Thoroughbred, despite his having only 25% of that breed in his Anglo-Arab genealogy.)

Some photos of Red from my trip Upstate to the Farm. He’s getting up there– 28 years of age; still the master of the herd. He’s lost many of his back (chewing) teeth, which has resulted in his subsisting largely on mash, though he still spends a lot of time grinding away at green grass– but his jaw has lost some of its muscle. Still a handsome devil, though, and still feisty. More images after the jump–

Look at his perfect still-white feet! He is perfection, in a way. He always challenges my having left. That’s the truth…

Say some words!
