This was me in Sept. 1991 with Shaka when we were at St. Croix Equestrian in Hudson WI. We both had color to our hair then, now we are both grey! We both have arthritis, but he didn't get fat. : ) The farrier was here today and Shaka was on the list. The old man needs bute to get his feet trimmed and his left leg still needs to be done like a pony, but he is a trooper who gives his best. He is and will always be my 'Prince of Horses' and the best and worst horse I have or ever will have!
This me in August 2008 with Ari at a fun day in River Falls WI. Seventeen years later and another grey horse and once again in WI! I also squeezed into breeches that are almost seventeen years old, and squeezed is an understatement! What I really miss when looking at the old photos is my dark hair. I don't like being grey, but I don't want to be blond and it is my only other choice. I tried having my hair colored dark as I was going grey and it is a maintenance nightmare. I would take my dark hair back over my thin body. I do love my grey horses though. So, of course most of my horses are bay. : )
