Blue Steel

Tonka hasn't been getting much air time lately, mostly because he hasn't been very interesting. Due to that long lameness on his front right he has been spending his days wandering around the paddock, munching hay, mooching treats and looking handsome. Our friend Chris took this picture of him yesterday (David is convinced that he stole Zoolander's "Blue Steel"):

Anyhow, I just wanted to let everyone (all three of you) know that Tonka remains happy, relatively healthy, and very much loved. I was going to take him for his first ride in weeks today, but the weather here is foul and I am a wuss.

He *is* a handsome devil. Good luck with his recovery.

PS - I'm with you on being a wus in the foul weather.

Make that four of us! I have been a lurker and truly enjoy watching your farm family grow. Tonka is a lucky guy -- it's great to see him flourish under your care.

Thanks! I feel pretty lucky to have him in my life, so I guess it goes both ways.

I had a dream last night about Tonka. I don't recall the details but I woke up in a good mood.
