Dirty Old Man

For the record Tonka turned 20 a couple of weeks ago. This is not a great picture (taken from bed with my iPhone) but it demonstrates one of the reasons we call him a dirty old man. You can barely see him in the shot because he is campflaged by dirt.

Ah, the joy of mud... I remember walking down the lane to the field where I kept my dark bay cob and wondering who owned the new grey cob in the field. And then the moment of panic as I realised there *wasn't a dark bay cob*.

And then I got close enough to see that the grey cob was a very, very, very, very muddy dark bay cob.

That was the point when I started turning her out in a rainsheet. At least there was enough clean space for me to put a saddle on.

Nobody seems the least bit concerned by dp's offhand comment that she takes her iphone to bed. Seriously people, it may become necessary to stage an intervention and I'm counting on your help.

"ountel": an mild injury caused by rolling over on an errant iphone

I've gotten the impression that dp does a significant amount of work in bed. And why not? I do.

HBTY, Tonka!
