Red Cloud (aka ‘Snickers’) lives at the Osuna Ranch, in the paddock across from where Romeo lived. I went there yesterday to visit horses and he was unusually glad to see me. Normally a horse who is quite reserved, I was pleasantly surprised when he wanted to talk all about Romeo, his new experiences in the arena (his owner recently put him in training and he is loving it!), and how much he missed seeing me.
I was deeply touched by his completely unexpected affections and flirting. These fabulous photos of him truly capture his magnificently masculine and powerful presence. My favorite is the one above in which his ‘come hither’ look says it all!
