When Laura came to the farm to give Bint Marscay a Tuesday evening bath, she almost didn’t bring her camera. It’s a good thing she did. As we trundled around in the golf cart looking for something interesting for Laura to photograph in the light of a beautiful sunset, we paused to visit with Sun King awhile. Always a horse with a sense of occasion, Sun King saw our attention as an opportunity to turn a quiet evening into PARTY TIME!

    Absolutely FABULOUS!! I have tears running down my face…tears of such JOY going picture to picture!! Someone (? Who ME?) Looked full of beans that day and couldn’t wait for someone to come and show how happy and joyful he is to be at Old Friends, the ‘top happening senior & others LIVING community’ and be able to show off the majesty of the HORSE for all to see, and what we already know!!🐎🎃
