So long old boy...

This is Cinnabar. He was a boarder here for a few summers and belonged to my friend Marina down the road. Last week he died of old age and we will miss him...he usually stayed for about 3 months and his profile became part of the landscape...he was the most gentle, sweet horse and was great with kids..
The other cool thing about Cinnabar was that one of our goats, Leaf, was in love with him...
He would follow Cinnabar everywhere and do whatever Cinnabar was doing. Leaf could walk under Cinnabar and between his legs and the gentle old boy wouldn't flinch at here's to a lovely old horse, the kind that people dream of...
