There's a beautiful new face at the barn.
This is Karen's new horse, Royal.
He is a twelve year old Missouri Fox Trotter.Look at those dapples! He's gorgeous.
He's also Olive's new best friend.
After a couple days of letting them get to know each other through the fence...
we turned them out together.Not even a squeal!
I'm pretty sure this is the first chapter of a long and beautiful friendship.Welcome, Royal! Olive and I are so happy to know you.
