A New Friend
"Tips" is an elderly gentleman who needed a strong fence. He's been on the lam since November, but was finally captured a few days ago.
His owner, who's a good friend of ours, needed a place to stash him while her fence is mended, so she called us.
Tips shares a pasture with his instant friend, Mr. B. The two old geldings must be sharing stories about the "good old days."
I thought that by taking him in, we'd be doing them a favor, but it turns out that Tips is a favor to us.
He likes us very much and wants to be ridden. He's as spry as a yearling, yet gentle and kind.
