i haven’t posted a mighty man update lately because i miss him so much it makes me too sad. but i have been out to visit him several times in the last month and my mom has been filling in for me and calling with updates. she’s now stocking organic carrots in her fridge just for my boy. several weeks ago she let me know mite had apparently been to the salon and was now sporting braids. i had to take a drive out the following weekend just to see. here he is looking dapper in his new hairstyle.
no one could think he isn’t the most beautiful horse on the planet – am i right?
this weekend i saw him again. his braids had come apart and the mighty zegen was wearing a face mask! for a brief moment i had the thought – it could be possible that mighty had been missing me too and his eyes became irritated from crying – but then i thought not – and proceeded to worry about what happened to my baby boy. he didn’t seem nearly as upset with his mask as i was and we had a good time catching up.
(he reminded me a little bit of a woman i once saw on first avenue wearing a 3 layer niqab – you click here to see the resemblance.)
as usual he didn’t want me to leave and tried to kick down the fence. i kept trying to get in my car but had to go back 3 times and assure him i would visit again soon & have mom bring him some snacks during the week.
