Okay, one more quick little story about yesterday's visit. This one is really cute, so I couldn't resist.

I had the good fortune to be present when Panama made an amazing discovery. I went into the tack room, which is actually just an old chicken house all cleaned out and fitted with shelves and saddle racks. Panama stood in the doorway for a moment, looking at me, then walked down the outside of the building a few steps.

He was standing with the lower part of his face visible through the window that is next to the door, so I put my face in the window and tapped on the glass. I thought he'd probably spook, but it was actually rather the opposite: His eyes went wide, and he abruptly dropped his head so he was looking right back at me. I could totally see in his face that he'd just figured out what that little box was, and that he was surprised and interested, not scared.

My horse is such a funny creature sometimes.
