It's not much of an exaggeration to call it love at first sight. Lily and Cotton immediately latched on to one another and bonded on the trailer ride home. We put them in separate pens for safety's sake, but it was clear we had nothing to worry about.
Except for a gelding, Cotton seems rather... Capable. More on that later.
Cotton is a palomino Tennessee walker / quarter cross. DH's best friend has had him a while, but he's getting beat up by the herd. He is a bit on the slow side (I don't like the term lazy) and pretty calm. Doesn't really spook. But he is a young thing, and not finished. But he is good for trails as long as he has a friend.
And he is a lover. Meets you at the gate. Follows you around like a puppy. Beautiful,expressive eyes. Sensitive but not overly so. A bit of a tweenager.
We are all quite smitten.
I'm sure he will be blogging in no time.
