Unlike Zelda, whose black coat fades out during the summer, Freedom seems to absorb the sunlight and store it in his coat. He gleams. He exudes the golden light of high summer. And it’s not because I spend a lot of time grooming him. Mr. “Don’t Touch Me” wouldn’t stand for that. I’m lucky if I can run a soft brush over him before he gets too antsy. I’m sure the flax seed helps, too.
Chestnut horses are truly horses of the sun and summer!
