Molly's story is incomplete without talking about her buddy, friend and playmate, Gus. Gus is also 8 years old and most of the time it is nor 100% clear who exactly is the boss amongst those two horses.
I realized some time ago that I would have had the unique opportunity to study the changes in hooves when a horse is translocated from the desert (Southern Texas, where Gus was born and raised) to moderate climate, where he lives now. I have only a very incomplete record, but some quite illustrative pictures of the changes in his hooves such a move brought about. I will post them when I get a chance.
