From Phoenix’s adopter:

Thanks so much Monica for chronicling Phoenix’s assimilation into his new herd. I have to say that they have been much kinder to him than at the last place — I don’t see any evidence of “physical reminders” of his place :)

Isn’t he growing??? He is starting to look more like a horse everyday and less like a baby — he is adorable although filthy. I brush him all the time, but it won’t be until next spring that he will probably stay cleaner. The joy of light colored horses!
