When I see this picture I feel like Leo is telling me to cue the music for "I'm Too Sexy" Leo is a really handsome horse just standing out in the field, and he has three beautiful gaits as well. I'm sure he had a fabulous jump to match his lovely movement. It seems that it is always the really good ones who have both the temperament and the talent that have the unfortunate injuries and the rogues seem to keep going forever.
Apparently he was really using this time to get the lay of the land like any good politician, and after awhile he began branching out and spreading a little bit of Leo time around for all of the horses in his field. This is still the case today. I never see him spend time with any one of his roommates in particular, he just consistently makes the rounds to all of the horses in his field. He loves to engage in mutual grooming with other horses, and I have a collection of pictures and videos that feature Leo enjoying a "groomfest" with several of his roomies.
Poco, Leo and Sparky
Apparently Leo learned through his political informants that I was going to write about him this week, so he offered me this series of pictures a few days ago.
I hope you have enjoyed meeting Leo!
