Walker has always had just a touch of copper on his nose. During several show seasons, I thought about taking some shoe polish to his coppery nose to make his color more consistent. I never did. I just let him be.
He was my Valentine’s Day present about 10 years ago. We’ve been on trails together, in shows together, teaching riding lessons, and providing equine-assisted therapy together. He is always on “go” and a bit sensitive. He’s been known to try to hide behind me during therapy sessions with enthusiastic clients. He adds pizzazz to our herd with his big movements and dominant personality.
