Silver Mystic (left) December 2010
Silver Mystic is a 26 year old owner-surrender, who appears to be in perfect health. He’s very shy with other horses, but purported to be “dead-broke”.
I was worried at first, he seemed so distant from the other horses. But yesterday (12/19/10) I watched him thunder around with the herd, ending up playing a little bite my face and standing side by side with Pepe…. He’s starting to adjust.
But lately, Silver plays with me a little - he will go into Sarge's stall .... and over by the oak tree .... and run behind the stalls and down into the dry streambed .... and otherwise pretend he's free... But feed is a powerful lure ... eventually he just runs into his stall and chows down. All the while, he's watching me, to see if I'm gonna chase him or freak out. I just watch and laugh and wait .... feed is a powerful lure...!
So it looks like 2011 is Silver's lucky year. April 29, 2011, Julia Brozek visited, and she and Silver fell in LOVE! How cute is this?
Here he is with Julia in the saddle - I think they look so comfortable!
Also, since he's come in, Silver has acquired a fan - the lovely Biscuit! Biscuit adores Silver and follows him everywhere (as Lola did for her very brief stay here). Silver is just that guy - like a tiny, white Fonzie!
