Last Sunday Bill and Natalie and their young son William came to look at Patches the rescue pony. They took him home on a trial basis and were to let me know in a week... Tonight I got this e-mail:
"We are sure that Patches found his new home! On Wednesday, William and I gave Patches a bath. They both liked it except Patches wasn't keen on his face washed (but tolerated it). Yesterday, Patches let William ride him with his little western saddle around the yard. Today, we went up the street to the mail box. Patches lets William lead him all over the place. I will keep you updated, and send you pictures...
And yes, I am smiling!
