The guy on the left is named Sledgehammer. The girl on the right Anna .
Food is the best thing he knows.


In winter he is dressed in checkers and very concerned about his hay.


Isn't he happier in summer? Or is it just Anna riding makes the difference? I must ask Sledgehammer next time we meet. If he just could concentrate more on his feet and less on my camera...
Sledgehammer's career as a riding horse ended when old problems with his feet from his trotting training in earlier years showed up again. He will be remembered for his kind mind, far too kind for the racetrack in the first place.
