Most of the time he goes by Jackson -- or a derivative of it: Jacksy or Jacksonian are the ones I use most.
|That's his covered round pen I am walking towards; you can see a hint of his head looking out.|
Earlier this winter, when his thick winter coat was fluffy and white, I started calling him Snowball.
And, every once in a while, he gets a burst of energy. When that happens, he bucks and snakes his neck and I call him Thunder.
He snakes his neck and head at feeding time; he bangs on his gate; and he tries to herd Brett and the hay cart. But, he doesn't normally get more animated than that. Thunder is his least used name.
|This is his view today. I'm looking to the left, out of his window. The goats and the boys' pasture to the right.|
This morning, he was covered in mud. You may wonder how a horse living in a covered round pen, that is cleaned twice a day, gets covered in mud. Jackson likes to roll in the mud created by his pee puddles. Gross, I know. This morning, I called him Pigpen.
|I took this picture at lunch time and he was cleaner than this morning; most of the mud is gone leaving a lovely yellowish tinge to his normally white hair.|
