Yes that's the face of a future horse crazy girl. I recognize it all too well. She is such a cutie! I love her expression like she's just won a million dollars in candy. It's priceless! You're very lucky and your Sparkles is equally as sweet.
Almond Joy, Yes its been a little over a year since I got sparkles. She has came a long way from when I first brought her home. I still talk to the lady I traded the puppy to for sparkles, and I ask her all the time how she likes my $50 horse and she laughs and asked me how I like her $3000 dog. She said she is still happy with the trade and she is happy sparkles Is being cared for and used now. She said she knew she could no longer care for her and is just happy to still be able to see her.
And yes I think I might loose sparkles to this little girl. If you ask her she will tell you that is her horse. Her mom said they were at big R looking for some boots and she seen a lead rope and started begging for it. She said she needed it for sparkles. LOL
