Every time I turn into the barn driveway I notice that Phantom is standing near the fence by the mares. He is turned out in one of the smaller paddocks that shares a fenceline wih the front field where the girls hang out. The mares don't seem to give him special attention. And Phantom doesn't seem to be pining after them. He's just "there." I have no idea what it's all about (Alfie).
Phantom shares "recess" with Pugsley of the endless tail and Dansuan, one of the sweetest horses ever. So I'm very happy with the company he keeps. The trio seems to be pretty sensible.
