This is Toby, my quarter horse. He starting to lose patience as I made my way to the barn to feed him. Unfortunately for him and his buddy Spike, I had my camera in hand after our first decent snowstorm in North Carolina in years. Typically it takes me a minute to walk to the barn…….yesterday……….about a half an hour. Click, click, click, click.
For rescued pets group backstory. Toby came to us about 8 or 9 years ago. He had suffered an injury to his face and had facial nerve paralysis resulting in a drooping lip and a nostril that wouldn’t flare (this causes major breathing difficulties when undergoing heavy exercise). His previous owner didn’t want him anymore. I intended to do a surgery to remove part of his nostril, but six months on pasture and the nerves completely regenerated. So Toby got to remain the cute boy he is.
