This is Max, who's half-quarterhorse and half-thoroughbred. If you think his left eye looks funny, you're right. The eye had to be removed, and the upper lid is sewn onto the lower at the bottom of the socket. (I talk about it in the fifth book.) He's "lipping" my coat sleeve, but also licks coats and hands, unlike a lot of horses. He hums too, usually when we're walking cross country, lazing along beside farm fields. In this picture, he's hoping for an apple. He gets two, and he knows when he's only had one.
