When I was too pregnant for the dog to lay on my lap, she got creative and would snuggle up next to me, with her face across my chest. I snapped this picture one night when she slept on me for a few hours.
This is my daugther talking to our new foal, Dimma. They developed a real rapport, so that Dimma always believed my daughter was her real, foaly sibling. She still believes that, I think, even if she is now 5 years old and a grown up Icelandic horse!
