Here is Oporto with one of his little pony friends. He was a feisty late-gelded stallion (never “just” a gelding) but acted like a solicitous mother mare around the ponies. They adored Oporto, but were a little rough on him. This pony had just finished biting him on the shoulder, and you can see Oporto is gently twanging a fold of skin on the pony’s neck to remind him to be a little more gentle. I loved watching them all hanging out together…there was always something going on!
