Yes they sure do...Lucky and Ice Man are an inspiration to me!

Ice Man is the one who had eye surgery. I just noticed the other day that he still has his sweet long eye lashes...even though his eyes are sewn shut around the supportive ball placed in the socket area...brought a big smile to my face and warmed my heart.

Thanks everyone! :)

I thought you may have been confoosed! LOL...but then again, maybe I didn't make it clear. Either way - as you pointed out - Ice Man is definitely LUCKY! :D

Some updated photos of Lucky and Ice Man. Ice Man is the blind horse, Lucky is his sighted companion. Let me know if the images are too large and I will resize them.

3/3/10 RIP my dear friend and teacher, Lucky.

Lucky has been laid to rest. Ice Man, the blind horse, now has a new sighted companion.

Thank you both for your kindness. Letting go has been a tough path to walk these days.
