At Penny Oaks, Connor took second by less than a point to his former pasturemate Marvin, being ridden by his new adult amateur owner's trainer.  Marvin started excitedly sniffing Connor when I rode up next to her in the awards line, and she apologized, saying, "He's always had a thing about ponies, I have no idea why he likes them so much."   She didn't know who I was, and I said, "I think I know why he likes ponies so much, and this pony in particular..."  She was delighted when I explained that they were separated best friends.

It was a happy reunion!

Long lost friends!  Okay, it's only been a few months, but still.
