Elsie is one of my general pasture herd friends, one of my favorites (don't tell my dog Stella - Elsie once seriously scared her). A large pony, Elsie will follow me (even when my carrots are gone). She is respectful of my spance and enjoys a good conversation along with a few scratches. Friends with both Red and Lyra, Elsie is the social butterfly of the GP. She moves easily between the little bands that make up the GP herd. Every summer she leaves the pasture to accompany her owner to work in a National Park. I'll miss my friend and will look forward to her return.
