Thomas and a horse that took a shine to him. Not least of all because Thomas took him treats like apples, carrots and cubes of sugar.

My son Thomas and a horse that took a shine to him. Not least of all because Thomas took him treats like apples, carrots and cubes of sugar.
We were staying at a place called Champagne Castle in the Drakensberg Mountains (Dragon Mountains) in Natal in South Africa. Our thatched cottage had a big fireplace and although it was warm enough to swim during the day, at night it was cool, and so each evening we lit a roaring fire. The cottage looked down onto a field with horses and every day Thomas would walk down there and sit on the fence. One horse took a shine to him and would wander over and say hello in the hope of an apple. Of course Thomas was only too happy to oblige.
