pony express

I got a lovely email from a 10 year old reader of Magic Hoofbeats, who is also a horse-drawer like me. I sent her an email with an attachment of this horse drawing.

Her father wrote back saying she'd like to send me one in exchange, but only the actual drawing, so could they have my address? Awesome girl! Not long after I got this in the mail.

(In case you didn't recognize it, this is a great homage to the cover of the book.)

Of course I sent her a drawing on paper back.

Not much is as exciting as actual mail these days, it's become so rare. Thank you Rachel and family!
