My "Fly Girl", Gem

Remember The Fly Girls from the TV show, "In Living Color"? (Jennifer Lopez was probably the most famous of them.) Anyway, I call Gem my Fly Girl because of her Arabian spirit and the way she flies in from the pasture, sometimes.

How pretty she looks against the red barn!... her freckles stand out. Or is that flea bites....flea bitten grey is not a flattering term for what is usually a very pretty horse.
