Sadly, I missed my horse's 21st birthday.
On the Big Day, April 13, I was in the throes of the flu, did not even go out to see the herd a few of those days, and frankly, would not have cared if Big Foot strolled through my back yard.
So today, Stormy and I went out on an Owyhee Birthday Ride!
Here Stormy shows what he thinks of an Owyhee Birthday Ride, as this is probably not what he would have chosen to do on his birthday. (Standing around eating is his first, middle, and last choices, always.)
"Uh - why?"
"Uh - why?"
And it wasn't just a Birthday Ride, it was an Educational Ride - Professor Stormy is escorting a young student on the trail. (the horse, not the rider!)
We stopped to check on the Great Horned Owl nest on the way. (look closely, and you can see an adult, and 2 babies in the pic)
The old man has to put out a little effort climbing up the ridge…
But the Birthday View is worth it.
Happy 21st Birthday, old man Stormy, The Most Beautiful Horse On The Planet! ♥ ♥
My 22 year old Arab would prefer an eating and resting celebration, just like Stormy.ReplyDelete
Nice photo of the owls.
Happy birthday to a handsome boy <3ReplyDelete
Poor Stormy....had to go on a birthday ride. I have two 22 year olds and missed one birthday already. Happy Birthday Stormy!ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday, Stormy! I know you really enjoyed that ride, but don't let anyone know. *G*ReplyDelete
