    Default As of tomorrow, my horse is legal...

    ...to drink, that is!

    He turns 21!

    Yay for Windsor. Perhaps I will crack open a beer for him. I wonder if he likes Guinness? Maybe Mr. FG will share his stash... (or maybe not, since Win bit him last week!!)

    Anyone else have TBs celebrating birthdays tomorrow?

    Star will be 24 I think, Autumn is 36 today,Missy is 26.
    Missy is a red head, Ooops, a chestnut, as is Autumn. I have noticed Autumn getting mellow, now she snaps her teeth, and lifts a back leg, before....look out, any time any foot.
    Missy on the other hand, I could cheerfully euthanize.......What a B##CH . Kick your head off without notice, makes sure she gets the best spot at the hay bale, and is a general bully.
    Star is great, level headed, fantastic babysitter for both 2 and 4 legged critters. Loves his treats, and brushing.

    They were all OTTB's

    Give that old man a Labatt Blue. He's in western NY now. Make sure to drink to many, many more years together. Neither of my girls are legal yet, but I will allow Casey to have a peppermint Peep for New Years. (She foundered so 1 peep is a big deal in her low carb world.)

    Happy Birthday, Windsor!

    I hang my head as I admit that I have encouraged underage drinking in horses. Both my 20yo and my 11yo have enjoyed the occasional beer for years.

    Hey, my folks let us kids have the odd beer or glass of wine at home growing up and we turned out OK!

    Adding to the list, our paint is 29 now, although he ignored me this morning when I told him.
    With a mouthful, speaking with a shrug, he said age is a matter of mind, if you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
    OK, he is right.

    I guess technically Sam is 6 now... but I prefer to pick a birthday for him. I can't decide whether he's an Aquarius or a Gemini, though...

    Surf Guitar turns 15 today...15 going on 2 perhaps...so no beer for Surfie

    YAY Windsor & all the other birthday ponies! I have yet to meet a horse that doesn't like Guinness.

    My OTTB man Opie is 16 today ("real" birthday is Feb 16th) and can finally get his drivers license so I don't have to haul him around.
