Yesterday was Ruby's 6th birthday. Yes, I know, I typically go by the generally accepted Jan. 1 date for most of my horses, but hers is actually January 2 so it's easy for me to remember, haha. Facebook "On This Day" reminded me, so I made sure to give her a special birthday candy cane and snap some pictures.
|This photo is from her 4th birthday. Clearly things haven't changed much... haha|
Hard to believe she's been in my life almost five years! Although I purchased her as a long weanling in late 2011, she didn't arrive until a few months later (in February of 2012).

Do you celebrate your horse's real birthday as opposed to Jan. 1? Do you know what it is? (Disclaimer: I know Ruby's and Cinna's by heart, but not the rest of my horses, would have to look at papers to be sure!).
I have no idea when Stinker's birthday is so I don't worry about it. He is going to be 8 but still acts like a 2/3 year old...ReplyDelete
You'll appreciate that when he's like 30 and still acting like a teenager! 😉Delete
Aww happy bday!!!ReplyDelete
Ruby says thank you! She got to stuff her face on a round bale all day, special candy canes, and didn't have to work -- so probably an A+ day in her world hahaDelete
I know William's because it's pretty hard to forget that he was born on a leap day :) I also know Sullivan's because I was there and he shares a birthday with a good friend. The rest I have no idea.ReplyDelete
Oooh, a leap day baby, how fun!Delete
I will never forget Cinna's since I was there 😁 and incidentally, she shares a birthday with my grandma, which will be bittersweet this year.
she is so very special...and sweet! You need to schedule her other massage she is owed!ReplyDelete
Aww thank you! I have no idea what she is owed a massage for but she adores you and your magic hands, so I'm sure we'll find time somewhere 😍 we need to go trail riding ASAP, surely hunting season is over by now?? HahaDelete
I don't like to admit that Mort is technically 8 and we're still struggling with canter transitions (and a million other things that ponies who are 8 shouldn't fuss about). Lol, other than that I'm just a bad horse mom who doesn't do anything fun for my horse's birthday.ReplyDelete
Age is just a number 😉 haha. You guys have come a long way and it's only been 1.5 years!Delete
Happy Birthday Ruby! Halo's bday is Jan 2 also.ReplyDelete
Ruby feels so honored to have Halo as a birthday buddy 😀Delete
I celebrate on their birthdays. Except that I forget Irish's and am too lazy to get out the papers. So instead I Know that's it's may so I go with May 21. He doesn't seem to mind. :)ReplyDelete
Haha I like that! I'd imagine he doesn't know the difference anyway 😉Delete
I wish I knew my horses' birthdays. I only know Nilla's.ReplyDelete
I hadn't thought about that with the mustangs. Do you celebrate the day you adopted them? Or just go with Jan. 1? Or not do anything? HahaDelete
