Eight


Ginger turned eight a couple of weeks ago, which means A: I wrote this and forgot to post it, and B: I've owned her for 4 years now. Time flies!
Almost got her summer coat!


As always, for a moment I was slightly disappointed that we haven't achieved very many of my original goals with her. That feeling lasted for just a moment though, because I'm really pretty happy with where we are.  The journey has proven to be much more fun than all those big dreams I had. I don't think there are enough words for all that I've learned from owning her. Some good, some bad, but the journey has proven to be much more fun than I ever expected. The big mare is all about being your best friend and  keeping life fun and interesting, and who doesn't need a friend like that?
Her other bestie, Bridget

Happy Belated Birthday, Ginger!

(Bridget's B-day isn't until the end of July so I have lots of time to forget it as well - wouldn't want to be the bad 'mom' and forget one but not the other!. Plan on celebrating some time in the fall ;)

  5. Happy birthday Ginger! If it makes you feel any better, I'm really good at forgetting Max's birthday. It's sometime in January.

  6. Hehe Happy Birthday Ginger!!! I like your attitude toward your plans. I sometimes get down on how slowly Chrome and I are coming along until I remember that it's all about the journey and not the end goal. :D
