Danny’s 30th Birthday

dannybirthday

This May, I was lucky enough to celebrate my horse Danny’s 30th birthday! We have been together 25 years now, so this was just another milestone under our belts. Our friends helped us celebrate, with summer-themed refreshments and a barn BBQ. Danny was not showing (nor acting) his age one bit, thanks to lots of elbow grease, clippers, and SmartFlex Senior Pellets.

Of course I busted out the old photo albums (I think more laughs were had on my behalf – can you say flashback equestrian fashion?!). Danny scored lots of tasty treats, including peppermints (his favorite!) and Uncle Jimmy’s Squeezy Buns. And of course, there was cake for the human attendees too – a fun surprise from my barn mates. Needless to say, at the end of the party Danny was happy to be returned to his paddock for a hearty roll (because being too clean is clearly overrated).

Here’s to many more, Danny!
