Why I Should Never Have *Actual* Children

So, in all the excitement with Chamie, I've missed a certain gorgeous, lovely, perfect Thoroughbred's birthday. Cripes, it's like 16 Candles up in here. Or more precisely, 11. His sister is getting all the love and he's getting left behind with Long Duck Dong. Or something.

Mom, you don't even have a recent picture of me. What the FRICK?

I had such a lovely ride with him today. He was soft, supple, forward...we got our leads in both directions. We jumped a cross rail in both directions, and he enjoys it so much. I know my boy, and after a brief warm-up, we jump that little jump, and he's suddenly in front of my leg and happy to work. He will do anything I ask, but some things he likes better than others.

Bubs, you are my Dream Horse. You are going to love your sister (SISTER! Don't get pervy with her you fake stud!). Thank her, because she made me the rider and horse woman I am today. I love you so much-I can't believe you are already 11 and I've had you for over 2 years. They have been the best 2 years of my life, and I can't wait to experience the next 20 with you. Kisses, bubs...I will spend the rest of our lives together trying to make you as happy as you've made me.


  1. Happy birthday to a beautiful boy!

  2. Happy Birthday to your boy!

    I have an award for you over at my blog. Please don't feel like you have to redo if you already got this award - I was late getting to it!

  3. Miles!! Happy Bday you sweet boy! 11 in 2011? That's luck for life :)

  4. Aww! Happy Birthday Miles! Look, your mama got your a pony for your birthday ; )

  5. Happy birthday, Miles!

    Miles and Gem are only a few days apart on their birth dates and are the same age. We have also been together over two years...same as you guys! Cool!

  6. Happy birhtday Miles!! :)
    Sounds like a awesome ride.

  7. PS did I mention I LOVE the Long Duck Dong ref, Baaahhhhaaa!
    Automobileeee? LOL!

  8. Happy Birthday Miles!

    And I'm sure he'll be happy to have another lady friend in the pasture next door! Miles and LaShore have the life.....ladies on both sides! lol!

  9. HAPPY Birthday, Miles!! Bar says it is so awesome to be born in a year where your mom can always remember you age. Katie (my daughter) was born in 1990 so I usually remember her age, too. Unless it involves math. Then I under-age her by 10 years.

    Katie turns 21 this month. Bar was 11 on April 1st. Silly pony.

    And obviously, you (Sarah) and I are close to the same age because I also get the Long Duck Dong reference. Sigh.
