7 years old? yeah right!

January 1 marks the birthday for all Thoroughbreds according to the Jockey Club, though I don't really "celebrate" Lucy's birthday until the real deal later in the month. However, we did go out and have a snow ride this morning. I didn't lunge or warm her up at all because the footing wasn't that great outside so she was a little spooky and kind of hot, but we got through it and I had fun riding in the snow.

So Happy unofficial Birthday to Honolulu, who is now 7 going on 2, and Happy Birthday to all our Thoroughbred friends.


WOW do I need a tan!

    1. It was about 30 degrees but I had just finished cleaning stalls so I was really warm! By the time I untacked her and put everything away, I was freezing again.
