Happy 29th Birthday, Nadia!

My dear old Nadia turned 29 today. She gets hairier and hairier every winter and right now she's shedding fistfuls of hair so she looks really terrible. But underneath all that hair is a purebred Egyptian Arabian mare with one of the sweetest dispositions of any horse.

 A few years ago, we had a birthday party for her and Baby Doll, my neighbor's previous horse, who was celebrating her birthday the day after Nadia's. Check the link to read about that fun day. 

Since this birthday is in the middle of the week, I don't have any special plans besides adding cereal and apples to their regular horse nuts. I'm also hoping to go for a ride on the ol' gal tonight but I'll have to wear old clothes because this is what happened last time I rode her.

lol! Better wear white pants instead.

I often try to give Nadia a cookie or carrot and pet her, but Yalla! and Annie won't ever let Nadia come close to me :(

Happy 29th birthday to beautiful, sweet Nadia. One very special, worth-her-weight-in-gold mare :)

That first photo scared the crap out of me! It looked like she was laying on a trailer or something, then I saw the shadow and realized she was standing up in front of a wall. Sheesh, minor heart attack.

Happy belated birthday Nadia!!!
