the big 3

Koda and Nemo turned three on Friday, and Saturday (respectively). It was a pleasant surprise when I got home from work and found out we were indeed making the drive up to Iron Horse. We gave the boys a birthday hug, brushing, and three (of course) carrots apiece. Their humans celebrated by going out to eat afterward, complete with two microbrew cheers - one for Koda and one for Nemo!

What?! You didn't even share the birthday beers with them?

Happy birthday to the (almost) big boys!

I don't think they would have let them in the microbrewery lol. Hopefully next year they'll be at home, and we can share a slurp - after we ride!

Thanks Kate, it's been fun watching them grow up.

Happy Birthday boys! I didn't realize these colts came from Diane until I was talking to Bill, the farrier, just the other day! That's pretty cool! I know Diane and a few of her horses. We are in a saddle club together and she always brings her Apps for people to ride in the annual fun show. They do really well.

Happy Birthday to your handsome boys

Thanks Fern & Jessie. Yep, it's a small world. Diane's mare Pistol is Koda's dam, and Nemo's grand dam.

awww Happy Birthday Nemo and Koda !

Rosie's is July 4th, and I have no idea when Bonnie's is so I celebrate on mine. We don't really know exactly how old she is either, except for the vet's estimate based on her teeth.

Thanks for the wishes Jeni. I like the solution you came up with for Bonnie :)
