Being with a horse is a journey that never ends. What they have to teach us is amazing; but we must quiet our mind to hear them. ~ jca

Gilly's 7th birthday ~ Cinco de Mayo ~ May 5, 2010

Yesterday, May 5th Cinco de Mayo was Gilly's 7th birthday! Wow, I have had him for 6 years. I made him a "cake" with apples, carrots and rolled oats with honey mixed in; I added this to his regular oats and he shared with Pokey.

Oh, yum-o, Pokey, isn't this goooood stuff??? munch, munch, munch, yum, munch....

this is so good I am almost in a trance! lick, lick, slurp, munch.... how many days until my next birthday, no wait, Pokey has a birthday in September, oh, goodie, goodie!!!

Oh, yes, my birthday, more carrot and apple cake, how many days Gilly???

I'm in heaven! Such a good birthday cake, and I didn't have to go for a ride today either, this is the life!!!!

This is the last shot of them in the barn munching away on their hay, sighing a deep sigh of satisfaction of a meal to die for, in horse-ville that is!

Jacque, I sure am, lucky to have found him!

Sydney, I didn't have a hat, should have had a Mexican sombrero for him! LOL

Dusty Devoe, oh, yea, I do love my boy!!

JeniQ, thanks! he loved his "cake"

Leah, oh, didn't think of have a Mexican fiesta for us and yes, Gilly will eat corn chips!

Alice, if those rescue people hadn't gotten him when they did he would have died, glad they found him and soooo glad I saw him on their web site! Lucky day for both of us!!

Kate, yes, he is still a youngster!

Lisa, thank you, I too hope Gilly has a lot more birthdays.

gtyyup, Gilly and Pokey had a grand time with the "cake". Gilly always shares with Pokey. Pokey will get right in Gilly's bowl too and help him. He's a kind horse!!
