The adventures of Gilly the rescue horse and his side kick and partner in crime, Pokey the donkey.


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 8th birthday

 Green icing on my nose! Gilly's 8th birthday was May 5th, I can't believe that I have had him for 7 years! Wow, how time flies. He gobbled the cookies so fast that I didn't really get a good picture of him eating them. Mike didn't get him turned my way as I snapped the pictures.
 These are the two cookies. Pokey was supposed to get one but he said "NO THANKS! those things looks funny and they taste funny!" Gilly said I'll eat yours Pokey, no problem!
Look at the curve of that neck as he was reaching for the cookie, YUM!!! I should have gotten on the other side to take the pictures. The reason they are all sepia toned is because I was looking into the light and you couldn't really see much detail. The sepia shows more detail.
How's that for some funny horse faces? I think the icing got stuck on the roof of his mouth. LOL

Sydney, what? Gilly spoiled? No bet he is a spoiled bugger! I try not to too much though, it makes him too much of a stinker. He only gets treats on special occasions, I do love him a lot!

Kac, yes, the sepia does look good. Thanks, that is a snow picture in the background, did it with the blogger designer. Just added my own picture in a tiled setting.
Got to use the macate reins today, yea, that are GREAT!!! Didn't get any pictures though. Maybe next time!

Happy Birthday Gilly!

I missed my Nadia's 28th and Annies's 18th last month. A few years ago Lisa and I had a regular party for the horses. It's silly, but it sure is fun!!

Did your Mom give you a birthday beer to help you wash down those cookies, too? Here's to many more years with your loving Mom Jane!
