Happy Birthday Jack

Photobucket Hi it is me, the DOR.
It is Jack's birthday today. I have been blessed to know many horses in my 50 years. Jack has become my best friend, partner, therapist, and the highlight of everyday. I am so very lucky to have him in my life. He is a gentle soul with a wonderful sense of humor. Jack is a patient teacher. His mission is to make me a better horseman, one that he is very kind about doing. Jack loves his friends, is kind to those who may not be so nice to him, and is always finding a way to have a peaceful existance. He is honest, faithful, smart, and has the biggest "try" of any horse I have known. In short, I think Jack is as close to perfect as they come.


Here is one of my favorite pictures of the "King of Bling". He got a new saddle, a box of Honey n Oat granola bars, and ten pounds of carrots. The Trailboss even smooched his little nose.
Have a grand day and don't forget to hug your horse.

Happy Birthday Jack - Hope your new saddle is comfy. My saddles used to really hurt my back, got my sympathy. Hey, your DOR forgot to mention your cool, expense paid vacation to trail school. Ooops, maybe that isn't exactly a presenty kind of thing Jack. Look at it this way, with your new, even buffer physique you will drive the mares totally insane over you. Think of it as stud-muffin camp. Oh yeah. Your friend. Red.
