happy b-day Izzy: you've achieved something very few do!

So um, Isabel's birthday is some time this month. Not exxxxxactly sure which day, but it's in May. Happy birthday mare!!


But... a funny thing happened that has me kinda chagrined (in the best possible way tho).

Remember how I recently talked about Isabel being recognizable in her own right, and the breeding program that produced her being quite well known locally?

Right. So while jump judging at the MCTA Horse Trials, I ran into yet another rider who knew Ann McKay and the horses connected to her - and actually knew Isabel's breeder personally. And it somehow came up that I mentioned Isabel would be 14 this month, and she said 'Uh, no - the "I" horses are 2002. I know this bc the "G"s are the millenials.'

'how could you get my age wrong??? ugh amateurs...' - isabel

So. Happy Birthday Isabel, you're officially a year younger than we all thought!
