I mean, sure, he "turned 8" with all the other 2009 thoroughbreds on January 1.... but we all know the truth. This guy was actually born 21 years old. We can delude ourselves about his 'relative biologic age' all we want haha, but the reality is that this horse has never been a 'baby.'
|handsome boy got a gorgeous sunset for his birthday. but also his sheet bc boo rain and storms....|
Lol.... seriously tho, I made sure to give him a couple extra carrots after our ride. He already gets his face stuffed with food whenever I see him bc #skinnyottb, but what's a little extra every now and then?
|sure, the colorful skies foretold the storms to come.... but pretty!|
So. Maybe now that his body is slowly catching up to his more mature and aged-like-a-vintage-fine-wine brain, maybe we're actually going to start seeing some real progress on the flat? One can only hope! And in the meantime, hopefully the big guy is enjoying the few extra little spoils ;)
