Happy Birthday!

Today is Jet's 9th Birthday! Although it was raining and you can't walk into the paddock without loosing a muck boot... I trudged my way through to sing Happy Birthday to my boy and give him a treat that I made for him. He is one spoiled boy! He spent the day under the over hang until about 3:30pm (I had an early release from school due to flooding! I got out at 11:45! Woot!) then the rain finally stopped for a while and I brought them all up to the ring to be able to stretch their legs. He must have rolled 10 times... on each side! When he wasn't rolling, he was bucking, galloping, playing halter tag, etc. Just have a good ol' time! Happy Birthday special boy<3 This is a collage from when I had him years ago. I wanted him show name to be "Jitter Bug Jet." Thank god we never showed then!
