George enjoying his brekkie.
Thoroughbreds are so lucky because they have two birthdays! The one the share with their extended families on January 1st, and their actual birthday.
Today is George's birthday. He is 9!
He is extremely lucky. He was on the track until he was 8. He was in the barn of a responsible TB Trainer that made sure the horses he trained were placed with people looking to give an OTTB a second career. He was lucky that a Canter volunteer when out and took his picture and that when my trainer said "Call on this horse" I didn't argue.
The luckiest thing for George is that he is with my trainer. She believes in going slow and allowing a horse to reveal who they are. So for the past 5 months or so George has been enjoying himself. Turned out, eating, having pedicures and spa days.
Well George, enjoy yourself today on your birthday, because the tack is on it's way!
