Aires turned 2.5-years-old today (forgot until just now...bad horsey mom! Lol) and thinking about that got me thinking that his birthday is only six months away.
So, do any of you celebrate your horse's birthdays? If so, what do you do?
I will be in Washington state for a week before his birthday, but I kind of wanted to do something special for him. I know, I'm a dork, but I don't have custody of my son, so we don't get to do special stuff for his birthday, and I don't know my dog's birthday (he's a pound puppy), so I have to substitute with whatever I can. Besides, the BO, who I'm buying Aires from, doesn't pay attention to stuff like that, so I thought it'd be nice to make it a special day for him. Yeah, it's more for me than it is for him. I get that, so please don't point it out.
I was thinking of getting him something for his birthday, but I'm not sure what. When I got him, I wanted to get a halter with his name on it, but with as massive as his head is and the fact that he's still growing, I kind of want to hold off on that (he wears a draft-size bridle that is on the third smallest hole...at 2.5! ). He's not big into treats, plus I'm not a fan of giving him treats because with the few he does like, he gets nippy after he has them (he loves the oat and apple treats my friend has, but that's about it). I was thinking maybe a set of nice (red) SMBs would be kinda cool. Any other thoughts?
