better late than never

This is my last day of my twenties. Tomorrow I turn thirty and to celebrate, Merlin is moving home to the new paddock here at Cold Antler. It took three decades but I finally got a pony for my birthday.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow and a whole new decade to experience! I have to say, the best presents are ALWAYS those you buy yourself, because you chose EXACTLY what you want!

Hope you have lots of friends to keep you company on Cloud 9!!

Give Merlin a hug from me please, as I only ever see horses in the distance these days and I miss my Fahly-horse.

Congrats, Jenna! You will love having Merlin at home-- I'm about your age and just got my first horse last week. It's surreal looking out at the pasture and seeing her there :-).

If this weren't such a meaningful event, it would be a funny read. Didn't every kid (especially the girls who seem to bond so well with horses) want a pony for their birthday or Christmas? So wonderful that you got such a great horse. Enjoy the heck out of your special day. You worked hard for this horse. (My birthday is in July also but I am more than twice your age and didn't get my "pony" until I was 47 years old.)

It's probably already your birthday here in Australia, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope it's a wonderful day. Enjoy the coming-home of Merlin! What a magnificent creature you have there.

Am currently reading Barnheart and thoroughly enjoying it - thank you!

Happy Birthday Jena! I'm glad that Merlin gets a new paddock. Enjoy! PS: The thirties aren't bad at all. Take it from some one who is well through them and just about done with his forties also. I'll be hitting 50 this year.
