My Boy turned 20 this month. 20! I thought he was turning 19 and had to look up his registration papers to be sure.
Twenty sounds so old! My Boy came into my life when he was 14. He was in his prime. He doesn't look 20 to me, and hopefully that will improve this spring and summer when he gets ridden more and gets back into shape!
I know I have many happy years left to enjoy this goofy spotted pill, but I think according to the "Here's How" column in this month's Practical Horseman magazine, he is considered "old" or "aged." He does need to have his teeth done this year. He's back on his joint supplement. I think the best thing for him will be to come out of his semi-retirement and get used again!
Speaking of getting MB going again, I scheduled an appointment with a great local saddle fitter! So the first of April, I will have a 2 hour fitting for My Boy to get a dressage saddle! I am so excited.
My lesson was cancelled tomorrow but that worked out okay because I had to make a last minute car appointment. I might have to cut back to just two lessons a month for a while as my part time job fell through and I need to find something else to fund this new passion!
