Nerd horse is turning 11 today, and for his big birthday present he’s getting… his hocks checked. Wow… I sure know how to spoil my critters. While there won’t be any kind of grand pony birthday party today, I’m taking a moment this morning to appreciate the old man.
As firmly moves from an adolescent nerd horse to a mature, stately tweed-jacket-with-elbow-patches-professor kind of nerd horse, it’s hard for me to believe that this is the same creature I met five years ago.
People don’t believe me when I tell them he used to be pretty damn ugly. They ask why I call him “Nerd Horse” when he’s not nerdy at all!
Well, he used to be.
Age and time and proper work has served him well.
To keep with the tradition that I do around this place, here are my 11 most favorite pictures of Simon throughout the past year.
So Happy Birthday to my eleven-year-old nerd horse. He is my heart, and what I’m most proud of.
