Friends, today was the best birthday I could have asked for! The weather was warm and beautiful, the skies were blue, the sun dried up all of the mud from last night’s rain… and I even got a birthday party with a super special birthday treat! Mommy bought us all party hats, and she made me a Rice Krispie Treat cake with mini marshmallows and peanut butter chips! She even put a candle in it with the number “six,” because I’m six years old today! Of course, she didn’t light it… she knows I don’t like fire very much.
After my birthday party – and the yummiest jumping day treats I’ve ever eaten!!! – I got to do a super awesome workout with my Mommy! We warmed up and blah blah blah… and then I jumped a FOUT FOOT COURSE! It was the most exciting course I’ve ever jumped! I’ve never done a full course at that height before, and I did it perfectly! It was a difficult course, too… Mommy and Daddy were both SO pleased with me! I have to admit, though… I was pretty pleased with myself, too!
After my hard workout, Daddy gave me a shower. Even though it was already almost 5:00pm, it was still about 70 degrees outside, and sunny! It felt really nice to have a shower, because I was REALLY sweaty. It was the first HOT day, and I worked HARD! Mommy iced my legs and let me stand in my stall eating hay until I was ready to eat my dinner grain. Mommy and Daddy gave me a little more of my birthday sweets, and then they gave me hugs and said goodbye.
Mommy told me that she was very proud of me for behaving like a grown-up-six-year-old today. I think I’m going to like being a six year old! And, of course, I get the day off tomorrow to rest my tired little muscles!
Now, I’m exhausted… I don’t usually do this, but I think I’ll take a little snooze while I wait for my night hay. I hope y’all have a nice night… Catch you tomorrow!
