Happy birthday Valentino!

I foresee many gingersnaps in your future :)


  1. Happy Birthday big guy! Lots of treats for you today I'm sure.

  2. Happiest of birthdays you handsome guy!

  3. Yay - happy birthday to the handsome gray!

  4. Happy belated birthday to Valentino - I hope he enjoyed some gingersnaps for me - we share our special day!

    Also, just read your last post...I need to watch the gingersnaps entirely. I agree that outdoor physical work - in my case horse work - ends the weight struggle. I have always been fit as a runner, but I finally am getting the nice arms I always wanted from serious barn chores. Unfortunately the Florida vacation snuck in a put some soft back on, but I am back at it now and one more horse should equal even nicer arms, I think. Thanks for sharing your journey - I love the idea of focus - in riding, in eating, in life. Words to live by. I call it "quality" - my motto from Robert Pirsig!
    Also...I finally am following your blog...don't know how I missed that step - duh!

  5. Valentino, You handsome hunk-0-horse! Happy horseday!
    Gingersnaps may have to be one I try for my mare, heck, I love them!..good call Val!

    MANY~ MANY Horsey returns!!!
    KK and Wa mare~

  6. Val thanks you all for the kind birthday wishes. He luxuriated with a full body massage / grooming during which he alternately dozed, and grabbed snacks of hay - followed by (almost) as many cookies as he could eat, and then dinner :)


    Thanks for the reminder - I loved Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.. may be time for a reread!


    I'm going to have to get that Mary Wanless book - it sounds really good, and my pelvis needs all the help it can get! :)

  7. Happy Belated Birthday to Val! I'm just getting caught up on reading your blog.


I love, love, love my readers, and knowing that you've stopped by - it really makes my day.

However, to avoid the new illegible blogger word verification, I've added comment moderation. Lesser of two evils.

Please don't let this stop you - keep those comments coming!! :)
