Happy 30th Birthday Peregrine!
One of the great advantages of being 30 and a horse is you get to enjoy, not one, but four birthday cakes. And you get to eat the whole cake – guilt free. No sharing with anyone else, though I did pick grass for everybody.
And now that the morning chores are done and Peregrine is taking a nap after the first of his many Birthday surprises, I have a party to get ready for! Remember, everyone is invited. Even if you can’t join us via the internet, I hope you will share in the celebration by giving your own horses a Birthday treat from Peregrine.
At 11:35 pm thirty years ago today, I welcomed my beloved Peregrine into the world. I greeted him with his name – his full name that only the two of us know. Tonight at 11:35 I will speak his name again. I will thank him for staying with me for these thirty years. I will thank him for all the gifts he has given me, and all the amazing journeys he has sent me on. And I will read to him all the messages that people have been sending us. Thank you everyone for letting me share my Peregrine stories with you, and for taking his gifts to your own horses.
