2009 The Year in Review

It has been nearly a year since I began blogging. A lot has happened, and now I have 30 followers! WOW! I enjoy sharing my day to day experiences and love to hear about yours. I'm so glad that my view of the world is interesting enough to keep that many people coming back for more. Let's look back at some of the happenings from 2009.

One momentous occasion was the arrival of the baby horse which awakened my studly instincts and made me want to gather a herd and act like a wild stallion. Now he has grown up to be a teenager. My how time flies!

In more quiet times, we followed the activities of my real family. This portrait features my big brother Preston winning at the Royal.

As the weather improved, we went riding. This photo was from last March when the ice first melted enough for me to make it out the driveway safely. Now the ice is back! Ho Hum...

Some days were just beautiful. The rest were RAINY!

We went galloping a lot. I LOVE galloping! Brita does too!

But we encountered many hazards. The worst of which was featured in the Great Cow Incident. Jeez! She still looks sinister lurking in the high grass! It was just as traumatic for Brita.

As it was a wet year with record rainfalls, I had many opportunities to plumb the depths of puddles.

And investigated all available soft earth.

Brita and Mom dealt with the consequences.

I struggled with my fear of confined spaces, and have gotten quite a bit better. Now you can shut me in the tin box without me trying to take it all apart.

Did some product testing which, basically, involves destroying things.

Although we sort of put my athletic endeavors on hold this year, I did do some actual work, and tried to further my education.

I learned some fancy tricks, and was photographed for a book.

And there was lots of fun and frolicking!

I'm looking forward to 2010 and hope it will be just as good or better for us all.

Happy New Year!

Happy new year! Hmm product testing eh? I wonder how to get a job being a horse feed tester. Sounds like a great job to me. I will have to do some research. If you hear of anything do let me know.

I just love this blog - so fun! William is just stunning; he's certainly my kind of horse! I look forward to following throughout 2010.

Also... My Elvis also regularly tests products... sometimes for others.
