I've had a really long day attending the Region 5 Board of Directors meeting in Ellensburg (other side of the mountains) today so I'm way too pooped to post BUT I can't let this day go by without birthday wishes for this very special boy! This is one of my favorite pictures of the little charmer. As you can see his mother is quite tolerant of the dog checking out her foal......or is it the foal checking out the dog? Whichever, this boy turned out to be quite a lover of small animals. He even has his own cat, if you can believe that.
Right from those first days as a kitten, Squeaker used to jump into his stall to visit but because the stall has a dropped floor she was unable to jump out when she wanted to leave. Instead when she would cry to get out and he would pick her up by the nap of the neck and place her on the ledge on top of the short wall so she could jump out. Have you ever seen a stallion carrying a kitten like a momma cat? I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it myself. He's one very unusual horse if you ask me.
If you haven't guessed it from the picture or the story, the happy birthday boy is none other than Legs. I can hardly believe he's 15 today. It seems like only yesterday I was teaching him how to breed mares. If you haven't read that story, believe me it's worth the read. How far we've come since those days.
Happy Birthday, Scandalous Legacy!
