Dusty’s Birthday


Dusty celebrated another birthday on July 8 when she turned seventeen.  Unfortunately, I was busy and forgot it.  Could be why she’s been so grumpy and unsociable with me lately.  I thought it was just the weather and the bugs making her crabby.  Thank goodness a few Stud Muffin treats and carrots go a long way to getting me back in her good graces.  

Hope you enjoy Dusty's slideshow as much as I did making it.  It was amazing how many moments I had forgotten since we came to know her as a five year old.  All of our horses have their own song and Van Morrisson's 'Tupelo Honey' is Dusty's special song. It just seems to fit her and it's one of my favorite oldies.
