Happy Birthday Mr. Blue

I hope this video works, I've been having trouble with it.

It’s that time of year again when we get to wish Blue “Happy Birthday.”  He is now eighteen years old.  We’ve had this wonderful horse since he was an amusing four year old. 

I don’t think there is much more I can say about Blue that I haven’t already said. Blue has a special place in my heart and always will. He is one of those extraordinary horses that will bring a smile to your heart when you are around him.  He has a personality that is so unique it would be an understatement to say he is quite a character.
I would also add that he is more affectionate to his humans than he is to his herd members. He’s always been a bit of a loner and seems to relate to people more than other horses. Maybe its because humans may be harboring treats. You never know when a carrot or apple will appear! So after a full day of searching for that elusive blade of perfect grass he’s more than willing to suffer through hugs and ear rubs.

Quote for Today
The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.


  1. I love the quote at the true.

  2. He sounds very like aero - "more affectionate to his humans than he is to his herd members"
    But at the same time Aero hates to be separated from his equine buddies.
    I must look up his birthday. I have no idea!
    Happy birthday Blue!

  3. Happy birthday to an excellent Blue!

  4. Happy Birthday to your handsome Blue! The video worked for me until 2:44, then it stopped abruptly. Sorry!

  5. happy birthday Blue!!

  6. Happy Birthday Sweet Blue. I see apples and carrots in your future.

  7. Well, here! here! to your beautiful quote today...I so agree! And a very Happy Birthday to that handsome horse! My Ladde turned 19 last Friday and sweet Harley Horse will be turning 18 on April 8th...sigh. How the time does fly.

  8. Happy Birthday Blue!! Hope you enjoyed your day and got all that you wished for, handsome guy :)

    Enjoyed the video montage, GHM, thanks for sharing. Blue's a few months older than Liam ;)

  9. Happy birthday, Blue. I think some horses do prefer humans--I have one of those, too. They're wonderful!

  10. Happy belated birthday Mr. Blue. You are well loved.
