Birthday Horse

Tag Me, my mellow Appaloosa turn 22 on April 9th.
Tag was purchased in 2002 at the age of 15. I am his second owner and he has always been a trail horse. He is the perfect first horse, very willing and compliant. We celebrated his birthday with carrots, a good grooming session (shaving off his winter beard) and a brief ride in the sandlot. Since it was so muddy, we worked on obstacles such as walking over a tarp, weaving cones, pulling a tire and chasing Rocky with a swim noodle.
Rocky tracked the tire as we dragged it around the sandlot.
