April Fool’s Day

How clever of the Word Press folks to mess with our “hits” scale today for April Fool’s Day. That brought a smile to me.

No kidding though, today I celebrate Willa’s birthday. So here’s her photo before I go saddle her up for a ride:


It’s no fooling though, that I really don’t know Willa’s birthday. A few years back I picked April 1st as the day to celebrate her birthday. I do know she is now nine years old and I’ve had her since she was a two-year-old. I picked April 1st for her birthday as it’d be easy to remember and, like most horses in N. America, she was probably born in the spring. I also picked it in honor of my mom’s old AQHA Champion stud, Sizzlin Hot. April 1st was his birthday and he was a great horse for Mom.

So happy birthday, Willa and happy birthday to the late “Siz.”

Now let’s go ride on this gorgeous spring day.

  2. Happy Birthday, Willa and, for real, my daughter-in-law, Kim!
    I love the hits numbers for today, despite it being a joke…tears, tears, tears for what might have benn.


  3. Happy Birthday Willa. And Happy April Fools Day. I am attempting my first gag…I’ve taped the water sprayer to shoot at hubby when he turns on the faucet. I hope I don’t forget I did that…then the jokes on me…
    Yeah, that’s gonna happen, I’m pretty sure.

    Have a great weekend.


  4. So that’s why my stat panel had gone crazy the other day. Nice horse you got here. I hope I could ride one soon.
