Happy [Belated] Anniversary

to my Magical Unicorn, Apollo :)

It has been 6 years since I adopted Apollo - 6 years!
My gosh does time fly!
6 years, 3 more horses, a farm & a baby ... to be exact.
But Apollo, I love you just the same! I love you more! And I am so glad you have been here with me through all of it. I couldn't ask for a better mane to bury my thoughts and dreams into.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the 'early years'!
And to be exact, I think our Anniversary was 11/22 - but cut me some slack.

This photo was taken just a few days before I made the final decision to adopt Apollo. Clearly he was still being on his best behavior!

 This photo was taken days after I offically adopted Apollo - I was already tourturing him trying to make him wear a santa hat!

 This was always a favorite of mine...he looks like a magical unicorn, no? :) The sun was setting and I was sitting in the pasture watching the horses graze.

 Taken in the Fall of 2006 - always a favorite of mine

Taken right after his teeth were floated. He was still drugged up and he looked pathetic!

 When a pink bow is tied to Apollo's hair, it has my friend Y's name written all over it! She tied pink ribbons and bows all in his mane and tail and then called me and told me he was acting funny. So I rushed to the barn and this is what I found!

Typical Apollo - out in the rain, the somehow managed to get mud just on the top side of himself!

Love you Apollo - here is to 'many' more!
