Happy 30th Birthday Sparky!

Yes, I am THAT person.  ;-)

My wonderful first horse Sparky, registered name Joydale Sparklerslas, turned thirty this year.  I joked about having a birthday party for her back in June, but I never actually figured I would do it.  All summer my friends teased me about not throwing her a party.  Even my hay guy teased me about it and asked when the party was!  LOL!  So I finally broke down and figured she deserved a party.  What a wonderful day!  I am so glad I did it and I am equally glad I have great horse friends who don't think I am completely crazy for throwing my wonderful old mare a party.  

What party is complete without decorations?  I put up her year-end awards from 2006 on the clothesline, the last ones she ever earned.

The backyard before the guests.....except for my son!  ;-)

I put out Sparky's photo albums.

It was quite funny when I ordered this cake from Hannafords!  LOL!  
I have permission to use my friend's photos!  :-)

Horse friends!
