On May 5th, Murphy will be four years old!
Daisy and I went to see him on Friday. He’s so huge I can barely get a grip on all that giagantic-ness. I’m guessing he’s over 16hh. He’s still the same sweet, easy going boy that plopped out on Day One.
We love you Daisy and Murphy! (He’s huge. Daisy is 5’11”)
Happy fourth birthday together!
Murphy In The Middle.
Thanks to Nathalie, our first current picture! Yes, he’s really horse-sized already.
He’s still an easy baby..for an almost-two-year-old. His stallion behaviors seem to be limited to sudden duffle bag hurling.
Still, it’s Time.
Daisy is making arrangements for gelding. Meanwhile, Murphy is definitely large enough to move from the co-ed baby pasture to the all-gelding pasture. It’s always an unnerving moment when one must release one’s teenager into the company of adult males.
He’s their size, and still growing, but he’ll always be that cute little foal who stuck his nose in the camera, and said: “Hi. Hi. Hi? Hihihihihihihi HI hi hi hi…wait…I’m still saying Hi!!!!”
The change, other than his missing his playmates, was uneventful. No hissy fits. No prolonged imbalance of pasture dominance.
It’s Murphy. He made friends.
