Merry Christmas to you. Or..Happy Holidays if you prefer. No matter what your faith or religion, I hope you have a wonderful day with friends and loved ones.

Saffy is four years old today. Yes, she was born on Christmas Day 2011. I cannot believe how fast time has flown by. Normally, I put reindeer ears on her and she poses for a cute portrait. The other day though, I noticed how mature-looking she has become, so decided to take a photo that shows how beautiful she is.

Saffy is an amazing mare. A tad bossy and we still haven’t quite got the horse/human space business worked out, but she is affectionate, curious, bold and highly intelligent. She seems to really enjoy her schooling and has now been ridden under saddle five times, with no hissy fits. In fact, she’s taken to the saddle like a duck to water.

So Happy Birthday sweet Saffy ❤
