Tarq grown up!

27 04 2008

Yes dear visitors: the Tarq is almost 8 years old, and that means he is almost officially a ”grown-up” horse!

not only is his birthday coming up, we are also going on holiday!!!! Hurrraaayyy!!!

leaving Thursday returning on Sunday. We are going to the woods, and staying at a place where we can get right into the forests! I’m staying there with a group of friends, all nutters with horses. I’m só looking forward to it! And as it is also Tarq’s birthday I’m giving a birthday party. We’re going to have great Arab food, tea, qawa and music of course!

This is the card I made to celebrate and for the invitations!

Just to make things clear! Tarq is not being sweet here: he’s trying to tear the buttons of my coat!

On the back of the card I have a Haiku by Shiki Masaoka

The summer river:

although there is a bridge, my horse

goes through the water

see Trouble with Tarq!

Lovely photo, as usual, and matching poem. I hope we’ll see some photos of you riding Tarq. Your holiday sounds so ideal. My private fantasy has always been to go to a riding stable for an intensive vacation of lessons, followed by treks through woods, streams and over fields.
