Naming Day

We celebrated Naming Day this evening. It felt kind of awkward and not at all celebratory, probably because we were rushed and got out to the barn later than intended. Panama still enjoyed it, though.

Where's Mom going?

My rescue horse

To get the goodies, of course!

Treats for my horse

This was Panama's "cake" — a little bit of extra grain (he'd already had his usual amount for the day, and I didn't want to overdo it), a couple of apples from Aunt Jane, and a peppermint treat smile!

I gave him the goodies first so that we could get some good video footage before it got too dim, as the sun was going behind the houses. Then I groomed him. He was a bit antsy at first — no doubt excited about the change in routine, and wondering if I had more treats up my sleeve — but he finally relaxed and let me do my thing.

I did take some video footage, and I'm planning on making a video commemorating our first celebration of Naming Day — but not tonight, as I'm feeling quite tired right now!

Oh, he enjoyed them very much. :o) Thanks, Jane!

The video will be another day or two -- I'm putting it to music and everything. :o)
