Happy Birthday Daatje!!!

Well, it was yesterday, but better late than never!  On 2/28/2001, little Daatje was born to a 4 year old mare named Sientje vd Wildenburg.  She came out curly haired all over with her left ear folded over her forelock.  Such a precious little thing she was!  You can see photos of her as a baby here.

So hard to believe that was 11 years ago.  She's grown so much!

I managed to get in a nice ride a couple of weeks ago and my brother took some photos.  I'll post about that later.  This winter has been lacking wonderfully in the snow department so the footing in the field is actually pretty decent!

That's all about the change though, we're supposed to be getting 10+ inches of snow tonight!!!  Stay tuned for the next post about our winter dressage practice........
