To celebrate the event, I baked Mad for Smarty some delicious homemade horse treats. This was my first attempt making baked goods for a horse, and I think it they turned out pretty well (Smarty's seemed to think so, at least!). I used plenty of oats, molasses and peppermint. My pony loved them!
Smarty's also got a few special birthday carrots, the ones with the green stems still on top. He gobbled those up, too.
Mad for Smarty was feeling good today. He was jumping and playing just a bit on the lead while I was hand grazing him. All of the horses at Bel Canto are pleased that spring is here and the green grass is coming up.
