This is Daisy’s mare, (and my niece) Barbie, hopefully in order of age progression. She turned 8 years old on Sunday.
Barbie is Murphy’s mom, for those just joining us. She needed to be retired early, but shines on: she is a wonderful mother. This is a mare you’d want to have a foal by. She was very strict with Murphy, saving humans a lot of work, which is probably partly why his manners have remained decent into the terrible two’s.
She’s one of my favorite horses of all time. I just love this horse. Barbie is an eye magnet. You can’t help but want to watch her. (Stare, produce cookies, groom, hug, massage, dream….)
Happy Birthday Barbie!
