I tried to buy a healthy Birthday cake for Hobson without any luck so the closest I could find was a carrot cake. We lit the candles outside so that Hobson could share his Birthday with his horse brothers, Hallmark and Charlamayne and his horse sister, Khatalyst.
I had my work cut out for me with Misty who wanted to jump onto the table and devour Hobson’s cake. I did not realise the table needed a scrub after all the rain we've had but this did not end up happening.
Hallmark checked out Hobson’s photo, licked the cream off my plate and cleaned up Hobson’s and Misty’s bowls. He was not happy with me that I did not give him a piece of carrot cake.
We had a happy and peaceful time together. We went for a drive down to Natural Bridge in the Numinbah Valley in the afternoon. Misty had her head out of the window and pretty well barked non-stop because she knew she was in the country. Hobson was quiet, as usual, but when I asked him if he was alright, his tail did not stop wagging.
My boy has become frail in many ways but he is happy and I am so grateful that I can still care for him and love him and cherish him. His sister, Misty adores him. We are both very lucky to have Hobson in our lives .. my most precious, beautiful English Setter boy. xxxxxxxx
