11.  I love that he raced.
12.  I love that he barely placed.

13.  I love his pedigree.

17.  I love his stupid, arthritic limbs.
18.  I love everything about him.

Thank you for all of your participation in this bloghop, dedicated to my old man's birthday.  Only other horse lovers could really appreciate the drive to celebrate something as silly as when my horse was born.  :)

I'll do a wrap up next week.
