25th Birthday.. A special horse's special day




Last Friday, I was invited to Florestan I 's 25th birthday.
It was a really nice afternoon and the occasion celebrated in style.
Apples and carrots for the birthday boy (and bubbly for the two legged guests.)
Being a part of this was humbling, memorable and quite simply very special. I took my Eos and let it do the talking. Here is what it had to say.

Susanne Schmidt-Rimkus, Andrea Stricker, Herr&Frau Schulte-Boeker


Florestan was on fine form and looking amazing for his years.

Rheinlaender, born 1986, Bay, 170 cm



Press lens and pens captured the moment in pictures and words.



The first two Limited Edition Prints of my drawing "Holding On" were presented as gifts to his breeder Herr E. Schulte-Boecker and rider/groom Andrea Stricker (pictured here)



Sun + smiles + special equines= Perfect moment.
