Happy Birthday Quaker!

It's that time again, little buddy. Namely February 28th and the 9th anniversary of your birth ten years ago.

That was the day the Nisqually earthquake came to your mama's pasture and she decided it was time to lighten her load.

And you were born and aptly named --- Mountain Meadows Quaker 6.8.

Oh, the numbers? Never seen that in a horse's name? Well, not many horses are born right after an earthquake where some one noted the Richter Scale reading and added it to the baby horse's name.

Lucky you huh? You've always been my special little man. Hugs!

Great naming story -- better than any number of things he could have been called.

I agree with Penni...wonderful story on how he got his name! Happy B-day to the little guy!

That's the perfect name. He is just adorable. Just looking at him makes you want to give him a big hug.

What a sweet little guy. I had no idea that your state had experienced such a big quake--I'm off to find out more.

Happy Birthday, Little Quake Man. Much better name than "Crush."

Happy Birthday to Quaker! I bet his momma did want to lighten her load after that.... :0)

He is beautiful!
