Happy birthday, sweet and gentle Saleem ❤ He is the cover horse on Surviving the Equestrian World, in case some of you missed that 🙂

But mostly, he is just downright fantastic.

Saleem had a son, Apocalipse, in 2010.

They have been best buddies ever since Apocalipse stopped being afraid of Saleem…

Saleem has given me countless sleepless nights with his headshaking, and his gentle soul. No doubt, he has been one of the hardest horses I have ever worked with, simply because he always tries so hard and because he is terrified of failing.

He has given me so much joy too, I don’t even know how to describe it. I have no idea where I’d be today without him and his son.

And he was the horse who at long last led me away from the competitive scene of the equestrian world. He was the horse who taught me to stop surviving, and start living.

Thank you, my beautiful Saleem. As your name implies, you are flawless.

At least to me ❤ And to Ablaze. He idolizes you. Can’t say I blame him.
