|I didn't even fake a new birthday picture....|
Turns out Gus gets a birthday bonus because according to the USEF, his birthday wasn't on March 29th, like I was told, but rather it will be on May 9th. Of course Gus made no mention of this when he got extra birthday treats on the 29th...
Extra birthday bonus? Gus wasn't born in 1997, looks like it was 1996. Mind you when I started considering taking him on he was "12." Then when I was mostly committed to him we found out he wasn't 12, he was 15, almost 16. But really he's 16 almost 17.
Frankly, aside from the whole DDFT thing, he looks pretty darn good for (almost) 17.
He continues to have a few students who love and adore him, and M2 just had her first official "lesson" this week so Gus is definitely staying busy and having fun.
A few more Gus shots from Supermom because Gus is cute and Supermom's pictures are fun..

|But careful, cause he kisses back...|
We have a schooling show in a week (on the 28th) and then a quick C show the 3rd-5th to get our butts in gear a bit before Prairie's big debut at an A in mid June....
Too many fun things.
