Gifts for my 25 wedding anniversary (to the same man). My beloved horse, Jackpot (it's also his birthday).  'Apple Blossom' Amarillus with their cheerful blooms. Life is good. Sigh.

Congratulations Marian on your 25 years. Now did Jackpot eat the flowers?

Congratulations!  25 years is a real accomplishment.  That's cool that Jackpot's birthday is on your anniversary - was he an anniversary gift at some time?

Thanks Everyone!

Missy, Jackpot got lots & I mean lots of horse cookies for his big day. I can't wait until he's all shed out & is shiney again. 'Won't be long now.

Patricia, I think that they are both beautiful too!

Andrea, I love Jackpot to bits! I handle him using natural horsemanship. He was an uptight showhorse when I got him.  He is now relaxed & as sweet as a puppy-dog! My Dad gave me (& my 8 siblings each an amarillus plant). I now have 12 in many different colors. 2 more are ready to bloom as I write this.

 Mike, I was looking for a new horse. I reviewed 25 CDs & saw Jackpot. I had to fly to Nova Scotia, Canada to meet him. I discovered that my anniversary & his Bday were the same date. Poetic, don't you think?! I waited 10 years for this horse (of course, my husband had to wait 5 years for me!)

Jackie, Jackpot is "cute", although he weighs 1,750 lbs!!!!! He's like 2 horses in one.

I have to disagree with Rochelle's comment above mine. Jackpot and the amaryllis both are stunning, and both are beautiful.

Congratulations on #25!

What a beauty your Jackpot is.  Do you board him or have him at home?  I didn't think off Ann Arbor as being "ranch country"?  I envy you if you do have a big country property.

Congratulations (a bit late)!  We are in a class of our own, us "long time marrieds", (to the same man), I'm coming up on 35 years this summer.  Beautiful horse, looks like it was worth the wait!
