Birthday Present


By the time you hit my age, wondering what you are going to get for a birthday present isn't really one of your major preoccupations. Yesterday was my birthday and to my delight when I woke in the morning one of my grooms was at the front door to tell me that my mare Stella had given birth to a foal earlier in the morning. Her son, Hilal, whose name means "new moon" peers out from the safety of his mother's legs.
