Mary is in LOVE!
Mary is absolutely IN LOVE with horses. She even asked me when she could "muck out a horse stall." -now that's love! (or maybe a little psychotic) I mean good grief! I love my babies, but not once did I ever look into that sweet, little, round baby face and say, "Sweetie, when are you going to do a big 'dookie' so I can change you?"
When she first started talking about horses, I thought it was just a phase that would go away.
A wise, seasoned mother told me. "Girls go through these stages. First, they love horses, and then....it will be boys."
We immediately signed her up for lessons. She'll be riding until she's 50.
