We visited the herd afterwards, and my horse-lover was in her element. This often-intense, shrill-voiced, high-maintenance little woman was as serene as can be.

The wonderful memories of her first horse (even though we'll tell the kids he's "ours", I can't help but think of him as "hers")?
Someday this photo will be a treasured memento of her first love.
