…..and then there are the grandchildren’s requests… well you know!



Today was the 140th running of the Kentucky derby~ Did you wear your fancy hat? And did you have a Mint Julep? Well it was won by California Chrome~ owned by a couple from Yuba City, California. Yuba city is about 2 hours south of us.


I have never been much into horses, but lately they are intriguing.

Our daughter in law to be loves horses. She is a barrel racer and  she also  trains them.

She has about 5 or 6 now and she trains them and gets them in shape for barrel racing.

    I think horses are beautiful! Love your flowers and your Americana decor. Happy Anniversary to your daughter and hubby. hugs, Lecia

  2. What a beautiful beast she is selling!! Lover of horses all my life. Have a friend whose daughter does dressage and I love seeing the grace and connection between horse and rider. You have a beautiful family and as usual I loved your pictures. BTW I was pulling for Calif Chrome as I loved the story behind it

  3. Wow that is a Beautiful horse ~ I would have a hard time letting him go.
    Beautiful decor ~ I always love to see your decor!
