This is Da'Lainey, otherwise known as Horse Girl.
She's my cousin Maura's daughter.
Maura, better known as Tootie around here, is the other cookie hound in the family.
We are serious about those nutmeg logs.
Tootie and Da'Lainey are also serious about their horses.
She decided at a very young age to become a business woman.
Following in her mother's footsteps, she has charted a course and has her future business already named.
This girl has dreams. More than dreams...she has plans.
She will tell you about them, too.
Ya think she was headed for the Derby in that pink hat?
She loves her horse, Harley.
Look at that composure.
She was so focused.
Waiting for their turn to compete.
Both of them patient and prepared.
I was so nervous that she'd fall off.
She'd worked long and hard for this competition.
So had her Mom and Dad. ; )
Little girl on a very big horse.
Harley is a gentle giant...a former race horse with an injury that left him unable to race.
Theirs is a very special relationship.
A horse that wears pink and zebra is much more entertaining than dressing up a Barbie.
The shoes aren't as sparkly, but having a zebra in the pasture is pretty cool.
They are some of my all time favorite photos.
Birthday girl and her horse.
This is a girl that's going somewhere.
I wonder where she'll take him next.
Thanks for stopping by~
