Paige on Harry, who hadn’t been saddled in a long time, Marilyn helping out.  Paige said she would need a “parachute” to get down!  Harry is a 17 hand horse (I guess that means he is tall!)

Peyton climbs the fence to given Harry some attention

We were invited to visit Marilyn, a dear friend of the Snyder family who lives with her horses (I think 7 of them) on a horse farm just minutes from Grandma Joyce.  I enjoyed my third visit there, and the girls their second.  They have been asking about going back ever since!  Thanks Marilyn for the lesson on horses, horse shoeing and the care of the horses.  It was a fun and educational experience!
