My horses helped my daughter find a new friend

Yesterday, my husband, daughter and I were walking along the roadside of the pasture, when a lady from across the street and a few doors down asked if we owned the horses in the pasture, cause her daughters(ages 8 and 2) love to watch them and asked if it was ok to feed them carrots and apples and breads. We told her it was fine and chatted with her for a few minutes when the conversation turned to children and she said how her 8 year old daughter gets upset cause she never has anyone to play with. My daughter is 10 and is surrounded by boys and never has any girls to play with. Needless to say, they ride the same bus, go to the same school, but never have talked to each other. Now, they have played together all day today and my daughter is sleeping over there tonight. It is the first time she has ever slept away from home! I am going to be a nervous wreck, but I have never seen my daughter happier. All because of the horses and the fact that they look so beautiful and magestic!

I grew up a tomboy, and she is one too, but there are times that she says she gets sick of being around the boys cause when she wants to "fix" the toy animal, they are wanting to shoot it.
She is the one who I swear is going to end up being a vet, I am always finding her stuffed animals with toilet paper casts on the legs, paper cones of shame around their necks, or some sort of bandage. When I asked her what happened to it, it is always some amazing story.

My mom would never let me take my horse to my friends house who had a horse for overnight! We always had to meet halfway between the two houses when we wanted to ride the horses. I never understood why...

Just so y'all know, I wasn't joking. She really involves horses in sleep overs. But then again her and her friends aren't happy they have to take off their spurs to wear their boots to school.

Haha when I was about 7 there was a couple times my parents caught me riding down the driveway with my sleeping bag tied behind my saddle and my saddle bags full. I was heading to visit my cousins. They live about 6 hours from here! lol

LOL...thats something I would of done. My mom was would never let me take my horse somewhere for the night. She was always worried about what would happen if my mare broke the fence, ran off, got sick, etc. Even though she didn't want much to do with the horse, she loved her in her own way.
