My younger daughter, who just turned 9 a week ago, has been riding since she was about 5 years old. I thought her love for horses was a just a phase since girls go through their "my little pony" phase all the time. But, it was a love affair that's going really strong. She thinks everyone who's from Kentucky is really lucky. This is a painting of her when she was 6, titled "Waiting her turn", gouache 11"x14".
