It's no surprise to most people that my love of horses has been nothing short of an obsession. I have countless horse books I've collected over the years and about the same number of Breyer figurines. My living room and kitchen is decorated with horses; from figurine/statues, to pictures, to a giant fabric wall hanging.
I've never been lucky enough to own a horse but that hasn't stopped me from getting as close to as many as I can over the years.
These pictures were taken Christmas 1991, which would have put me at age 11. We had gone up to visit my Grandparents for Christmas and the neighbor, knowing my love of horses, invited me over for a little bit. The little paint filly was named Maggie but the name of the sorrel I rode escapes me.
