Peaches

This is my filly, Peaches N' Cream. She was a gift from my in-laws, she is also my first horse;-)

 

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with horses. I read about them, thought about them, dreamt about them, etc. etc. My Grandpa knew how bad I wanted to be around horses and he paid for me to have riding lessons. I am so grateful to him and my Grandma for doing that for me. My siblings and I were blessed to have grandparents that did things that our parents could not.

 

I love my Grandpa, not because he paid for lessons but, because he saw that I loved something and helped me live a dream. He loves fully and deeply...even if he is a grumpy old man;-)

 

Grandpa use to take me to a restaurant named Peaches N' Cream. It was our favorite place. Peaches is named in his honor.

 

So, when my in-laws told me that I was the proud owner of this pretty palomino... I knew just what I would call her;-)
