This is Maggie Black whom my granddaughter introduced me to. She is 14 years old and an awesome mare and Kate is just thrilled to have her very own horse. I am so happy for her. She is living out the dream I had when I was her age. What is it about little girls and horses? Maggie trots, cantors and jumps which to Kate's delight and accomplished horsemanship. So many afternoons are spent at the barn now that school is out. How they plan to move Maggie to Birmingham I'm not sure but they have already found a nice barn for her. Kate's cousin, Olivia, is visiting and she is a wonderful teacher for Kate and they share their love of horses. The weather here has been amazing....in the 50's at night. Tonight we will go out on the boat to watch fireworks over the water. Truly an American celebration complete with family, burgers, hot dogs and beer.
