What is it with girls and horses? Especially 4 year old girls.
It seems like when girls are 3, it's all about their favorite princess. Then, as soon as they turn 4, the infatuation turns to horses.
And, if a princess can also ride a horse, that's even better. Especially if she can do it while wearing a ball gown.
Justin's mother adds fuel to the fire. She has already told her that she has a horse that is to be exclusively Maddie's. Her name is Grey Girl- yep, she's grey.
Maddie's hobbie horse is white. I bet you can guess what she named it. When she is playing cowgirl, Maddie randomly yells out, "Get over here, White Girl!!" I hope our neighbors don't think she's yelling at me. Or them.
Justin's parents raise and show Tennessee Walking horses. It just so happened that Maddie's papaw was showing in the ring on the weekend that they were keeping her.
Guess who was waiting for them, when he was done in the ring? Guess who wants a real horse? Guess who wants riding lessons?
Guess who got signed up for gymnastics lessons, in the hopes that she will forget about riding lessons?
