another pic because....why not? she's just too cute.

Amelie Fira LOVED horses. We had her on a horse as a baby, and she just smiled and smiled...never wanting to get down. We took her see horses often. One particularly memorable time was the one above. This horse was named 'Maximus' or, as Amelie would say, "maxthimuth!"

I often dreamed of getting her, one fine day, her very own horse. I knew we'd be spending a lot of time with our adopted Texas family over the years...and I had these visions of her grooming, riding, talking to her own pony, with her Texas cousins, being a little country girl. They calmed her wild spirit.
