"There is something about the outside of a horse

...that is good for the inside of a man." Yes, Mr. Churchill, you were very correct. :^)  My cousin Laura and I headed out for Lexington KY this morning. We were at the Kentucky Horse Park pretty much all day, walking through the park seeing what there was to see, taking our own leisurely tour, petting horses, watching the shows. I warned her at the beginning that I was going to go all teeny-bopper goofy crazy on her when we got there. :^) That was ok with her. I've been to Kentucky before but not to the horse-park. I very clearly remember my very first visit to the Bluegrass state - I was 5 years old and we visited Spendthrift Farm. I think it was shortly after that (about 7 years old) that I decided to become a jockey....hehehe...yeah, that panned out really well for me at my now 5'9&something inches tall... was a fantastic time.
