Elisa and I reminisced about my mom hitching up our Morgan mare Schera to our two-bench buggy many summer evenings for a ride in the fields with all the cousins. Jake is the same color, but much shorter. What a sweet life we've been given.
The owners of the farm used to own a resort and they would bring their guests to the farm to see the animals. One night a little boys, who was about five, was there with his mother. A fly landed on his hand and he said, "Mamma, what's that?" She replied, "That's a horsefly. You see, they have horses and so they also have horseflies." A while later a dragonfly flew near the little boy and he asked, "Mamma, what's that?" "That's a dragonfly," she answered. He looked at her with wonder and exclaimed, "Do they have dragons, too?!"
