Dolly the Horse

I think this A Day For Daisies image, Dolly, is so sweet. I'm not a horse person, but my bro and his family are. They moved to KY to be with the horses (for work). So this one will go to my SIL for her birthday, and it's only about 10 days late! That's not too bad for me.

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you are having a wonderful week.
