  1. I am reading Breakfast The Night Before for the third or fourth time! Thank you! I enjoy it very much, and feel that I am a kindred spirit. I am addicted to horses and buying them!
    I have 13 of my own, and have lived and breathed horses all of my life. I always have to sell a horse or two so that I can buy another! I blame my Irish horsetrader gene! Other than Fitzpatrick, there are Gleasons, and Murphys in my family tree. I spend my days carriage driving pairs as much as possible. Today I was ground driving a Friesian in the snow, getting her used to sleigh bells as I was wishing I was sleighing, but did not want to hitch and have an accident through not being prepared. Best wishes. Adrienne
