Poor Eight Belles! I didn't post this on Saturday after the Kentucky Derby because it was just so sad. Having owned horses almost all my life up until 5 yrs. ago, I know how the trainer and owners of this beautiful filly must have felt. I had to put my horse down when I was 15 years old because she broke her back and it was one of the toughest things I've had to deal with in my life. Everyone take a moment to think about this beautiful creature!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
