Once again, with great pleasure, I turn this space over to my Mom. She really has a knack for words, plus she loves horses as I do, almost as much as she loves cooking great food for her family and for guests.  Even before she got interested in horses herself, she was always super-supportive of my own equine obsession. For that, I thank you, Mom!  Love ya'!Creating Beautiful Horse Manesby Sarah SandoriIn my household we spend much enjoyable time trying to figure out ways we can make ou [...]

Horse Manes The horse mane is where it's at, in my opinion.
