My Daddy bought me a horse!

Every girl's dream is to have a horse of their very own and my Daddy made that dream come true...and for that Dad, I thank you! Look at me...4 years old sitting atop my beloved Dandy Patch...the envy of all my friends. Now you may be thinking that I was a spoiled little brat whose Dad forked out a bundle of cash for this horse. You are WRONG!!! Will you believe me when I tell you that my Dad paid $2.00 for this dandy horse? True...he bought a raffle ticket from a friend and won this horse I'm sitting atop! I used this picture to make a card for my Dad for Father's Day. While talking to him on the phone, he reminded me what a crazy horse this was that bucked and wouldn't cross the railroad tracks near the stables. I didn't care...he was my horse...my Dad was a hero...and I'll forever be able to tell anyone that cares to listen, "My Dad's the best because he bought me a horse!" Happy Father's Day!

that is something really sweet!!! I think it's girls who are more attached to their dads than boys. But for every kid, their dad is surely a hero; they trust him to catch them every time he throws u up in the air...

Belated Father's Day wishes..

Huhhhhh?!! $2.00, wow, what a lucky ticket :)

I wish I had your dad, then I would have had a horse...oh well.
