    Tossing It Out

  7. What Arlee said. I was nuts for horses in elementary and junior high, then gymnastics took over. I had no clue that there were so many breeds. I'm just now making my way around visiting from the AZ. Shannon @ The Warrior Muse and I are joining forces in another challenge. We're going to visit and comment at each of the participants, starting with the reflections post. We hope you'll join us!
