Kids and dude ranch vacations go hand in hand. Whether it’s the freedom of being able to roam out of mom and dad’s sight without worry, or the genuine love that a horse gives a child, it’s just a great match. They can get dirty, and nobody minds. They can spend all day in the fresh air, and sleep hard at night. And, kids just seem to love horses. I believe horses love kids too. And, this is a big reason family dude ranch vacations continue to be a tradition for many folks.
I have had this sweet note sitting on my desk for weeks, and it makes me smile every time I see it. So, why not share it with all of you? If nothing else, it will make you smile. Or, it might remind you of more innocent times or a childhood memory, or a family vacation that made an impact on you.
In case you are wondering, Strawberry did write back. Our horses do have excellent personal assistants.
