Dagne fell in love with horses when she was an infant. Paul and I were trying to get her to roll over for the first time. When we squeezed a stuffed horse toy and it whinnied, Dagne whipped her head around and rolled over to grab it.We kept thinking it was a phase — that she would move on to other interests. But she was obsessed. Every Halloween, she was a rodeo queen or cowgirl. Every toy request for Christmas involved horses. She drew horses, she played horses, and she studied horses. Eventually, her prayers turned to her parents giving her a pony and she got Taco.
She’s fast too. And she loves to play soccer.
Her other love is Africa. She longs to visit and perhaps work there. We’re so proud of her.
