We have some very dear friends of ours that have a team of beautiful Shires and a red shiny wagon!! When they asked us if we'd like to join them in the Rhododendron Parade, we jumped at the chance. We gathered up a "team" of our own and walked the parade route, passing out candy and "cop cards" and flyers!! We had a great time. We woke up to drizzling skies, but the wind blew off the cloud cover and the sun came out just enough to keep us warm and the horses cool.
Some of our wonderful campaign crew!! Thanks all!
I thought we looked amazing!! These horses are such professionals! The only thing that startled them was the clowns that we walked past!! I know just how they feel.....
We even had beautiful little girls and babies with plump rosey cheeks to kiss!
