Sarah was to train horses and riders for Jamie Kreuz at Bryn Mawr Farms outside Philadelphia. I was to work for the Insurance Company of North America in Philadelphia and help Sarah on weekends.

Jamie picked us up at the airport, but by the time we reached the farm we were in the midst of a snowstorm and a power outage. Our first night was spent in total darkness. It was perhaps merciful that we could not see the mess.

:lol: Well this is no holiday. I bet the horses were better off than the grooms. Can't wait to read the rest. The horse drawn by Rosemary really makes me wonder what comes next. Brave girl to leave home and go into the unknown. Well done Deirdre.
