Small, small world

We had some drive up guests the other day, a man from Colorado with his 13 year old son, and his mother from New Hampshire. Shortly after they arrived, we started to chat, and found that Susan, the mother, has horses and drives.  After a few more minutes of chatting, we realized that we have a mutual friend in NH.

After just another minute or so, Susan's face suddenly lit up, and she looked at Tom, and said, "I know had bouncy shafts but won anyway at Lorenzo!"  She then described Shawn, the horse, Tom's turnout, and a few other details from that show, which showed that she was who she said she was, even though Tom didn't remember the bouncy shafts!

We then proceeded to bore her son and grandson while we relived the glory days of Tom's driving, and developed a long list of mutual acquaintances, human and equine.

You never know whom you will meet at Moonracer Farm!
