Why do girls like horses?..........by Joyce Oroz

My question for today is: do all girls love horses? Dah! Even my own personal survey says, yes, but it might be slanted since I was once a girl who loved horses. When I try to sort this out, it seems like with our cowboy—cowgirl history, it’s an American tradition to love horses. We grew up watching westerns. We grew up watching Dale Evans, and we passed the horse-loving gene to our daughters and granddaughters.

Dale Evans, the singing cowgirl, is an American icon, a woman who rode horses, sang with horses and inspired little girls with her movies and TV show. She was an author, a movie star, a singer a song-writer and an advocate for children.

Dale was born on Halloween, 1912 and died February 7, 2001. She married Roy Rogers in 1947 after working with him in movies for three years.
