My little granddaughter has a thing for Maximus.
She adores him and wishes he was her horse.
So imagine her delight to find so many Maximus's
on the merry-go-round at the OC boardwalk.
It didn't matter what color they were
there were definitely horses that were Maximus
and ones that weren't.
I've seldom seen such pure delight on a little face
as she rode those beautiful steeds.
After each ride
she would stroke their muzzle
and thank them for the fine time.
But the best part were the "whinnies"-
big loud whinnies exploding from her little mouth
over and over as she rode,
completely unconcerned about anyone listening,
so absorbed was she in her joy!!!!
I love this little person.
