They are in Kentucky? I am close to that. I am in TN. Strange to think they are that close. I don't know why thats so strange to me. i guess because I think of them as living in a far away land. Kentucky is big time horse country. If they were going to go anywhere in the US to look at horses it would be Kentucky!
