For some reason it seems like girls are enamored with horses. The dreams of riding and owning a horse are a subject of conversation in many a play group that has girls. I remember a particular school year when my son was the only boy in an art class of nine and one day he came home and exclaimed, “I don’t think I can take it any longer! I want to quit art class.”
I was surprised and asked, “What is it that you can’t take any more in there?”
“All of this talk about horses. That’s all they [the girls] think about!”
