On Saturday, everything changed and she trailered to town for a par-tay.

She was an invited guest at a western-themed wedding day brunch.

The mini-horse found herself in the middle of one of Amarillo’s most lush backyards.

Miss Peanut didn’t stand idle for long. She had important people to meet and photo-opportunities needing her special paint-horse western flair.

We had a blast being with the bride/groom and the entire gathering of family and friends. A lovely and memorable day, indeed.

Hope you have cause for celebration this week.

Knee-deep in green grass love to all.
