A Mother And A Daughter ;hare A Love For Horses Clara Davis and her thirteen-year-old daughter, Cheryl, have a wide choice of mounts, as the family owns six horses. Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Davis and their family came to the Stan Johnson ranch in the Skokomish valley in April of 1970, leaving a dairy farm near Chehalis. Mrs. Davis, born in North Dakota, came to Washington when she was 12 years old. She rode as a child, but has been away from horses for some time. Cheryl has been riding for four years. The Davises bought their first horse last spring. "Since then we've gone absolutely horse-crazy," laughs Clara. Cheryl's horse is "Banner" a Morgan-Arabian gelding; her mother rides an Appaloosa gelding, "Cheyenne"; her father's favorite is a big Appaloosa named "Nugget"; little Danny, who will be one year old on October 1 has been seated on the back of the Shetland, "Ginger" but cried up a storm when placed on a larger horse. "Shawnee" is an Appaloosa mare ridden by friends and family members alike; "Sol Star Deck" is a registered Quarter Horse who, according to Clara, may be ridden by anyone who wants a thrilling experience. "He's a lot of horse," she maintains. Brothers and sisters of Cheryl are no longer at home; therefor "Sol" and "Shawnee" will be sold. The 140 Holstein cattle owned by the Davises keep them busy. They have little time for organizations. "Our hobby is horses", Clara and Cheryl agree. Cheryl and her parents have enrolled in the Monday evening square dancing class currently sponsored by the Salty Sashayers in the fairgrounds hall. "We really like it," Clara enthused. "It's great fun and the people are so friendly." Cheryl, an eighth-grader in the Hood Canal School, writes for the school paper. She plans to participate in the Valley. Vacqueroes 4-H group headed by Mrs. Jim Hunter. The Play Day held in Dayton on September 19 saw Clara's debut in games. "I didn't do well," she says, "it was my first experience in gaming a horse and I was afraid to really let him out." She gamed "Cheyenne" and rode "Banner" in the western pleasure class. Cheryl rode Banner to the winning of second, fourth and fifth places in games. "My husband prefers Appaloosas," Clara states, "but cheryl and I just love horses."

"Can't we just say that the child has a protruding abdomen? She doesn't even know what marijuana is!" "At least," she continued dubiously, "I don't THINK she does."

My number two grandson, who is just learning to talk, is a young man of very few words. He brought into the house, carefully carried between cautious thumb and forefinger, an unresisting insect. "Dead bug," he announced to his mother, placing his prize upon the floor. "Oh, no!" said his mother as the released captive went into motion. "A LIVE bug!" The unsmiling small gentleman slowly raised a bare and pudgy foot which he brought down with firm deliberation on the hapless crawling creature. He then proceeded to deliver himself of his final speech for the day. "Dead bug." : 9 v /k BUT DIDN'T!
