This motorcade is taking a 20 year old Marine on his final ride home. Brandon Lara was killed in action in Iraq last week. Our kids of the Comal County Mounted Sheriffs Posse were there to show their support and love to the family of this fallen hero. The kids in this photo range from about 9 to 15 years of age and they did us of all very proud.
Kirstin was very honored to be carrying the American Flag on this particular day. She was chosen because her father is active duty Air Force. Today hit her & her sister unusually hard. It brought to reality what their father does for a living. Trigger is normally a very dancy, prancy type of horse who hates to stand still, but not today he stood perfectly still with so much pride showing on his face-he knew what he was tasked to do.
Later that evening Kirstin does a little work with Tuff. She was circle driving him and had him jumping the barrells.
Just look at that form. Tuff loves to jump barrells.
