Mandy and the Greats Part 2

By popular demand (lol) and a few specific requests, I am posting another batch of photos of Mandy and some of the great horses she has met over the years. Hope you enjoy. Next week it is back to Countdown to the Cup.

It was wise to keep your distance with Skip Away, but we were very close to him because of Sonny and Carolyn Hine
