Lon & Billie Thomas
Opening Day June 2nd, 2001
With fluttering ribbons and dainty flowers, Billiebom looks as if she just stepped off of a birthday cake - a sweet confection of a carousel horse.
That was what Billie Thomas had in mind when she adopted a horse - a simple, sweetly old-fashioned prancer that recalled the charming carousel from her own childhood days. She was inspired by the antique horses she had always admired.
Ribbons and a softly pleated saddle blanket lend a decidedly feminine touch. Bunnies nestled amid flower blossoms behind the saddle, and a blanket of childhood memories carry thoughts of springtime.
