Gardenettes are mem- bers of District VI. Louisi- ana Garden Club Federa- tion, Inc. and Deep South Region, National Garden Clubs Inc. Creative Minds Writers Group prizes horse sense A familiar adage often quoted is "Good things come in small packages" - but sometimes good things come in giant packages that weigh over half a ton. Bonny Barry of Fol- som found her trea- sure on a horse rescue site. With only a grainy photo for reference, she took a chance adopting a half-starved, unwant- ed Clydesdale yearling - unwanted because he didn't look like the typi- cal Clydesdale. Little did she know that Clyde would blos- som and become a horse that attends charity functions and fundrais- ers, does skits, can box like Rocky, yet is a gentle giant to sick chil- dren. Bonny's friend Debo- rah Young has been in the horse world since she was 12-years-old in her native Missouri. She first met Bonny Barry in the late 1970's at a public stable in Metair- ie where she was board- ing her Arabian gelding. The two have remained friends and it was only natural that Young tells Clyde's story. After Young's retire- ment as school librar- ian, she lumped into the literary world by joining Creative Minds Writers Group of Pon- chatoula, crediting this group for helping her find resources that en- abled her to complete the story of Clyde in her new book, "Clyde, The- Neve r- Give -Up- Horse." "Creative Minds writ- ers are unique because they are such a diverse group of writers and are always ready to take a new writer under their wing," she said before adding that she is cur- rently working on a young adult novel that involves best friends, a special summer, and a stolen horse. Carousel Farms in Folsom is the home base for team Bonny and Clyde who contin- ue to do charity work throughout Louisiana. Bonny's involvement with EGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) pushed her to create "Equine Reflections." This charity is a non- profit that partners with other equine special- ists who have developed programs for children in need. Bonny also works with horse owners and gives private lessons. She can be reached at 985-373-7788. Deborah Young and her husband Bill live in Folsom where she breeds Dartmoor po- nies. For speaking and book signings she can be reached at 985-796- 9359.
