CHAPTER TEN

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

All the Davis children were grown. Angel-Glory and Savannah were jockeys, who worked for Benny, along with Lilly and Brady's son, Shawn.

Isaac settled down, but his wife, Anna, didn't want kids right away. It took two years of convincing, but they finally gave birth to a daughter on the Fourth of July and named her Katy.

Andrew runs a therapeutic stable, along with his wife, Angela. They have twin daughters – Molly and Lana – who loved horses almost as much as their parents did.

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife
In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?

Mark, Hélène and their daughters are doing well. Both girls have expressed an interest in riding horses. They bought two ponies from Benny who turned out to be excellent mounts for the girls.

Hélène and Mark tried having more children once the girls were older. Hélène kept miscarrying, so they took it as a sign that the girls would be their only children.

How about love? How about love?
How about love? Measure in love.
Seasons of love. Seasons of love.

Maureen and Joanne's daughter, Elizabeth, fell head over heels for a redheaded, blue eyed girl named Felicity. Felicity loved horses as much as Elizabeth did, so once they finished high school, the two of them, including Trumpin' Charlie and Felicity's horse, Skye, moved into a ranch that was across the way from Benny's ranch.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Journeys to plan
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life
Of a woman or a man?

Joanne and Maureen were as happy as ever. After Elizabeth moved out, the two of them adopted Corgi sisters – Belle and Maple. They wanted more kids, but they didn't have the money, time or patience for one just yet.

They decided to be foster parents and if they liked the young teenager they fostered, then they would adopt him or her.

After living with the Johnson-Jefferson's for three years, Maureen and Joanne adopted a young girl named Sara. They loved her from the start and she loved them, too. She had long blond hair, hazel eyes and was as skinny as a rake.

Sara loved horses and eventually Maureen and Joanne bought her an Arabian gelding named Prince of Persia, otherwise known as Prince. Sara would be in the barn for hours, brushing his gray coat and telling him how much she loved him.

Sadly, when Sara was riding on a trail, Prince spooked and threw her. Sara hit her head on a rock and died instantly.

Maureen and Joanne founded Love Like Sara's – an organization that donated to helmets to kids who didn't have one. If Sara had been wearing a helmet when she fell off Prince, she would be alive today.

Sara was only twelve-years-old when she died.

In truths that she learned
Or in times that he cried
In bridges he burned
Or the way that she died

Roger and Melina were burned alive at their home. They were sleeping when the fire started and didn't get out in time.

Benny and Alison also died in their home. They were victims of a robbery. The robber got scared, shot Benny then shot Alison. The robber hasn't been caught.

It's time now to sing out
Though the story never ends
Let's celebrate, remember a
Year in the life of friends

As for the horses – CloudJumpinRainbow, Trumpin' Charlie and Lady Marmalade – they're doing well. All three are retired from racing and are enjoying the good life. Lady Marmalade's twins – Viva La Vie Boheme and Athena's Muse – were top racehorses.

Trumpin' Charlie was given to Liz – Maureen and Joanne's daughter when she was sixteen. Charlie was now sixteen-years-old and doing good. He's out of his bad mood, but is a kicker and biter.

Unfortunately, CloudJumpinRainbow died shortly after she delivered her first foal – a little colt. Benny named the little guy JumpinOverRainbowClouds. Shortly after Cloud was born, Benny assigned him a nurse mare – a tan Thoroughbred mare named Timber. Timber's own foal had died two months ago. Benny thought that the little black colt and the tan mare went well together.

Remember the love
Remember the love
Remember the love
Measure in love
Measure in love
Seasons of love

Oh, you've got to, got to remember the love

You know that love is a gift from up above
Share love, give love, spread love
Measure, measure your life in love
Measure your life in love

VIVA! LA VIE BOHEME!
