    Here is a note from my mom, Kathy Mettler, about the photo:

    She (Chick) and and her husband Zeke were really nice people. My Dad worked with him at Boeing. They worked out a deal where we would take a horse and her colt off his hands and when the colt was old enough to separate we could keep the mare. That was Frosty, a work horse looking gal who was good with kids and easy to ride. We enjoyed her as did the city cousins for years.
