There's romance to Kate, the pretty mare who bears a bounty of flowers, a quilted saddle blanket, and a sweet love story. When Frank Schomus decided to adopt a carousel horse as a tribute to his late wife, Mary Catherine, he asked that the design be filled with small reminders of her. From the tidy bouquets of her favorite flowers, to a saddle blanket quilted in delicate hues, the horse would warr beloved reminders of his wife, who died in 1996 after 51 years of marriage.
