Adoptive family: Minnie Weaver and Joy Sherry

My story:  Toyo was Tom Sherry’s horse, the quarter horse he took into the hills whenever he could. Tom’s mother, Minnie Weaver, and his wife, Joy Sherry, decided to outfit the carousel horse as he was rigged when he carried Tom on his trips into the woods. Tom’s initial’s T.E.S. are carved into Toyo’s saddlebags. Tom died in January 1991 and Toyo the carousel horse carries his memories.
