Dazzling Diva and Denim & Lace, Donna Andrews's horses
They don't come running, knock her down and lick her face, like Dino on The Flintstones, but when Donna Andrews returns from the LPGA tour to her farm, Serenity Stables, in Southern Pines, N.C., she can tell that her eight horses are happy to see her. "They know when mama's home," she says. "I can hear them whinnying as I pull up the driveway."
Andrews, who dislocated her right shoulder in a riding accident in July 1999, says that Damink, a nine-year-old Hanoverian, is her favorite. "She has a special attitude," says Andrews, who missed two months after her spill. "It's almost as if she's human."
For Andrews the horses are more than pets. They are business assets. Six of them are for sale (not Damink). While Andrews will be sad to see them go, she is proud of the way she has raised them. "I have the satisfaction of knowing that I gave them a good start," she said. "It's very fulfilling."
