Right time, right place

By Kylene Scott

Right time, right place

Horses and people find their way into one another's lives right in the nick of time.

By Kylene Scott

Sometimes horses come into people's lives at the right time; other times the horses find the people they need to be with. For Everett and Rochelle Miller of Scott City, Kan., both cases are true.

Everett Miller grew up on a "dirt farm" near Scott City, and since the beginning has always had horses around. Rochelle, on the other hand, didn't get her first horse until she was 29. The Millers now operate Flying M Ranch where they raise and train quarter horses.
