Costa said her son Wyatt is 6 years old.

"I work at Ironstone Veterinary Clinic in Boyertown," said Costa. "Lambert is one of Dr. Allen's dogs. He's a Spanish mastiff. He's so big he barely fit in my car."

"Lambert and his son guard the goats at Dr. Allen's farm, and the mother and his daughter guard the cattle,"saidCosta. "They're farm dogs and keep the predators out."

"We were going to my step-son's football game, and Lambert got the day off to come with us."

Pam Coath of Wayne, Pa., took these photos of Arielle Aharoni.

Arielle on Dutch times, approaching the last jump of the round, the jump many others had knocked rails down," said Coath. "You can see the anticipation on her face, and she jumped it clear, no problems! She and her horse Dutch Times mainly do eventing, and the show jumping has been new to them and they've been doing extremely well. I believe she was third."
