Getting the Fun Started:
Since she was born, Cookie has been obsessed with horses. She would spend hours reading books about horses, visiting horses at a local ranch, and collecting toy horses. She often played for many hours with her toys, having them trail ride throughout the house, under tables, and on top of sofa mountains.
Cookie got on YouTube and found other people who loved toy horses as much as she did. Since she had such a big imagination when playing with toys, she wanted to share her stories with other horse lovers on YouTube. So in 2007, out of randomness, she filmed and posted a story that she had only had played by herself in her room when she was younger. Soon she noticed other fans enjoying her stories and requesting more and more videos from her. So she posted more, and more.
