Sisters start Cowgirl Candles


MCHENRY, N.D. — Working together, three young sisters who love horses have made and sold more than 100 soy candles to help finance their trips to rodeo competitions.

Each of the girls contributes to the Cowgirl Candles enterprise — Mackenzie Miller, 9, Ryleigh Miller, 8, and Kodie Miller, 6.

“We kind of thought it would be fun. We were bored this winter and they turned out so good, we thought ‘We could sell these,’” said Jenny Miller, who helps supervise her daughters’ work.
