One order of business was to feed my horses. We headed off in that general direction and I made Matt do a small detour to meet a neighbor:
I met this guy the other day when I drove past while he was having a party by himself. He was running and bucking with his skinny little tail in the air. I pulled over and he came charging to the fence. I thought I was going to die! But he stopped and took off in the other direction. My dog was barking like a mad man. The head of this big guy is the entire size of my 70lbs dog! He's huge! And cute! Today when we stopped he was much more composed and gentlemanly...
Then we were off to the barn to see my guys. Matt and I are members of EPNet. They frequently have these photography "challenges" and one of them was a photo a day with different words as the theme. One word they used was "whorl." People came up with some great shots. So that had me itching to get a shot of Ollie's wheat ear:
But alas, our personal challenge for the day was MUD because we have a lot of it in Kentucky:
|See the mud monger in there?|
And the barn mascots were looking on
|Everyone should get along like these two...|
The kids are right at home with the young horses
As I wrote earlier, I pass this farm everyday to feed my horses. And everyday I see this cute young and rare white thoroughbred.
Her name is Packed Snow and she is by The White Fox who passed away recently. She is his last foal and registered white.
After hanging out and chatting with the farm owners we called it a day. I think we did pretty well for a muddy day with our cameras. And where else but in central Kentucky would you get to see all the things we saw today. I love it!
