“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”
I couldn’t resist posting this photo in response to Sue’s Word-A-Week Challenge “curves”. I captured the shot on our recent trip through Lexington, Kentucky where it’s truly all about the horses. Although I took many shots of the beautiful racehorses in their pastures, along with the incredible scenery, the curves in the backs of these guys made it to my top of my favorites of the trip. Here are some of the others for those who’d like a bit more!
“Horses make a landscape look beautiful.” Alice Walker
“A horse is a beautiful animal, perhaps most remarkable because it moves as if it always hears music.”
“A horse who bears himself proudly is a thing of such beauty and astonishment that he attracts the eyes of all beholders.”
The final horse farm I shot was obviously a home for some mares who had seen better days. As I reached out to stroke this one’s lovely face, I was shocked (quite literally!) to find that the fence around the pasture was electrified. Fortunately, no harm done other than to my psyche!
In closing, I offer a pastoral scene that conveys the peaceful beauty of the countryside all around.
