Friday Fences - Horse Farms of Kentucky



When you travel through the central or Bluegrass Region (so named for the dark green grass that is commonly grown here--mature grass has a blue bloom spire) these dark brown or white painted wooden fences surround the thoroughbred horse farms where Kentucky Derby winners are bred and raised. This particular farm is on scenic Route 60 between Frankfort and Versailles. And yes, that's a horse barn not a fine home!

Friday Fences is a new meme hosted by my good blog friend Janis at Life According to Jan and Jer . Go there to sign up or check out the fences shared by other players.

I've seen some of those horse barns, and they do look like mansions. Very nice fence shot.

Gorgeous. I'm surprised the fences aren't made of gold. I'm sure those horses are treated like royalty.

Ebie said...

Living large! That's a mighty big farm house and hundred times multiplied by mine.

And the color of the fence is so neat!
