Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills.

Friday Fences - More from a Kentucky Horse Farm

 

Here's a "long" view of the fence surrounding a horse farm just outside Louisville--see the farm in the previous post that I shared for this week's Barn Charm meme. This fence says "Kentucky horse farm" with its combo of stained wood fencing and stone walls. And, while we're thinking horses--and racing--good luck to I'll Have Another and cool young jockey Mario Gutierrez in their run for the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes tomorrow. It feels like the year for some history making.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by Summit Musings to visit and leave comments.  I've been distracted with some things this week and haven't been able to return the favor.  For sure I'll do so over the weekend.

I really like your long view of the fence. It's too bad about I'll Have Another, but I hope you have a great weekend.

I've always dreamt of visiting a Kentucky horse farm. Such incredibly beautiful places, and those horses...

The horse farms in Kentucky are lovely. Too bad that I'll Have Another did not get to run in the Belmont Stakes, but he should have a good life.
