Photos in this post were taken on Old Frankfort Pike, smack in the middle of some of the most beautiful Kentucky thoroughbred horse farms. These guys were grazing peacefully when they saw me at the fence and. . .
as if they heard "the meeting is about to begin" all five started straight for the fence where I was waiting with the camera.
Ready for the meeting!
They got really close and, as you can see, this one hadn't shaved that morning. :-)
Meet "Sweet Talker". I know that's his name because. . .
His name tag said so!
As with any other meeting, there was a lot to chew over.
Yet another gorgeous barn on Old Frankfort Pike, site of this meeting.
For more closeups from all over, or to enter your own macros, be sure to check out Lisa's Chaos here every Monday. And for photos and stories of charming barns go to Tricia's Bluff Area Daily . Hope our two lovely hosts won't mind my making one post do double duty this week. Busy time of year.
