Macro Monday and Barn Charm - Call a Meeting

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.

Sweet Talker seems to fit him, too! heheheee
I always love it when horses are included in the shots for Barn Charm!
Kentuckians know what they're doin when it comes to horse barns... elaborate & exquisite to say the least! What beauties!!!
I've seen in a couple of Florida blogs that Ocala, Florida is the horse capital of the world, but I'm having a hard time believing that with Kentucky in mind! What say you?

Thanks a million for joining =)))

WOzers! That is a nice farm. I think those horses were waiting for the apple handouts. At least they were cooperative and liked having their photo taken!
