On Thursday while I was in Kentucky, I got a chance to break away from the dog show and go to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. It was a beautiful day and I enjoyed myself a lot. I did take quite a few pictures, so bear with me!
The great Man O' War monument.
In the parade of breeds...these are the Friesians. She is driving the first horse and riding the second.
The Draft horses. They also took you on a wagon ride around the park.
In the Hall of Champion presentation this is Western Dreamer.
For the first Parade of Breed presentation they did examples of events that will be held in Sept. at the World games the park is hosting for the first time outside of Europe. This was the dressage demo.
The group shot at 8 weeks old. It is extremely hard to get anyone to hold still at this age, so I was pretty impressed we at least got them all to look forward in one spot! Three of the puppies are leaving this weekend, one more leaves next weekend. I still have two boys without homes. One of them is a favorite in the litter and I keep telling myself, "no, you cannot keep another boy!"
This is blue merle boy #2. He is a promising puppy with tons of attitude!
Here is blue merle boy #1. He is ready to anything. Loves attention. I think he could finish as well, but really that isn't a priority.
Checkers, blue merle boy #2 and then #1 (from left to right). Such pretty expressions!
