A Day at the Races

Nothing moves me more than a moving horse.  Gracefully performing "dance" moves in dressage, figure eights and sliding stops in reining, or blasting out of the gate and barreling toward the finish line on a dirt track!  A perfectly designed horse, performing what it was perfectly designed to do .. a thing of beauty.

A spur-of-the-moment decision landed Steve and I at the Sam Houston Race Park , and to my great pleasure they were running the 2-year-old Quarter Horse time trials.  Many of these colts and fillies had never started, so it was alot of fun to guess who the better horses were.  We soooo stank at it!

I loved them all, of course, and left there filled with awe at the power of these babies .. all beautiful and fabulously fit! Running their hearts out on the track, then calmly standing for photos in the winner's circle

Good fun, Good eats, Good time!

What a lovely day!
