Ready to go to the races? The Spring Steeplechase was held here in Aiken this past Saturday, March 25th! I believe a lot of fun was had by all! Please click on the below image one time to be taken to this photograph in the gallery. You may need to click on it one more time after you are there to view all of the photographs within this gallery! Don't forget to look at the top right of the large photograph for a right arrow. This is for a slideshow! Get your popcorn, sit back, and take a gander.
"Oh what fun it is to ride..."
The Wells Fargo horse drawn carriage was recently at the Aiken Trials horse racing here in Aiken this past weekend. What a beautiful team of horses! The carriage was full of children getting a ride. Their laughter echoed in the air. Loved the older Boxer on top! More photographs to come of this wonderful event next week.
I was a bit mesmerized by the teeth of this equine below! He recently competed in the Harness Racing here in Aiken, SC. He was definitely NOT long in the tooth! Meaning, he was just a baby. A three year old I believe. I am use to seeing the huge teeth of my own horses, so this was a fun shot for me. You would never think of him as a baby though, for he was huge. His breed was Standardbred. He was incredibly handsome. Loved his whiskers!
A new gallery has been added. I attended the Standardbred / Harness Racing at McGhees Mile here in Aiken this past weekend. This kind of racing had been absent here in Aiken for several years and now is back up and running. The red track was a vision in itself! The dust from the pounding hooves filled the air. If you click on the below photo, you will be taken to the small gallery that I will continue to add photographs to. Enjoy.
This beautiful girl is named Hanna. She is a very powerful mare. You would never know it though with her longing eyes, soft muzzle, and upright ears. To me, she is soft as jelly.
I like how the white of her blaze that goes down her forehead comes to a sideways peak towards her one nostril. It almost makes her nose look a bit crooked. It isn't.
She is perfect. Just as God made her!
