Favourite Photos–2017

The WordPress Challenge this week is to show our most meaningful photo or photos from 2017. So here are mine:

The first is from London in June and the rehearsal of the Trooping of the Colour.  I love this photo of the mounted band heading up the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.  I have this photo as my screen saver on my pc and every time I look at it I marvel at the stunning whiteness of the Drum horse’s white feathers.

Next is a detail photo of the braiding of the Percheron horses competing in the six horse hitch at the Royal Horse Show in November.

Finally  a photo that may be my absolute favourite, taken with my phone during the summer. One day my daughter and grandson came to visit and I snapped this photo of  them with my horse Biasini. My grandson is delighted with the “horsey” and Biasini’s look says: “I’m being patient because I know this is a very small human”!IMG_20170707_1559245

      The amazing thing is Biasini is quite different when he is around little people. He does not move quickly and really looks after them. My grandson is very excited about “horseys”. Thanks for your comment.
