This week Cee’s Black and White photo challenge is “the back of things”. This challenge could not have come at a better time. I went to the Canadian National Draft Horse Show and watched the horses being prepared for the six horse hitch. The amount of time and effort that goes into this is amazing. The grooming; the complex braiding weaving in colored ribbons, and then placing the decorative pieces into the braid, the braiding of the tails and adding the decorations, This is followed by the polishing of the massive hooves and then putting on the harness, all of it gleaming and polished. These horses weigh in at over 2000 pounds. But they stand patiently while being prepared for the show ring. Here are my photos in response to the Back of Things challenge.
