In Amish country I turned into a giddy teenage girl. Why? Because there were HORSES all over the place!!!!!! Like any teenage girl I LOVED horses. This was like a dream come true.
This big feller was posing by the fence just for me.
We went to a petting zoo and this was the view across the street. Looks like this mare is the babysitter for all the young colts.
This little one was looking the other way when all of his classmates went to the barn.
Wait for me!!!!!
This big feller is Big Ben. He is the biggest horse in Holmes County Oh. To put that into perspective, that lady was taller than I was. They would feed him ice cream cones.
Here was the plack in front of his stall. He is 1 1/2 tons!!!! Here it says his height is 19.3 hands. If you don't know anything about horse measuring, a hand is 4 inches. So if you figure that up, he is 6 1/2 feet tall at the shoulders! That's where they measure the horse.
And then while we where driving around, we saw this stunner. Isn't he beautiful!!!! He was just standing there just like that as we drove by. We even turned around and drove back to get his picture. I think he was posing for us too. LOL
I have other pictures of horses but I'm gonna leave them for another post. They do come in different colors. lol
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, giddy!
