Florida Horses

We drove down a white sandy road on our way to a trailhead and I took a few photos.

The horses were ahead of us and I took this through the windshield. (It’s the original unaltered, through the glass!)

And then we got out and walked around

to get a few photos of the barbed wire fence…

So pretty! Really nice photos. We see a lot of barbed wire fences in our neck of the plains!

Beautiful photos Diane. It looks like a gorgeous day to be riding, driving or walking in the countryside.

You have beautiful weather over there, just perfect to look over a fence on a lazy day. Have a wonderful weekend xx

Almost wants me to go for a ride on a horse again. I said ALMOST--I was thrown off a horse at the age of 10, felt like I would respect the right of the horses and not try again.
The pictures are really nice and what a beautiful day to be out and about.

Christine said...

Pretty pictures on a lovely day!
Enjoy!

I'd love to be out riding those horses. Do you ride?

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh I love horses, Diane, especially white horses! And there's something so nice about seeing a barbed wire fence out on a country road. Lovely pictures today.

Lovely photos! I so envy that lush green you have all about you in Florida, but it is coming our way - at last!

NanaDiana said...

Love days like that, Diane. I would be photographing raindrops here today- xo Diana

A lovely day to be out, for a ride! Wonderful fence scenes! Have a happy weekend!

Ida said...

What a lovely place to ride horses. I like the ring of wire wrapped around the pole on the barbed wire fence.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

I do love fence photos for some reason! Wonder what that means? Love the picture of the two riders (obviously,you have a cleaner windshield than I currently do!).

Musings from Kim K. said...

I was going to say the same thing as several others. Our windshield is nearly as clean as your own. Hee hee. When we traveled out west last summer, one of the highlights of the trip was horseback riding in the mountains of Colorado. I'd love to do that again with the girls. Happy soon to be weekend!

I want to live where it is green! It is still quite chilly here, in the 30's or 40's if we're lucky. I live by Lake Michigan, and we are always cooler by the lake (our 4th season).

Perfectly lovely shots -- and definitely points out what really surprised us about Florida the first time we arrived here six years ago -- it is really quite rural -- something I hadn't realized.

I used to ride my horse 6 days a week. I loved them (I had 2, one got too old to ride). I miss them both but now I'm too old to ride. Not really but I don't have my farm or horses. I still have all my riding gear though....saddles and all....never say never!
