White Horses

Some days you are just lucky. I had a day like that last weekend. My husband and I were driving to an apple orchard outside of town and came across this lovely sight. Three gorgeous white horses in a pasture.

My husband stopped the car and I got out to take some photos. The horses were not interested in me too much, I think they may be used to people stopping and taking their pictures. Only one raised his head to look at me and then they went back to their beautifully choreographed grazing.

I'll get to the apples next time, because I thought these gorgeous creatures deserved their own special post. I even found a nice poem to go along with today's theme.

White Horses

Let us ride white horses,
And pray the silver sand,
Beneath the hooves,
Hold us in high esteem,
And carry us loftily,
To mingle with the stars,
And dance on sunbeams,
Which tumble gracefully,
On a dusty wooden floor...


*** I hope you are enjoying your week.  I will be back in a few days with apples and maybe a recipe! Who knows! See you soon on your blogs!
