Frisky! Camera Critters Saturday and Sunday Meme

When we go to the races we visit the paddock to see the horses as they are prepared for each race. They're walked by their trainers, and then we see the jockeys in their colours as they ride out to the track and the post. This horse was very frisky and gave the trainers a very difficult time! A beauty, tho!

  1. Did he win? We made it out to the races a couple of times this year. I hit the superfecta, but it was only a 10 cent bet. I won $27.

  2. Is that horse smiling? He sure looks like it to me. Hope all goes well.

    I slept under a blanket last night. This has been the coldest July ever recorded here in Ohio where we live. And it was only 59 F here this morning. August is starting out to be more of the same. I fear a climate change is on the way and each year will disrupt the lives of more birds and butterflies to say nothing about the polar bears.

  8. I wanted to know if he won, too! When I was much younger, I would go to the track with my Dad. We always walked around looking at the horses. Such beautiful critters. Thanks for the photo and the memories!
