fair warning

238/365: aisle closed


The horse shows – specifically the draft horse team competitions – are easily┬ámy top entertainment at the Minnesota State Fair. But it’s possible I love the behind-the-scenes part as much as the show itself.

I always wish I was a horse person, moving with familiar ease among the gentle giants. Braiding their manes with ribbons or just standing close enough to feel their awesome power and catch a good whiff of horse scent mingled with leather.

I always wish I was a horse person.

This photo doesn’t really do justice to how gorgeous or how gigantic these horses really are. But it may convey a bit of the thrill of being right up close to such gentle, magnificent creatures. Thanks to our friends on the Topp Farm for a beautiful day!
