Beautiful Horses.....Time in the Country


Over Memorial Day weekend we went to see family that lives a few hours away, and on the way there we went through country and Amish area ( we also took a little side trip to Trip To Amish Store, this is my Mom's post about it) 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So what is one of the most common things to see in Amish areas? Horse and buggy! There was an older gentleman riding in the uncovered buggy (Thankfully in this picture the horse blocked him from view or I couldn't have used it!) 


I have to say that seeing horses (and buggies, but mostly the horses! :) is one of my favorite things about travelling down that way! :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love how you can see all of the whiskers in the picture above! Who knew that horses had beards! lol :)  


A horse in a field of little yellow flowers? Yes please! :)




Anyone that knows me would know that this was a LOT of fun for me! (This was the first time taking pictures of horses with my new camera! AWESOME!!! :)

 Thanks for stopping by!

  9. We were in Amish country last summer and saw lots of horse and buggies. There is a large community near us too. So beautiful to watch them go by in all their simplicity.
