Congratulations! You’re in on the ground floor, so to speak.
Welcome to The Horsey Set.Net. (Don’t forget the dot net. Very Important.) We’re going to have a great time here as we celebrate horses and their impact upon our culture. Check out the About page, too. So far, this post and that are all there is. For now. 🙂
I photographed the horse above at the Kentucky Horse Park. I think he thought I had treats.
He and his pals back there are Friesians, an ancient Dutch breed that’s heavy enough to carry knights in armor but graceful enough for modern dressage. We see Friesians in many movies from Ladyhawke to 300. They’re recognizable by their size, usually solid black color and the long feathered hair above their hooves.
Famous owners of Friesians are Martha Stewart and the family of Aerosmith’s Joe Perry.
