Chatham Hall Horses

Horses at Chatham Hall.  This is an all girl's boarding school in Chatham, Virginia, which has an equestrian program.  I was there with my girls for a "Colt Staring" competition over the weekend. 

The photo below is for "The Creative Exchange".  I waited and waited for that third horse to show up, but I guess it was too interested in its food.

I have been "on the road" and didn't have much time to participate in this past weekend's poetry challenges, let alone visit my favorite blogs.  Sigh... how does life get SO busy!  And today I have to get my driver's license renewed as it expires tomorrow - let's hope I pass the written test that I haven't studied for.  How long do you imagine I will have to wait in line... I just hate how the government runs these places... understaffed and so slow...  Wish me luck and patience.

Hmmmm, Margaret....maybe you could just give up the license and ride a horse????? Good luck!

Just renewed my license and had to stand in line for 2 hours-good luck! Beautiful horses-the third picture is great just as it is but would have been totally amazing (and an act of God) if you could have had a third horse looking out of the stall in the same direction as the other two. Don't get too busy so that you aren't enjoying what you are doing--gotta find that elusive "happy medium". Have a great week, Margaret. Mickie :)

These are wonderful photographs Margaret, especially the last one. I love the way you composed it. Hope everything went well with your driver's license, and that it was not an all-day event!

Thank you so much for sharing at The Creative Exchange today.

Have a great evening!


P.S. Make sure to get in some "me" time!

Life does tend to move at warp speed, doesn't it. These are such fun photos! Horses are such magnificent creatures.
