Unlikely – White Shire Horse for Weekly Photo Challenge


Wednesday’s WordPress Photo Challenge Unlikely allows me to share a few photos from this past Saturday’s  Minnesota Horse Expo 2018. I attend every year to enjoy the horse breeds I would otherwise never see.

2018 at the Minnesota Horse Expo gave me the unlikely opportunity to see a White Shire and Boulonnais horse among many other more familiar breeds of horses.

Top right and left middle: Louis’ the White Shire is a rare color in this breed of Draft horse as compared to a standard colored Shire horse above, which are black with white feathering over the hooves as seen here.

Mid Right: I have included the charming young Paint horse with his owner because he had a little bit of a curly coat that complemented his owner’s locks.

Top Left: The Boulonnais Horse – considered the most elegant draft horse – is: “Found in the Boulogne District of France, this breed is thought to come from the animals imported by Julius Caesar prior to invading Britain.” ~ The Equinest

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a happy day wherever you may be!
