Re: Blinded Horses ..

Sleek, well fed horses against a richly colored background. This shot reminds me a bit of the old postcards from the 30s and 40s with images commemorating the classic spring horse races - the Kentucky Derby, the Belmont Stakes, the Preakness. Have no idea why they would have blinkers on in the grazing field, unless it would be to get them used to the things. Some horses supposedly run better in them, but if they don't like them, they can become more hindrance than help.

Nice horses, why they are sometimes blindfolded in the meadow is a riddle to me!

Has there been any news of Don lately or has he been completely forgotten?
