Wordless Wednesday: Horsin' Around

This picture was taken in D.C. at the Caisson Stables
I told a joke and he laughed... someone's gotta laugh at my jokes. ;)
Did You Know? These 'white/gray' Caisson horses used to be black.
Their coats transition over time. Cool, right?

This is awesome! My sister used to ride horses a few years ago and I used to love to go watch her jump! It was hard for me to go though because I found out I'm allergic to hay while I was at her stables.. needless to say I had to sit in the car the rest of the time
