Very nice stables and paddock. I like the white fence and of course the horse. :-)

We know the white fences in Virginia from American movies! :-)

Very nice photo, Ryan! I like everything on it. It seems, that the horse has plenty of space to run. The houses look framed from the trees behind. And the trees in the foreground make a main point to rest the eyes and let them wander into the picture from there. The shadow of the tree looks like the reflction of the clouds! Very pretty indeed! Beautiful atmosphere! Greetings, May

Thanks, May! They have white fences in Virgina? What movies are you talking about? I don't think I've seen them. :-)

I don't know the name of this stable. There's a life-size bronze horse near the gate, but no name or mark. There were three or four other horses in the far paddock to the left. I tried to call this one closer, but he was very happy right there, thank you very much. For the photo, I like him right there though, more as part of the scenery. The buildings of which you can see the tops beyond the trees are part of Eureka, I think a church. I had no idea the stables or anything else was back here until I took this as an alternate route one day.

Greetings, Ryan

Well, Ryan, I just had this connection without being able to tell which movie or which series it might have been. Horses, white fences and Virginia always went together in my associations. Maybe Lassie or Black Beauty or Fury or some other. Anyway, the fences impressed me and they still do, we don't have them around here for Paddocks. They look very pretty!

Sometimes one discovers the nicest things in taking alternate routes. :-)

Greetings, May

Ah, I see. Associations like this can be very powerful, especially those from childhood, and it can be really difficult to pinpoint the source. I'm afraid that we'll have to resort to hypnotic regression to find the answer. Don't worry, it won't hurt a bit! Ryan

Yes, that's true, they are powerful! Well, I remember, you have already some practice in hypnotics. ;-)) But I wonder if it works this far! :-) Probably not even when you write the same text twice. :-)) Greetings, May

The same text twice? I don't know what you mean. Maybe you are already hypnotized, and are imagining things. Do you see two of anything else? ;-)

Greetings, Ryan

My computer is playing a little crazy, maybe that was the reason, why your text appeared twice. In some pictures I didn't see any texts at all, though I knew there had been some.

I'll have to look after my Mac (Apple) computer before he gives up alltogether. I have an old PC in reserve, in case. ;-)

Sorry, May, I was kidding with you! My internet is slow, and was claiming not to have posted my comment, so I closed the window and tried again. I didn't know it was there twice until you said something, then I deleted the extra one. :-D

Yes, you should keep your Mac happy so it keeps working.
