Looking at the timestamps on my photos, and at the clock in pictures of the château, I think I've figured out that the Thursday afternoon show at the Haras du Pin in lower Normandy lasted about three hours. Every minute of it was enjoyable, even when big raindrops started hitting us and the horses. I guess I don't have a lot to say about it, but I do want to share the photos. It was exciting to be so close to such big, impressive animals.
I warn you; I have a lot of pictures of horses and buggies — more than 200. Don't worry. I won't post them all. Just for the record, my camera that day was a Panasonic Lumix ZS1. I still have it but it doesn't get much use these days.
