New day old photo
Well I’m kind of slacking…I haven’t had much of a chance to get out and take more pictures so I’m going to upload an old one. I was working today and my son usually goes with me to work so it usually takes a lot longer to get things done 🙂
So here is a photo I took spring of last year at a harness racing farm (Ruddick Stables) in Scipio, IN. This little colt was very curious and alert. There is a difference between trotting horses and pacing horses if you know anything at all about harness racing. First off the goal in harness racing is to get your horse to trot/pace a mile under 2 minutes. That may not sound hard but you get points against you if your horse goes into a gallop. And then there are trotters and pacers. Trotters trot at a diagonal….with 2 legs hitting the ground at once diagonally from each other. Pacers pace on the same side….so that is 2 legs on the same side hitting the ground. Kind of like a train.
