Last week I spent a day in the horse country near Ocala, Florida. I visited a couple of farms and attended an auction where breeders sold their horses for between ten and thirty thousand dollars.

While watching the auction it struck me that the horses were a lot more beautiful than the people in that auditorium. I wondered, if the roles had been reversed and if the horses had been auctioning off the people, then probably there would have been no bidder.

Here are some pictures of the horses I saw. They are beautiful, and sweet too. All I needed was some carrots to become their friend.
