Ky Horse Park - Then and Now

In 2004 when we took Beth to her first UK game in Lexington, we also made a stop at the Kentucky Horse Park that Sunday morning before heading home. She loved the statues and running free and getting her "horsey" (little stuffed horse she STILL sleeps with), but HATED the real horses and was terrified of them. This time around - 3 years later and with a little sister in tow - she LOVED them and even rode a pony! That's BIG, believe me! Of course, just like everything else that is different between the two siblings, Sarah LOVED the horses an she was just fascinated. It was like de ja vu - we did a quick tour of the park and then played on the playground and JUST LIKE IN 2004 - it was MELT DOWN time when we left the playground to go eat. Beth had the meltdown..not Sarah! MAJOR MELTDOWN! Sarah had a few tears, but she was just plain hungry!

So - take a trip down memory lane with me - Beth at the Horsepark 2004 vs. 2007....

And Beth vs. Sarah at Horse Park - each were exactly 18 months old when they went:

BETH:
SARAH:


Do you see a theme here? The PLAYGROUND? It was perhaps the highlight of the day! I wish both girls had been in a better mood to capture some GOOD pictures. We DID manage to get a FEW....


So, exactly how many HANDS tall are my girls? It appears that Beth is just a tad over 11 hands tall and Sarah...well....Sarah barely made the chart at 7 hands tall!
HEY LOOK - EVERYONE is SMILING!!!! (even the horse!)
I LOVE THIS PICTURE:
There are LOTS of other pictures I could post, but I'd bore you to death with pictures of beautiful horse and horse country and my beautiful daughters in the middle of the beautiful horse country! Okay....just one picture of pretty Kentucky horse country...

The rolling hills...the spralling white fences...totally Kentucky! Love it!

Looks like you guys had fun! I love the pic of 2004 and then the same shot now! So fun to compare! I have only been to Kentucky once. You are right...Very pretty!

Hi! I discovered this blog post while doing research for a design/layout I'm working on for the children's magazine called Children's Digest. I was looking for an image that showed horse "hands"/how to measure a horse, and the photos of your daughters are great for it! My editor is possibly interested in publishing one of the photographs. Can you e-mail me in response if you're interested? I can write more information then. eisrael@satevepost.org Thanks!
