When Laura came to the farm to give Bint Marscay a Tuesday evening bath, she almost didn’t bring her camera. It’s a good thing she did. As we trundled around in the golf cart looking for something interesting for Laura to photograph in the light of a beautiful sunset, we paused to visit with Sun King awhile. Always a horse with a sense of occasion, Sun King saw our attention as an opportunity to turn a quiet evening into PARTY TIME!
Hm…do I feel the spirit move me?
Oh yeah, I think I do.
Come on in, the paddock’s cool!
What else could it be, with all this wind I’m making?
Hey Kentucky Horse Park, come measure the length of my stride!
I am the King of Horses!
My mane and tail are flame!!!
Look here, all you young Breeders’ Cup hopefuls! See how it’s done!
There. Did ya see that? Did ya?
Whoop! One more time!
Taa-daa!!! (As Ide, who can see perfectly well through his fly mask, looks on and applauds.)
