For early May I planned a video about Old Friends’ satellite location at Ashton Grove Senior Community near our main farm in Georgetown, Kentucky. We have 16 retired Thoroughbreds and one professional meeter-greeter miniature horse at Ashton Grove. Since that location isn’t currently part of our tour offerings, I’ll soon post a video showing what horses live there and saying a little about each of them. “Soon” is when I’ve got all the video clips needed, and when hard-working Laura has time to come to Ashton Grove and make current photos of the horses.

Meanwhile, a few mornings ago a heavy rain was coming on a strong wind. The light was too dim for shooting video, really, but when a wild wind blows and the smell of rain fills each gust, the horses get rambunctious. Their play session was so full of mischievous fun I had to capture it and share it with you.

This video, Old Friends Blog Visit 34, features one herd, 6 of the 17 horses Old Friends at Ashton Grove.

Their play session didn’t need narration, but I did overlay some text to identify each horse the first time each took over center-screen. So come feel the wind blow in a May rainstorm and join “the Ashton Six” in some horseplay. Who ever said retirees have to act like grownups all the time?
