Chris Mucklow Meyer, as always, captured some striking images recently at the Kentucky Horse Park. Chris is a very skilled photographer, her equine images are always gorgeous and her other work is exquisite. You can see more of her images on her Facebook page here. Rachel and I had a chance to meet Chris in person last summer when she was kind enough to adopt a kitten that came into our lives (we were friends on Facebook, having a lot of mutual acquaintances, so when I put out the call on my personal page, Chris answered!) . If memory serves me correctly, the kitten showed up at Rachel's Dad's family business and we sheltered the kitten for awhile in our garage but with a baby on the way, a new kitten was a non-starter for us. The kitten was christened Tiger Lily and she is a great companion for Chris's grandmother who lives with her and Chris is the caregiver. This is Tiger Lily happily at her new home shortly after dropping her off.
Chris lives near the Kentucky Horse Park which, not surprisingly, attracts quite a few Amish and other Plain visitors. It's a great, wholesome way to spend a day and with Amish lives being so tied in with horses, this is a popular destination. We visited the park several years ago with our neices and saw a large contingent of Old Order Amish on the grounds watching one of the shows. Below is an Old Order Amish woman at the park. Seems like she is participating in some sort of event. The young lady riding the horse is a conservative Mennonite from South Carolina, more about her in the weekly blogroll this week!
