That's a lovely find! Cities really suffer the lack of animals, and the sense of peace that comes from being near them.

Poor horses, fenced in for sure. Lovely and unexpected to see them, though.

"A backyard treasure island." Nice. Great capture.

Brian Miller said...

its pretty cool to find these little hidden places in the city...i wonder the impact on horses keeping them in the city....with air quality and all...

What a delightful discovery!

Mystic_Mom said...

Very neat to have found them...an oasis!

Ella said...

ooh, I love the treasured view!
Great way to define it:
treasure island :D
Love this!

Peggy said...

This made me smile Laurie. I have grown so used to cities with 50 by 100-foot lots that I almost forget that other cities might actually have room for horses!

Horses represent magic, healing, strength, mystery for so many ... to see them up close ~ truly amazing!!!

With few words you conveyed an entire scene, masterfully. And you made me want to walk that path and see them for myself.

Love this...When everything is shouting urban it is nice to find a bit of the country.

Teresa said...

What a way to decribe that little bit of country within the city! Beautiful!

Margaret said...

A treasure for the viewer... but the photo seems to say "they don't belong"...

So nice to find that little country oasis in the midst of the city. Very nice!
