Horses have been the theme at our home recently. My six year old is smitten with all manner of horses and we are very fortunate, in her mind, to have numerous opportunities to spot them on Concord and Carlisle farms that abut local roads. This Palomino beauty was our latest chance to opine about the virtues of having a horse in the same way one might discuss a goldfish or cat. For now, thankfully, keeping a sharp eye out through the car window, “collecting” Concord and Carlisle horses as she spots them is enough!
This particular animal seems well-accustomed to roadside visitors, perhaps because it lodges just down the street from Henry David Thoreau’s newly renovated birthplace.
