The 4th of a July in a Vineyard

I worked at the winery yesterday.

 I was grateful I brought my camera when I spotted this carriage. 

A woman and her daughter - and their horse, Dolly - were giving rides to customers around the vineyard. 







Modern horseshoes?



And then it was the staff's turn for a spin around the grounds...



...right at sunset.



Sigh.

I hope you had a great 4th of July!


P.S. Speaking of horses...I was chosen as a Featured Fifty Fine Artist at Huffington Post, thanks to "I See You". 

So once again, thanks for asking me to photograph your horses, Lisa!

  6. these are wonderful .. i wonder if those horse's shoes were to protect the cobblestones as much as to protect his hooves
