Pony and Trap, Tete a Tete and Christmas Lights

15 Dec

Is this a pony and trap? Whatever, it was fun to watch the pattern of the hooves change as we followed this vehicle on the road to Truro.I’m hoping that those who know will tell me about the foot pattern and if it is a pony or a horse!

We went to visit some very old friends this afternoon. They have known me since I was a little girl and were very good friends of my parents. We love hearing their stories, this time of C’s early life in America and on the farm in Townshend. We took along some cheery Tete a Tete bulbs in flower and some of my mini mince pies.

Truro’s lights are simple and lovely as always.

    Listen to the beat!! 🙂 Two beat for trot, three beat for canter, four beat for gallop. If fore & hind feet on same side hit the ground at the same time it would be a Pacer.

      Thank you! I knew you would know! We couldn’t hear, sadly but will open the windows next time! Thanks again. 🙂

      That is so lovely of you to say that. Finding my three things every day helps to keep me positive in the midst of sad world news. All the very best to you. 🙂

    The horse is trotting in the picture with opposite hooves off the ground. I don’t think they have trotting races with ponies, so I’m assuming it’s a horse…

      Thank you! Is it a canter when all feet are off the ground for a moment? 🙂

        That’s a gallop. A canter is slower.

            You’re welcome. I used to be very much into horsey things. 😉

    How lovely are your photos of the horse and trap! Tete a Tete bulbs in flower and mini mince pies, sound like the perfect gift. 🙂

    In the states it’s called a sulky, I’m not sure what it is called Truro, love the gorgeous daffodils.
