Kids, Pets & More, Amber

Beth Diamond of Lincoln University, Pa., took this photo.

"This cell phone photo is of Kristin Schlachter who competed her thoroughbred, Knockout Kick, this past September in the All Thoroughbred Horse Show held at Fair Hil," she said. "After she competed she had her niece, Amber Selke, enter in their Lead Line class. Amber is in second grade and was one very happy little girl to have had the opportunity to be aboard an off-the-track thoroughbred."

Flamingos by Sue Wiseman

Sue Wiseman of Boyertown, Pa., took these photos.

"I took these pictures at Salina Di Jan Kok in Curacao," she said. "It’s a salt flat that will flood and is a natural breeding ground for shrimp which is a Flamingo paradise. Both the Salt Flats and the Flamingo’s are protected. They were so beautiful to see in the wild. Notice the white flamingo in the middle, (in the bottom picture) he hasn’t eaten enough shrimp to turn his feathers pink!!

Pelicans in Curacao by Sue Wiseman

Who’s Who??
Who’s the Skipper? Who is the First Mate? But most importantly, Who is the Captain of this boat?? Spotted these Brown Pelicans while visiting Curacao. There were many boats at this dock but only one boat with pelicans in it!! The 3 of them all seemed to be enjoying some much needed sleep.

While touring another section of Curacao, we stop at an animal rescue center. The property was patrolled by this beautiful peacock. He was the perfect tourgiude, after strutting around the parking lot he lead everyone to the entryway of the rescue center.

Drying Off
Snapped this photo of a Brown Pelican shortly after he landed. He had just returned from getting a snack from the ocean. After landing, he flapped his wings several times to aid with drying off.

This photo sent by Cynthia McGinnes just came in, so Honorable Mention candid photos will resume tomorrow.

"The mares love Ricky, so do the foals," said McGinnes, referring to her farm manager Ricky Price at Thornmar Farm in Chestertown, Md. "This picture was taken 15 minutes after the colt was delivered,"

The foal, by Friesen Fire, was born at 6:30 a.m. on March 21.



Art in the Meadows and a curving fence

Marietta Hall sent this photo that she entitled "Art in the Meadow.”

"After a lush green pasture had just been mowed, I thought the lines of grass presented a majestic and unique pattern of waves that were left by the brush hog on the tractor that my husband drove as he followed the lay of the land long the slope," she said.

Hall also sent this photo that she sent, "purely because I see the beauty in the form of the fence."

"This is a fence along our back pasture as it gracefully curves along the slope of a hill down to the meadow," Hall said. "It leads one’s eye right up to a lovely stand of bright, fall foliage. The horses had just moved off grazing this area when we came along."

Both were taken at the Hall's Dogwood Hill Farm in Unionville, Pa.

Rainbow over Hicks' Farm

Marietta Hall of Unionville sent in this photo that she entitled "Rainbow over Hicks’ Farm."

This was taken on the evening of May 23, 2022, looking southeast from Church Road on New Garden towards the Hicks Farm. We had driven through a terrible thunderstorm on our way to the Greathouse at Loch Nairn for dinner. All of a sudden, the sun burst through the low clouds and illuminated the pasture, which I captured with my iPhone 13 Pro.
