Kids, Pets & More photo

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.
