Upscale Stable/ Sky Watch

Into every life some rain must fall. Luckily these horses have a place to take cover, eh?

Hmmmm. Some horses live in nicer places than people, and here's a photo of one such spiffy residence. Kinda nice, don't you agree?

Whenever we travel west to reach highway 400 -- a major north/south highway -- we pass by this gorgeous building. When the "stable" was being built we couldn't imagine who was going to live there. ;-) The house behind, which you can just barely see in the background, isn't too shabby either.

I was drawn by the photo of the lovely house....didn't suspect it was just the stables. Very nice indeed. Are these racehorses?

Quiet Paths said...

This is a terrific shot; those mounds of clouds almost make a spiral tower over the stables.

:) I see a smiley face in the clouds smiling down on some rather pampered horses. Wonder what their chow is?

This is simply perfection. Love the scene.

Are these the draft horses for plowing the fields and gardens?

I think not.

Great photo,

You are right, pretty amazing. I.m sure they would like your picture in their dining room. It's good enough.

Yes, those horses certainly are lucky to live in such a beautiful building!

Very nice shot with lovely clouds and a beautiful place. Well done:)

That is very beautiful. It looks so peaceful and inviting!

Nice! It reminds me of a place near Nashville, TN. I always enjoyed passing by when the horses were outside. I always said I wouldn't mind living in the barn! Great skywatch. BJ

RuneE said...

What you might call a "nice villa"...

Thank you for sharing!

Reader Wil said...

Wonderful for horses to have such a dwelling! Mine is much smaller!

Linda Reeder said...

The steeples on the stable seem to be piercing the sky.
Must be some important horses!

Kelly said...

Beautiful horse barn! Stunning catch and picture!

John said...

What a great capture and nice composition.

Mary said...

Wow, just gorgeous! And I think that my house would fit in that barn with room left over for three more... :)

Mary said...

Ah, yes....maybe they would share quarters with us? Wonderful photo! Love your header, too!

Wren said...

It's nice sky, and a great photo. I'm not going to ruin by appreciation by thinking about horses living in luxury.

Shammickite said...

I drive by that stable building every time I go to see my son in Tottenham... and I always think what a nice place it is. I hope the horses appreciate it!
The other unusual building on that road is the Golf Club with the curved roof!

Rambling Woods said...

Each individual horse is probably worth the cost of a decent college's tuition...see where my thoughts are...

Kostas said...

Amazing photograph, splendid colours, very good the frame!
