Feeling Sulky?/ Ruby Tuesday

Sulky on a private track (beside a major road) in East Gwillimbury

Note that both the driver and the horse are wearing red.

Here they come again!

Pretty cold to be "dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh" round a practice track in this sort of weather.

Happy Ruby to you!

Wow! That was so nice of him to dress up in red just for us. Great show of red, on him and the horse.

Nice catch! Red stands out!

Pia K said...

Nice ones! I do like the little red touch that also the horse sports:)

Felisol said...

This horse looks like he need no red to fight.
The jockey is stylishly red against he white landscape.

Nice trotter, practicing for the harness racing track. I don't bet, but to be at a track working a horse and driver working as a true team, that is always worth watching!

A great choice of the red jacket on what must be a cold ride! Happy Ruby Tuesday!

The red pops!

awesome!!! I never get to see this in real life. Nope, never. Thanks, I love the nice red warm jacket.

Wayne said...

That is really a cool image. It just wouldn't have been the same without the red jacket.

dot said...

This is your best ever! How many times have I said that? lol. I love the action in the pictures and of course the snow and the red jacket.

Great shot.

Olga said...

I like how the first photo is almost entirely black & white other than the red jacket!

Carletta said...

Ellen said it. :)
These are great. I admire a guy who would get out in what looks like very cold weather and you for getting out there to take the photos.

Jientje said...

The first one is my favourite, I love the movement in that picture! Great shot!

Barbara Martin said...

I used to drive past this farm every Saturday morning, and its nice to know they are still there. I expect they're getting ready for Mohawk Raceways.

Robin said...

That red jacket really pops against the snow. Nice catch.

napaboaniya said...

Both wearing red and both looking as though they're having some cold fun :)

A splash of colour in the winter white country.

I guess you probably saw my horse racing photos like these on my blog. I have not seen them in the snow before but they do practice in the snow here too.

Linnea W said...

Wow! What a wonderful shot to capture. It looks like those two are having fun in the chill! Great RT images.

Mary said...

This is great! Love it! That looks like fun, if a bit cold.

PERBS said...

Great "action" shot!

I left comments ont he two below that I had missed because I ahve been playing in the snow too!

Mojo said...

What a gorgeous animal! I love the way the horse contrasts with the white background. Really awesome (if a little chilly!)

The look like they are enjoying themselves - especially in that second photo.
