Horse Race



Today's picture shows the start of a Horse Race. The picture was taken in the Middle East in 1940 near Beersheba. It must have been an exciting event to watch.

  1. It looks like this horse is ready to go! Somehow a camel running just doesn't seem as exciting as watching a horse at full speed.

  2. I stumbled onto your blog from a picture on Pinterest; I read the story you wrote in 2008 about your daughter and the trip to the doctor's office. Thank you so much for that well-written, hilarious story~ I haven't laughed like that in a long time!

  3. I could be romanticizing the past, but I like to think that this horse race was a race among ordinary people who had reason to think they had fast horses, not horses on whose breeding vast sums of money had been spent and riders who had been exploited by greedy owners.
