A certain highlight for the younger set was the presence of ‘Heartbreaker’ a miniature horse, in his 20’s astonishingly, and not showing a day of it. Charming and a bit squat, he patiently entertained tots dying to shove carrots in his mouth until he simply could eat no more and began to devour grass, I surmise from a tummy ache. He had the glossiest coat, leaving him feeling like a stuffed animal with artificial fur and me querying his keeper for the type of shampoo he uses feeling it not beyond me to go to the horse supply store to try it on my own mane for those results.

I LOVE your photographs-very elegant. Do you use a special macro lens for those shallow depth of field shots?
What a great celebration of local products. Everything looks delicious. I love salsa verde so I will have to try this. Buzzed ya' and saved this.

This sounds like a fantastic event. The photo of the corn model was my favorite because of her painted fingers.
I always like a pig roast. Thanks for an alternative version of salsa verde. The one I usually make has anchovies and capers, but my non-achovy friends would go for this version.

What a wonderful way to bring in Autumn. That picture of the pumpkins at the top makes it look like they are miniature pumpkins, I like the painted one! Also, thanks to you I now have subscription options available on my blog!
