There’s a reason Lexington, Kentucky is known as the Horse Capital of the World. Where else would you go for a walk in the park one afternoon, and find a man grazing his mini horse? Jack DuArte, who is also an accomplished author and wine aficionado let Lily graze Darleigh for a while so we could chat.
Jack told me his Darleigh goes barefoot, and her farrier lives a couple of doors down from him, and it takes him a couple of minutes to keep her hooves trimmed regularly, for which he doesn’t charge. You can read the Herald Leader article about Darleigh here, and do check out her facebook page too. Do you think she IS the most famous horse in Lexington, Kentucky?
Many thanks to Jack for stopping to chat, it was a pleasure to meet you and Darleigh.
Lily and Harry consider trading Leo in – traitors!
