Introduction

Gina w-Clydesdale

This is the first post in my new blog. Bear with me as I learn how to use WordPress, share my struggles, stories and thoughts.

The photo shown was taken in 2009, in my hometown of Portland, Indiana. The local beer distributor had arranged for the Budweiser Clydesdales to make an appearance in the small town. It was awesome to see the hitch up close and personal, although I was disappointed that they didn’t let them trot down the street. But the walking was thunderous enough…

This particular horse was one of the youngest in the hitch, and the handlers shared that he’d not quite learned to stand patiently when they were stopped for photo opps. So, this shot, caught by my husband Rob with his phone at just the right instant is NOT really the two of us sharing a “moment” but instead this big guy is in mid- head toss. At any rate, I don’t have many good pics of myself (I’m always manning the camera) so I’ll keep this as one of my favorites.
