Meeting Frankie

One beautiful day last week we were out early for a bike ride at the
Allaire Bike Path.
The first thing I spotted as we pulled in to the parking lot...

was Frankie.

This beautiful girl on the right does not speak English.
She mentioned that to me "after" I went on and on...
for several minutes,
expressing my deep love of horses to her.
I do wish she had interrupted me!

Here's Kate, she does speak English and was so very kind
and friendly to me.
Telling me all about both of the horses,

and encouraging to me pet and interact with them.
That was easy, the hubs took these great shots.

I can't remember this beautiful mare's name,

but Frankie I will remember forever.

This brief encounter made my day.
Meeting these two lovely girls and their amazing horses.
Kate said they were going to ride the entire morning.
Allaire has dedicated horse paths as well as walking and bike paths.

I hope they had fun, we had an awesome ride on the bikes,
on this very beautiful day!!


  1. Oh Frankie and the other horse are beautiful they look very much loved. Oh what a great bike ride that turned out to be I can tell by your happy face it truly made your day. Hubs is a great photographer too. B

  2. so glad you had the chance to get to meet both of the horses. such great pics. your husband did very well. wow, you got up so close. i would be kind of scared to get that close.

    i remember as kid, i worked for a lady who had a horse & she would give me carrots to feed them & i would put them in my hand as she had told me & their whisker around their mouth always tickled me ... it was the closest i had ever been to a horse ... they are just so big ... very intimidating to me. ( :

  3. so sweet! you were soaking it up, i can tell. :) they're beautiful.

  4. Debbie, Frankie and the other horse are both gorgeous. I would have been there just like you trying to pet them. Glad you had a nice day out on your bike! Great photos, have a happy week ahead!

  5. Frankie is beautiful! I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself. Looks like so much fun!

  6. I love the shots with you and the horses. I just love horses, too, but never had one - sigh... I'm happy you had such a wonderful day!

  7. Oh, I can see the joy on your face! That's great that you got to meet Frankie and the other horse. They're beautiful. I love horses, too. I wanted one so badly as a child, but mom and dad said no. :-( So I pretended that my bike was a horse. :-)

  8. Beautiful horses...I love them, too...have since I was a kid!

  9. Wow, gorgeous! Both are great looking animals! I love riding!

  10. Looks like a great day for a bike ride or a horseback ride. Glad you had fun!

  11. I am allowed a wee bit of jealousy now and then right?

  12. I can tell you really enjoyed meeting Frankie!!! Your expression says it all. Me on the other hand, was happy to stay home and weed the garden!!!

  13. What fun to be around those beautiful animals. I would have been thrilled. Great post Debbie!

  14. They are such beautiful creatures, and Frankie is especially handsome!

  15. I totally enjoy reading about your adventures and the photos are always so wonderful. I too love horses but it has been a long time since I have been on one. Loved the pictures of you with the horse.

  16. So beautiful! Lucky for us that you had your camera with you so we could see those gorgeous creatures too!

  17. Would love to see one of these photos blown up and framed - so beautiful!!!

  18. It has been a long time since I have seen horses close-up...
    You were lucky to get some loving!!

  19. They are beautiful horses even though I've always been a bit afraid to be around horses. It was wonderful they let you pet them and share your love of horses with them. Cool that your hubby took the photo's for you too.
