On Tuesday this week we drove out to Salem. We saw a sure sign of spring; horses being worked in a field. We stopped so that I could take a few pictures. Alan was horrified that we would do this, but since I knew who the driver of the team was, it didn’t seem a problem to me.
This is Kenric Charles. He didn’t mind at all having his picture taken. At first I thought he was his brother Andrew Chase who owns a dairy farm just a few yards down this road, but then I realized it was Kenric. He said I should have known it was him because he “is the good looking one”. You see, that is how I knew it would be okay to take pictures.
I asked was he training them to work the field, he said no, he was training his horses for the fairs.
Two well-behaved handsome beauties. They stood very still by the side of the road until he told them to go on. Kenric says they can stand right by the road when a trailer truck goes by and not even flinch. This is a very busy road so I’m sure they have had to get used to the traffic.
All three of them seemed to be enjoying themselves.
