Kentucky Horse Park
by Stormy on July 26, 2007

The Trail of Painted Ponies art project has reached far beyond the borders of New Mexico, where it originated. This summer the Trail has come to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

First thing in the morning I ventured out to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. It's a two hour trip from southern Indiana, but the Horse Park museum was hosting the Trail of Painted Ponies exhibit with a number of the full size ponies and smaller sized masterwork ponies on display. The Kentucky Horse Park is a huge facility. It has many stables and arenas with constant exhibitions and competitions. The United States Olympic Horse Team is based from this facility. There are two museums in the park dedicated to the history of horse racing and to the history of the horse itself. A portion of the otherwise overcrowded facility is dedicated to the Trail of Painted Ponies exhibit. If you're a fan and will be in the area, go visit. The exhibit will be there through the start of September 2007 and is worth a trip for fans. There are four life-size ponies and dozens of masterworks on display.

Before heading off for Kentucky, Stormy snuck up on the hood of an Indiana State Trooper's car.

Stormy thinks this is cool as art, but he does not understand why horses do this.

So how did they get those horses on old wooden ships?

The Middleton Fire District fire truck looked pretty exciting, too.

And Stormy couldn't resist the Louisville police cruiser.
