Equine Heaven

The Duke and Dutchess were entertaining one of my pregnant cousins the day Frank and I visited Bowhill.  Therefore we were not invited in for tea... quite disappointing.  However, we were able to stroll the grounds, which we probably enjoyed more than we would have liked looking at a bunch of old artwork anyway.  :-)

 

So that's what you get to see of Bowhill... outside! 

 

 

Bowhill is one of five Buccleuch Estates. 

If you have any interest, here are the others...

I suspect this fine tree has been here through several generations of your ancestors Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Something to think about, eh?!
Simply wonderful with this light Elizabeth!

Now that's a spelendid tree but the horse seems indifferent to it; perhaps it has seen it all before?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's "ho-hum" for him, I'm sure!
Oh to be an aristocrat with such an estate to wander
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We should all be so lucky!!

Second rate artwork is not worth the time of day ELizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well, I don't know that it'd be second rate... The Duke is the fifth wealthiest man in the UK... but I enjoy being outside more than in! smile
That is a mighty big tree!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Gigundous!!

Not a junior tree, that one. Probably date back to when the Buckalews and Buccleuhs went their separate ways. Great shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Ain't it grand! smile Well that would be 1662...
You are certainly capturing some gorgeous images on your stroll around the grounds of Bowhill Estate, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was such a lovely day - and they really didn't care where we wandered, so long as it was outside!
great composition with the horse and tree
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much Chantal!
I have a feeling you can tell a lot about a place just by its horses and trees, Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You may be right... this is a wonderful spot is it!
The horse gives scale to this magnificent tree Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't that great!!
I like this, a lovely tree and a lovely horse, but together in this composition is exceptional.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so very much Brian!!
I assume you had Frank lead in the horse and then hide behind the tree?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - and rode off into the sunset... smile

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it just!! Thank you Anne!
A splendid tree, makes the horse look quite small
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it amazing!!

I think this is better than the little-finger-curling alternative, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm glad you agree on that!
Nice shot 👍👍
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Miss Belinda!!!
