You could use this photo to advertise something

Not altogether sure what to say about this one, other than it’s certainly different.

A fantastic photo today! Talk about being in the right place at the right time. ( Reminds me of the Lloyd's bank advert.) I'm puzzled by the skyline! Looks as if it's been 'manufactured'. I love it though ... the stallion especially and the ghostly buildings in the sky.

The theme from "Black Beauty" came straight into my head when I saw this beautiful animal, and I can't stop humming it now!

Lovely pic ! Like Veronica says,puts you in mind of the Lloyd's bank advert.

Comment by: Ray on 8th February 2022 at 09:01

This sequence appears quite often on the television, it is the advert for
Lloyds Bank showing Black Beauty and steam locomotive number 60103
Flying Scotsman.

Veronica - it IS the Lloyds Bank advert - on a bush shelter.

A really good one Poet you can ' feel' the speed, the train & the horse trying to keep up. Well captured indeed !

Poet: Come on you can tell John, are you going into a midlife crisis, do you need 10 minutes in the cradle of life.
Or is this some kind of abstract art, or shall I send you some Uncle Joes Mint balls.

Oh! I see thankyou Jembo but so creative ! Mind you these days I don't stand at bus shelters.. I agree you could reflect for some while waiting of buses.

That horse is from a farm in Abram.

Comment by: John G on 8th February 2022 at 17:26

Irene: That’s a very positive statement.

Comment by: irene roberts on 8th February 2022 at 18:01

Yes, I know, and I'm not saying HOW I know, but it is.

Comment by: Mick on 8th February 2022 at 18:36

I heard the horse wasn't as black as they wanted so they sprayed it with some thinned down molasses.
I'm not saying how I know this information, but I do.

Comment by: The Real James Hanson on 8th February 2022 at 19:02

The horse lives at Holme Park Stud, Northill, Bedfordshire. I'm not saying HOW I know, but it does.
And he's never even heard of Abram.

Comment by: irene roberts on 8th February 2022 at 20:12

That's fine, gentlemen. I'm sure, as a mere female, that you must know better than I do. As none of us are prepared to say how we know what we know, we'll just leave it at that, shall we? Goodnight.

Comment by: John G on 8th February 2022 at 20:49

Irene: Now don’t worry about it or get upset, if you say that horse came from a farm in Abram, that’s good enough for me you don’t have to explain.
Come on Lads let’s give Irene a little slack here, she deserves our respect.

Comment by: irene roberts on 8th February 2022 at 21:22

Thankyou, John G. I assure you I'm not upset in the slightest, but how kind it is of you to say what you said.

Comment by: Pw on 8th February 2022 at 22:02

There is a lot information on Google about this horse.

Comment by: Poet on 8th February 2022 at 22:45

" At last . The bus is coming ! The things one thinks about when waiting all day for a bus " .

Thanks to all the actors who contributed to this little play . And good night .

Thank goodness for that - it was all a dream...so it doesn't matter what barn the horse lives in - Meanwhile still 'Waiting for Godot'.....
