Between the wedding and the reception, we ventured out a bit to see some of the estates and horses. The buildings in the background on top of the hill are for the workers who tend to the horses and dogs - primarily Mexicans - which is interesting as they were the ones who tended to the horses and many were jockies at Arlington Heights horse track. Guess it makes sense - lots of Mexico is horse country as well.
The wooden structure is for the hounds when they let them out into the fields. They like to congregate there and hang out.
We pulled over to watch some of the horses and several immediately walked over to greet us.
Breaks in the fences that allow the horses and riders and hounds access to various fields and forests.
Ada being bold - she tends to be a bit tentative in these type of situations but these horses were really friendly.
And then the rest of them sauntered over to say hi.
Never thought a picture like this would exist in my life.
Full on into road trip mode. Selfie driving back on New Years day. Bit of a rough go as stayed up late and got up early. Girls responded to this situation appropriately.
