The Horse at the end of the Rainbow!

Just saw this interesting sight on arriving home this afternoon. (Not a great pic as taken with camera-phone) The horse is in the field next door to my house - Incidentally in this same field the great Danoli, former winner of Cheltenham was born and was ridden by my other neighbour Charlie Swan.  I wonder is this a sign of future greatness - Not a betting man me, but one would almost be tempted to have a flutter next time he runs.

It certainly does seem to be a sign from the great bookie in the sky. The photo turned out ok, given it's a phone camera.

That's Tom Foley's gallops, right? [And that's not poor grammar].

ps. You WV is "Rameesh" which is very like the Irish word to describe most of my comments.

pps.The WV after preview is "Wayst" which is me bar an "er".

Craic - Yes Ok but I was dissapointed considering it was a 5mp camera on a Nokia n95 which is supposeed to be a half decent camera

Primal - Not Tom Foley's gallops but Willie Austin's field (who bred Danoli) - the nearest gallops is Charlie Swan's just across the road.
Re the 'WV' - sorry but you have lost me!

You can have all the mega pixels you want, but if your camera cant deal with movement while zooming, then that's that. I have that problem with the camera my mother bought for me for christmas (thus I cannot, in good conscience, buy a new one). But let's face it, 10 years ago if you had talked about taking photos with your phone people would have thought you were a star trek fan. Ironicly the first motorola phones were based on the design of the star trek communicater. Just to say that, regardless the qulity, your photo illustrates very well your story, and still counts as one of those photos where you say, "ah Jeez, ident da an awful funny picture"

I didn't even drink coffee before i came to France, and now if I don't get my morning fix of fresh, black rocket fuel, heads roll. Still it's your only man for the croissant !

Great photo - just goes to show the importance of always having a camera with you (even a camera phone). Once you start doing that though you can be sure that the one time you forget you will be confronted with some ridiculously amazing photo op., I don't know, like Eamon Ryan driving a Hummer or a horse at the end of a rainbow...
