Since Prue & Paul are  horse people  ( Prue jaunts off to Poland several times a year to buy horses ).... we flipped up to the Brood Mare Auction  taking place at Keenlands.

Ooooh.... it was enough to make your mouth water.

  One of the auctioneers gave us a personally guided tour  ( we had met him the night before in the bar at the hotel )

WOW  !!!     VERY  VERY exciting .... especially since one of the horses went for over 2 million dollars

This is an event worth seeing.  It has even been featured on several TV programs  ( including the Johnny Carson Show ).

It takes place in the elegant lobby of the Peabody Hotel .

Twice a day ... the ducks ride down in the elevator ......  parade across the red carpet   ( in time to music ) .... climb into the lobby fountain & take a swim for a bit.

Then at a given signal ....  climb back out  ....  parade back to the elevator & ride back up to their penthouse.

It's  absolutely  hysterical  !!!


This has been going on for  50  years.


Then ........

Guess  What  ??!!!  

For those of you who haven't been here .....   How about a mini-tour ?
