Let's dance...! I guess this is what they mean by "hoofers"...
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Larry. smile
i'm sure that the other horses are laughing at him Ginnie... great find....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Peter, it was my first time to see such a thing, but Astrid was quite knowledgeable about it all. She even wanted to take me to the store here in Gorinchem where they sell them. smile

I will dance with you and I will paint the town red... (and end up in jail wink)
I love the 'nail-polish' on this horse...
Ginnie Hart: I think we could easily get into as much trouble as we'd ever want, MLMA! HA!
Very funny Ginnie. Original and beautiful shoes ! I love it !
Ginnie Hart: It was my first time to see such a thing, Marie, so I just stared shamelessly. For Astrid, she knew all about them and wanted to take me to the nearby store where we live to show them to me. smile

I'm sure these have a very practical purpose Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure, too, Chris, even though I can't remember now what it is. But Astrid sure knew all about them and wanted to take me to the nearby store here in Gorinchem to show them to me. smile

What for a great find!
Ginnie Hart: I was delighted, Philine, because I had never seen such a thing before. Astrid, on the other hand, was quite familiar with them.

Goody Two-Shoes, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's a good one, Lisl! smile
Very funny Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: My first time to see such a thing, Roland. smile
I did know what these are for but I have forgotten Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It was a first for me, Chad. smile

This makes me smile, Ginnie..."Made in England", so the Users had better buy up all they can find before the Trade Shutters are erected.
Ginnie Hart: What's funny to me, Ray, is that Astrid recognized these immediately, even though I've never seen them here in Hollandshire. Apparently there's a shop down the street from us that sells them! smile
Made in England!! A rare sight!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, Malta WAS ruled by England for 150 years!

C'est original mais je ne vois pas à  quoi cela sert.
Ginnie Hart: It's a protection for the horse's hooves, Martine, but I'm not sure exactly what/how?
It looks like it's knees are crossed. Fun shot.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Bowlegged, maybe? Thanks.
It looks as though the horse is wearing jelly moulds!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Brian. smile

Did that horse actually cross her legs??? GREAT!
Ginnie Hart: HA! NO, Bonnie. In fact, it never crossed my mind, so I think someone else has a rich imagination. smile Thanks.
Hang on, let me grab my reading glasses...

No way, the red shoes were actually "Made in England"!

Oh, I couldn't be any happier and prouder. I am pretty sure we exported some of these lovely red shoes to the US of A too. Just not in GA. wink
Ginnie Hart: I had never seen such "shoes" in my life, LC, which doesn't mean they don't have them in the USA or GA, for that matter. But Astrid immediately recognized them, so maybe England is everywhere?
Well, I wonder what their purpose is?
Ginnie Hart: They protect the hooves, Tom, but I'm not sure from what????
I hope that wasn't in the red light district.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! Good one, Michael. grin
oh this is a most interesting observation, Ginnie. i wonder how it got put on.
Ginnie Hart: OMG, Ayush, Leave it to you to ask how they get put on. I never once thought about that!!!
LOVE it!! So fun!
Ginnie Hart: If we can't take a joke, Robin, right? smile
belle prise insolite!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: May we always be surprised by what we see, JP, right?!
