Aren't they elegant? I wonder how they feel about the plumes.
Petrea - I don't think the plumes bothered the horses, the day was windy and flapping flags intially did make them nervous. I spoke to the owner and he said it wasn't the noise, but the fact that the flags were in the sight line of the horses. The problem was solved by moving the horses forward a little.
Thank you, Martin. That makes sense to me. Even my dog is disconcerted by things that flap in the wind.
