Hello everybody. Hope you had a great weekend. The weather in Colorado Springs stabilized and we did not see anymore snow. This weekend however, had a little more special meaning over in Louisville Kentucky. Over the weekend, to be more precise, this Saturday, they ran the 139th Kentucky Derby. This horse race is in Louisville, Kentucky at a place called Churchill Downs. The horse race is one and a quarter miles long and is the first leg of the US Triple Crown. Many people refer to this race as the "Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports" and it is exciting. They also call this horse race "The Run For The Roses" (Wow there are a lot of nicknames for this horse race.) because their is a blanket of roses draped over the winner. This year's they draped the blanket of roses over Orb. Orb is your 2013 Kentucky Derby winner and now has a chance to win the US Triple Crown. All Orb has to do now is win the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes and will become the first US Triple Crown winner since 1978. There has only been 11 horses ever to win the US Triple Crown. We wanted to congratulate Orb on his Kentucky Derby victory and wish him the best of look on his pursuit of the US Triple Crown.
It looks like the question that needs to be answer is how best to celebrate Orb's win at the Kentucky Derby? We obviously know Orb has a blanket of roses, so it looks like flowers will be out. How about candy? Naa that does not seem appropriate either. As we ponder that question, we thought maybe the digital vaults at abullrun should also ponder that question. The digital vaults at abullrun did ponder that question and after pondering for a little bit, they came back with the answer the Needlepoint Design Gentle Strength. What a beautiful design. It always amazes us that a horse can look so beautiful and have that strength about them as well. A magnificent animal indeed.
There could be no doubt that the featured item of the day after Orb's victory at the Kentucky Derby has to be the Needlepoint Design Gentle Strength. A quick look at this needlepoint design and you can see the essence of this horse is strength and endurance tempered by beauty and gentleness. What a combination. What a horse. The finished size of this majestic portait is 11" x 14" (27.94 x 35.56 cm).
