Wild, Wild Horses

We stayed in Wiltshire County near Westbury last night, but just before checking in, we went looking for the Westbury White Horse, cut into the chalky hillside in 1742.

Although it was raining, we drove to the top and hiked out to the overlook in our rain jackets. It was really cold.

But the close-up view was worth it.

There are several of these white horses, carved into the hills in Wiltshire County back in the 1700s and more recently, the Westbury White Horse being the oldest one. We saw another today while driving from Stonehenge to Avebury:

And, no, they were not made by aliens, just local folk, looking for something to do on a summer’s eve.
