Default Polo Match

This "country boy" has done a lot of things. But, I am going to my first Polo match on April 3rd.

You can bring your own chairs if you like.

The best parts are when the horses get near you, and you can hear their breathing and stamping down the divots.

Look for me there, taking pictures near my blue E-Z-Go.

Watch the players closely. It is a tough, tough game with lots of collisions that are difficult to see because of the speed of the game. The horses know how to play the game as well as the players. I see a lot when I photograph the action using my fast motor drive. The expressions on the horses and players is amazing.

Have any pictures to post? I have been to a few polo matches but I guess we never sit close enough to feel the action.

How come the name for the horses icon is

Crap2 ?? http://www.talkofthevillages.com/for...lies/crap2.gif

Is that a comment on a special feature of a polo game?

You do not see horse poop on the field very often. They probably take care of that during the warm ups near the trailers than bring the horses into the Polo Field.
