When we make reservations at an RV park ahead of our arrival, we never really know what we’re going to get other than an appropriate size. In rural East Sparta, Ohio, we hit the jackpot. Front row seats to the wetlands, horses and the daily morning arrival of circling raptors (aka Turkey Vultures). Turkey Vultures have a 5′-7′ wingspan in adulthood. It’s a real treat to watch them soar, but they’re fairly ugly otherwise. There’s no such thing as an ugly horse, as far as I’m concerned.

The greeter horses. These two made sure they were always first at the fence when I walked over to chat horse.
