On Most of My Adventures I Encounter a STRIKE!
One day I received an e-mail on VT from an irate member who chastised me for mentioning that whenever I'm in Italy, there is always a strike. It is true, but he (signed anonymous) was furious that I was being negative.
Once again, I'm going to discuss a strike; this time in Indianapolis, Indiana....so, all you "Hoosiers", don't write to me berating my honesty.
When JIll and I were walking toward the State Capitol, we encountered (twice) these striking dry-wall installers who were parading with placards and singing union songs. It was quite humorous because their logo or symbol was a RAT! They had a guy dressed as a rat; they had a huge plastic blow-up rat; most of the picture placards featured the Rat.
We assumed the Rat symbolized the place that they were striking against, but who knows?
I think that strikes are universal, and travelers have to "roll with the punches" rather than becoming upset.
Canterbury Arabian Horse Farm
At this intruiging place, visitors can see some of Indiana's most beautiful horses, pet their manes, see the horses cleaned and showered in a wash rack, watch and learn how they are exercised, and take a walk through what some people consider one of the nicest horse barns in all of the country. The Canterbury Arabian Horse Farm holds over 50 of this distinct and beautiful bread. Their horses have a bulletin board full of show ribbons and have even sponsored famous companies like the Indianapolis Colts football team.
Though you may not expect to see any high flying, state-of-the-art entertainment at the Canterbury Arabian Horse Farm, you will experience nature and its beasts at their best. The free admission is also a kicker because you might want to take your entire family. Ask for Flois or Debbie Burrow, the ranch owners, and they might be able to give you the tour themselves. It is truly a lovely location, and would be a great place to take a small trip for a couple hours. Great photo opportunities and great experiences can be had at the Canterbury Arabian Horse Farm.
Just a quick bustle from downtown to north of Noblesville will get you there. The farm is located at 12131 East 196th Street. Or use the information below to contact before leaving.
