This is a post that I thought was posted over a year ago and just found it so thought I would go on and share it now. We live in Central Kentucky and here the Kentucky Derby is a BIG deal. We enjoy the tradition of the horses and the races. My father is also a farrier (blacksmith for horse) so I grew up in the industry.
So a highlight of our year is our yearly Kentucky Derby Party. We invite new and old friends alike and enjoy time with great friends, with some great Kentucky food, and some good humored fun watching the race.
While we don’t ask everyone to deck out is full race gear my husband and son do like to sport a bow tie and I have a hat or fascinator (this one is very small).
