HORSE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR, - "A topic or a plan that represents a change from what one thought was being talked about or considered. Shakespeare offered the companion saying in 'Twelfth Night' , where Maria is offered a comment on her plans against Malvolio and responds: 'My purpose is, indeed, a horse of that colour.'
One suspects that the image originated in racing where one might have bet on a horse of a certain color only to find that a horse of another color is winning.
Below are some figurines of blue horses that I spotted when I googled blue horses.
I do like horses but have never ridden one or owned one.. I remember as a child that my Dad owned a pair of work horses. One was white and the other black.. he hitched them to to the plow , wagon and other machinery to do the farming. Below is a picture of my Dad with the horses . They were named Bill and Charlie...Sidney was my father
This is a horse of our favorite colors... My dad served in World War 2
And finally as my blog title suggested.. A horse of a different color.. Hope you enjoyed my post this Monday
Today embark on an unexpected adventure with a friend.
