Kentucky's famed thoroughbreds, as well as ordinary plugs, occasionally need to see the doctor. Though they may not appreciate it, they tend to be in good hands. The series is about the Woodford equine hospital outside of Versailles (/vɜrˈseɪlz/), Kentucky. Watching highly skilled people at work they enjoy is one of my favorite pastimes, and I am intrigued by the interaction between humans and animals in an environment that outsiders rarely get to see. It is reassuring to watch caring hands and minds intervene in the lives of suffering creatures that do not understand what is happening to them. My thanks go to the people at Woodford for tolerating me in situations in which photography mattered least.
