Elegant Horse Stalls

These are the quite elegant  stalls to be found inside the Casa Loma stables which I showed you yesterday. The stables were built to house the pedigreed horses belonging to Sir Henry Pellatt who was the man that had Casa Loma built. They also contain a potting shed and a conservatory but not all have been restored to the degree that the stalls have!

This makes me think of the Royal Mews in London. Just beautiful.

I always wonder how hard it would have been to be a groomsman, essentially a lowly house worker, while the horses lived in such luxury.

A very grand place indeed, love the flooring too.

Gosh and I was right Pat, definitely the most ornate stables I've ever seen! Lucky equines :)

Throw a pallet on the floor and I would sleep there!

Wow, they were well cared for.

Gee. Do the horses use silver cutlery when the dine? Pass the hay please. Chuckle. Thx for showing us these pristine stables.
