The Biltmore Estate: Koi, fountains and horses

Poseidon's trident clutched in the fish's tail.

This fountain drained into a large stone receptacle designed for horses to drink from.

The large gait on this stair steps was designed for horses to ascend and descend carefully.

I'm enjoying all of your great photos from The Biltmore Estate. I haven't been there in a very long time. Now I want to go again.

Thanks for the tour of the wonderful architectural elements found there.
