The Nash Pet Salon is located in the heart of the Bluegrass. Lexington provides many interesting activities for visitors. There are beautiful horse farms to see as well as the Kentucky Horse Park to experience, which takes you back in time to past Kentucky Derby winners, and allows you to visit with such great, living horses as Cigar. Many activities provided by the park are also available to visitors, including horseback riding. Fayette County consists of 283 square miles of gently rolling plateau in the center of the inner Bluegrass Region. The area is noted for its beauty, fertile soil, excellent pastureland and horse and stock farms. Poe Pratensis (bluegrass) thrives on the limestone beneath the soil's surface, playing a major role in the area's scenic beauty and in the development of champion horses. Numerous small creeks rise and flow into the Kentucky River in this picturesque and historic region.
