Friday’s Fences And A Floppy Ear

These pictures were taken earlier this month in beautiful, downtown Surry, Virginia (population 262).

Sadly, I didn’t have any horse treats with me. For shame.

Notice the floppy right side ear?

A friend was recently told that this is a retired carriage horse from Colonial Williamsburg.

I’ll try to verify that and report back to you. Whether it be true or not, I think he’s handsome, floppy ear and all.

Linking up to Friday’s Fences.

  3. He’s beautiful. I’d like to give him a hug and a carrot. 🙂

  4. He looks casually interested which I take as relaxed! 🙂 MJ

  5. He looks very friendly..hope he is enjoying his retirement!

  6. “downtown” – hahaha! I love this weathered fence…it’s in really good shape and still has that ‘been there forever’ look!

  7. He’s beautiful. Floppy ear and all!

  8. Grand photos Dianna! And I love the floppy eared horse. He has character. 🙂

  9. He must use his good ear to hear what he wants to hear…..hmmmm, I have known men like that :-).

  10. He is handsome and he looks like he was longing for a treat. You better start keeping horse treats packed up with your camera in the car. 😉

  11. Beautiful big guy! Floppy ear and all…

  12. That floppy flipped over ear is endearing. He IS handsome! He looks like he is enjoying retirement. He looks very interested in YOU! I am loving these pictures of horses you are coming up with.. 🙂

  13. Before I even scrolled down to read the first caption, I thought “I’m sure she had some treats with her..” 😉 maybe next time!
    I can see how he could’ve been a carriage horse … let us know if you find out more !

  14. oohhhhh he’s gorgeous!! I always wonder if it is ok to give them a treat and what it would be!!

    Surry has everything now, even lovely sweet horses. I love his face!!

  16. His floppy ear just adds charm to his face. If he is retired from Williamsburg, he is one lucky horse. genie

  17. I’ve never seen a horse with a floppy ear. You didn’t have treats? 😉

  18. I love the idea that he IS a retired carriage horse from Williamsburg – retirement is wonderful and I do so hope he’s enjoying his! I think he’s quite handsome too – the floppy ear gives him “character” !!


  19. He is a sweet baby. Loved being scratched behind either ear and sure wish I had had carrots when I visited him. I do no know his name, I always call hime “Dianna’s Horse”. A sweet ,sociable horse.

  20. Sweet photos! I’m going to be in Williamsburg the week of May 23-May 30. We should get together for lunch one day! ~ Sheila
