A New Fan

Motor Man and I were on/in/at the Outer Banks last week, and it just so happened that my friend, Donna, was also there on vacation with relatives. As much as Donna loves horses, she had never been to the Corolla area to see the wild horses.

So we were happy to introduce her to “my” horses.

We saw twelve during our morning on the beach, including these two. Donna said that she thought it to be a mother and her young colt. Perhaps the two of them realize that soon, he will be forced to leave the harem and find a mare of his own.

Then Mom decided to roll over and have a good back scratch.  I love to see them do this; it must really feel good to kick up your heels like that.

 (groan)….time to get up….  Oh wait, that’s the sound I make when I get up in the morning….

As much fun as it was to see those two, this is probably my favorite picture I took that day.

 We also saw this “Beach Boy” up on one of the dunes.

What a fun morning the three of us had.

And Motor Man was such a good sport, putting up with our antics. And the horses definitely have a new fan.

  8. Fabulous, fantastic photos. I love them – the pics and the horses. And you three aren’t bad either.

  9. It was a great morning, even though I was confused when we didn’t see horses and you said, well let’s go to the fire house. I was thinking how did she know a good looking fireman always cheers me up, when she explained “you always see horses near the firehouse” and she was right! Even though I would not have objected to the fireman either….. It was a fun fun morning! Thanks Dianna and JR
