Our Saturday Entertainment

As planned, my friend and I had a fun Saturday morning.

We antiqued, her with a little more success than I, and we visited the Farmers Market, where we both bought a few pieces of handmade jewelry. We went to the greenhouse/nursery, where we bought gifts for upcoming occasions.

We went to lunch and talked and laughed and ate and laughed and talked. But, probably, the most fun we had the entire morning was when we stopped to give a few treats to a local horse.

Rumor has it that he’s a retired carriage horse from Colonial Williamsburg. We don’t know if that’s true, but he certainly was showing off for us on Saturday. Just what WAS he doing?

At first, we thought he was yawning, but that wasn’t the case. When I showed the pictures to Motor Man, he said it looked as though he was going to spit on us, but that wasn’t it either.

He did it over and over again, almost on cue. Perhaps he was smiling at us?

And Donna and I laughed and laughed every time he did it,Β assuring him each time, though, that we were laughing WITH him, not AT him.

Judging by that look, I’m not sure he believed us.

  1. What a bootiful horse! Isn’t he funny ^_^


  2. He’s relaxed and “taking you in” — smelling you! πŸ™‚ Funny guy πŸ™‚ I’m guessing he might have also learned that doing so gets him more treats!

  3. That is hysterical!!!! He is telling you a joke or something!!! I love it! Thanks for the giggles this morning.

  4. Great pics! Love the first one:) And the three that follow are absolutely hilarious! Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. He was definitely showing off. I have a feeling he was taught to do that. Great entertainment!!

  6. He certainly is a funny guy.

  7. Cute! I think he learned through his years of service that if he did that, he’d get a treat of some kind – maybe a apple or something. Nice that you visited him!


  8. I bet he was laughing with you! πŸ˜€

  9. Sounds and looks like you had a fun Saturday! Lunch is always fun. You have some great horses to visit. I am with MJ on his Mr. Ed impression.. πŸ™‚ He was smelling you I believe or taking in some kind of smell he liked the same way cats do with the flehmen response.

  10. Love it and the reference to Mr. Ed. METV gives the ‘newer’ generation a chance to enjoy him too.

  11. If only we could understand the languages of the animal world! I figure he was trying to say something or maybe it was his way of laughing with /at you.

  12. Those are some chompers! … definitely smiling at y’all !

  13. I think he was flirting with y’all, Dianna! Looking for a little sugar!

    Sharing time and fun with friends is always fun. I think the horse just wanted to be part of the girls day out!

  15. What a comical horsey. I like him alot. He makes me laugh too. πŸ™‚

  16. Maybe he thought you were his dentist. Funny faces, nonetheless. Glad you had such a great day.
