Horses And Fences

Sometimes, when I’m in need of a blog topic, I turn to the picture library on our computer. Yesterday, while doing that, I found a few photos that I hadn’t shared. And they featured one of my favorite subjects.

Recently, Marshall and I took an elderly acquaintance to breakfast. Not far from her house, we always see a beautiful horse in a pasture. I often stop to take pictures.

Obviously, I have a very willing model. “How about a profile shot? This is my better side.”

On our last trip to the Outer Banks, we saw this “Black Beauty”, who obviously subscribes to the theory that the grass is, indeed, greener on the other side of the fence.

And, last but not least, one of my cousins lives a mile or two from us and has several horses.  A few days ago, as we passed by, we saw three of them standing by the fence near the highway.  Motor Man pulled in the lane, and the horses immediately began running toward the stable.

Yes, I have a horse obsession; seeing my photo library removes all doubt.

  1. Oh, he is quite the ham and very handsome! Great shots!

  2. I have loved horses since I was old enough to walk and talk. It is charming that it came to you later in life, AND I have learned several things from you about horses! I had never heard of Friesians or Gypsy horses, so there goes the old adage, never too old to learn. OR, it is a great thing to have friends in your life that you can learn from! Lovely pictures!

  3. Yes you do have a horse obsession but CLEARLY I have a cat obsession – I think we all have something we love to be close to and photograph……you have a way of capturing the beauty of horses – no matter WHERE they may be.


  4. Makes me miss my sweet horse, Lizzy. Who also ran in your cousins field a long time ago.

  5. They are truly beautiful animals, and you have a knack for capturing them at their best.

  6. A nice series of horse / fence pics to start the week !

  8. I enjoy every horse picture you take!

  9. They’re all beautiful. Funny about the second one eating from the other side of the fence.

  10. As always, great shots of those beautiful creatures. I too go to my photo cache for blog fodder often. I’ll take inspiration wherever it comes from!
