If You Don’t Like Horses…

…then, you may as well move along.  Nothing to see here today but horses.

Yes, today, I’m sharing pictures from our most recent trip to the Outer Banks. I seem to say this a lot about our trips there, but it was a gorgeous day: temps on the beach were upper 70’s to 80 while we were there, a breeze off the ocean, just a perfect windows-down-arm-out-the-window kinda day.

And the fact that we saw 51 horses was a nice bonus.

I’m thinking this might be a future calendar entry.

Mmmmm….yummy sea oats.

And I also liked this one.

And this one:

But, by far, the highlight of the day was seeing the newest member of the herd: a filly, born just one week ago.

When I first spotted her, she was lying down.   We were stopped a good distance away, so we waited patiently, for probably 15-20 minutes. Thankfully, I noticed her ear twitching, then she swished her tail, so I knew she was okay.  Mom stood watch over her, and I’m guessing that’s dad in the background.

Finally, she awoke from her nap.

Look at that sweet curly little tail.

And a zoomed in (and later cropped) pic as she walked into the brush.  Her name hasn’t been announced yet; hopefully we’ll see her again in our travels.

And I’d just like to publicly thank my Motor Man for being the patient man that he is.

  1. What’s not to like about these gorgeous animals? And that filly………..Several of these pics are calendar worthy! Everyone should see them. Glad you had such a weather perfect day – there haven’t been many of those lately.

  4. I can’t imagine anyone not liking your wild horse pictures! Always lovely and always entertaining and definitely calendar worthy. I agree with Beth Ann that you could do your own calendar. And giving us a glimpse at that new little gal? So great! What a cutie with her curly tail! Your Motor Man’s patience rivals my hubby’s. Both of them are so willing to let us wait for the perfect photos and even turn the car around and go back for one. We definitely have keepers, Dianna!

  5. Omg omg omg….these are phenomenal!!!@ I always love horse pics with the little “cattle egrets” (I know-ironic) and these are great! The glossy coats, pulling of the sea oats.
