You may recall that, a couple of years ago, I wrote a blog post or two on Wednesdays and titled them “Wild Horse Wednesday”. Then I received a rather terse “cease and desist” email from The Wild Horse Freedom Federation informing me that those three words are a registered trademark. Imagine that, they somehow found my tiny little blog and were worried that it threatened their trademark. So, of course, I ceased and desisted. But, first I had a little fun with this post.
I wonder if anyone has registered the phrase “Wild Horses On Wednesday”. If so, I’m guessing I’ll hear about that, too.
So, ’til then: here goes. Pics from our last few trips to the Outer Banks.
I used to refer to horses with this coloring as having “blonde manes”. Then one of my horse friends politely pointed out to me that they’re actually called “flaxen” manes.
Blonde or flaxen, it’s a beautiful mane on a beautiful horse.
This time of year, the horses are easily hidden in the tall grasses.
Flaxen seems to be a popular hair color of the beach horses. Although it wasn’t an option for brunettes such as I, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the hair lightener from yesteryear: “Sun In”.
And this poor fella is looking a little scruffy.
Perhaps he’s like the rest of us: looking forward to and waiting patiently for warmer days and the end of winter.
