Horse Sense

Saturday was a beautiful day..over fifty degrees and no wind..perfect day to visit a friend and her horses.

My Husband does not really care for horses..well he does like them on a Merry Go Round..that is about it.

Find Far Guy

Here he is swarmed by horses.

Gene getting eaten by a horse

This one wanted to eat him alive..or gum him to death.  She even felt his head with her lips.  I was laughing so hard I didn’t get THAT photo. You may wonder why Far Guy is kneeling on the ground.  The horses were a bit aggressive..Shirley is on crutches and they toppled her over..she was fine..just resting before she got up…all the horses came to check on her..and to say hi to Far Guy.

Shirleys Horses

I stayed on the right side of the fence:)

  2. Although I love your last photo of the horses, I am on Far Guy's side as far as horses go. I can't believe he got that close, I would have been panicking.

  3. They are a curious animal even though they seem to be so large. I am glad the one on the ground is ok. I sometimes think they are like oversized dogs as they nudge things and people. I had a bunch of fallen apples you could have fed them. Great photos.

  4. Oh, that was funny! I don't think I would be on the side of the fence with those horses! :-)

  5. Even though I've lived with horses for the past 40 years, I wouldn't be in the mix of a group of horses that I didn't know. If they don't respect your space and then start milling around when one decides to show the rest that he is the boss, it can be trouble.
    Considering Far Guy doesn't like horses, he is brave (or foolish?) to be in with them:)
    Maybe that was the first time the mare had seen a bald guy!

  6. This is what I know about horses: one end kicks and the other end bites. Far Guy is a brave man! Enjoy your Sunday.

  12. Yes , the photographer must stay on the outside of the fence. Must confess I'm not big about horses.

  14. I think horses are beautiful, but I haven't been around them in years. My daughter lives in horse country, and she wants our little grandson to start riding lessons when he's three.
    Peace,

  15. Animals seem to enjoy picking on people who don't care for them.
    Have a great week!

  16. Well, at least it was good for a laugh, but I'm with you: the other side of the fence is the right side for me, too!

  17. I can't imagine why FarGuy would be right there in with the horses if he doesn't really like them...unless he was hoping to give them his cold--LOL! That horse looks like he is eating the clothes right off of him! I am fascinated by horses but have rarely ever been around them. They are so big that I think I'd be nervous to be in there with several of them at once. FarGuy is a brave man! :)
