Three Horses

These three horses were found in a wet field the other day. I've had few interactions with horses other than instances with my camera these days and back aways stopping and watching them in snowy fields near home. I was on a  horse's back once in my life for a brief run around a field. A return equine engagement never reared its head, and I'm pretty ok with that. I know of many younger faces whose eyes light up with excitement with even the mention of the words like: horse, horse riding lessons or spending time working at a boarding barn. Me? I'll continue to admire them from afar. Giddy up!

  1. Yu caught all of them enjoying a horsey repast. Surrounded by greenery, their brown coats look great!

  2. Nice pic, I come from a family of cowboys, I'm not one. Most cowboys would rather herd cattle with a four wheeler. Easier to deal with and cheaper than a horse.
