Horse a piece

I don’t know much about horses (Equus ferus caballus).

I do know that they’re large, and they’ve been on the planet for a long time…domesticated since 4,000 BC (who doesn’t love wikipedia?)

Some are brown. Some are black.  Some are white.  An Appaloosa has spots.

They go “neigh, neigh,” and in the winter they can pull a sleigh (usually with bells on)…I’ve even seen great big horses pulling carts of beer through the snow (on television often during Budweiser commercials).

I have ridden a horse a couple times in my life.  Usually under duress and at a management team-building retreat.  It’s always scary (because I’m a city girl…and where are the brakes on those things anyway?)

That doesn’t mean that I don’t find horses and all the accoutrements beautiful.  I do.

I didn’t have to look far to find these two photogenic horses…they were prancing around the training ring at our neighborhood park.  One of them was adjusting to a new bridle something or other.  And they posed for me.

For those of you who thought you were going to read about Bar Dice and shots…yer buyin’, eh!
