Home is where the horses are
oh how beautiful! that appy looks like an arab when he poses, you know, the workman-like arab. i enlarged the photo so it filled my screen and relaxed my eyes to take in his form.i love his two tone tail, and the length too. i have something for hock-length tails - i think they look like baby tails and the horse looks younger with such a tail. of course it has to be thick and "fluffy" for that to work. that appy's got it: )
Nice photos! I sometimes forget that your guy has almost the same colours as Rusty.That is a nice looking herd - quite a good range of colours - red roan, palomino, grey, black and a sorrel (chestnut??)
Great photos! Nothing like alittle frolicking time!
Awww those are great photos! Thanks for sharing!Good pick me up this slow Wednesday morning...
Oh I love that first photo!! The Sorrel's mane is awesome!! I could watch horses run all day long!! Beautiful shots!!
I can almost hear them. Their snorts, their breath, their hooves. Thanks for sharing!
Are they having fun or what!!! Beautiful photos too!
The sorrel and black are Kimfer's dad's horses. Both are TWH geldings and the sorrel is a MAJOR bully. Part of the reason I'm waiting until spring to buy a new horse.The grey filly and the palomino gelding are Kimfer's (QH's) although *technically* the gelding is actually Kimfer's dad's.Then of course there is our Appy. Not pictured is Cessa who wisely kept her old butt out of the way. lol
Lytha - he does have kinda an Arab look doesn't he? His tail is actually quite a bit below his hock, I think the combo of the breeze and his holding it make it look shorter. But he does have a pretty, long and thick tail which I am grateful for. I feel so bad for those Appies with the broomstick tail. God gave horses tails for a reason!
Beautiful photos!I love seeing a herd of horses running and just enjoying being alive :)~Lisa
He looks like a proud stallion! Very cut pics.
Love the photos! Love 'em!
Hah, I was gonna say, where is the snow? but then I read that this was back in the fall:-p You must be dreaming of warmer times. Apple Jack looks like he's having a blast out there! Where does he fall in the herd ranks?
LOL!!! I just read Denise's comment and had to laugh because I was thinking the exact same thing!!! Guess I need to read the fine print, eh???Great pictures by the way....
Denise - Applejack falls into the middle. He's not low man in the group, that is Cessa although it didn't start that way - I think that's age related!But that sorrel and that black are the two herd leaders.
