Horsing Around

Yesterday the weather was so pretty that I stopped at a nearby stable to take a few photos of the horses that board there.

There were a few horses in the pastures.

My favorite horse was this one.  She was a goof.

After trotting around the pasture to make sure that everyone saw her, she dropped down to the ground and did a shimmy & a roll.

And then, just for good measure, she did it again rolling in the other direction.

Meanwhile, in an adjacent pasture, an older horse looked on with what only may be described as “church lady” contempt.  In fact, she snorted a few times, clearly unimpressed with little miss shimmy.

And there I stood, camera in hand, snapping photos and laughing at the show.  I mean, who knew that horsing around was something that literally happened?  Not me, that’s for sure.  But now I do– and I’ve got the photos to prove it!

  1. Beautiful photos! Makes me reminiscent of when I lived with a pasture for convalescing horses right behind me. I talked with their people and since it was okay with them, fed them apples and carrots every night. Shy horses that came to expect me and stuck their heads in my coat looking for treats. It was the best thing about that house!

    1. Zazzy, what a delightful memory– how sweet. All the fences surrounding these horses have signs that say: “Do Not Feed The Horses.” So I don’t.

  3. For goodness sake,
    I’ve got the hippy hippy shake.
    I’ve got the shake,
    oh the hippy hippy shake.

    Oo I can’t keep still
    with the hippy hippy shake.
    I get my fill
    with that hippy hippy shake.
    Oo my babe,
    auw the hippy hippy shake.

    Well now you shake it to the left,
    you shake it to the right.
    Do the hippy shake shake
    with all of your might.

    And you shake.
    Oh you shake.
    Oo my babe.
    Auw the hippy hippy shake.
