Just Horsing Around - 2

Sky Watch Friday has a new home and a life of it's own. Please check out the new sight and link in if you wish to participate. There were 330 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or above

I'm a very lucky blogger to have such a diversity of subject with which to display. I have stables, ponds, lakes, rivers and a woods behind my house were I can take photos. This is from the horse stables I pass on the way to work and the horses gathered for me to take pictures. Oh, they were grazing, I was taking the pictures. If you have a lot of brown spots on your white coat you can be fancy.
If you have less brown spots you can still look good.
Sometimes you have a few spots.
Sometimes you have a black coat with a big white spot.
Then again you may have no spots but a great white coat.
You could even have a Palomino coat.
This one even had a light brown coat with a dark brown face.
There was one with a medium brown coat with black hair.
The final one has a dark brown coat.
What a great diversity of horses that all looked great.

A beautiful series on the horses and a lot of other excellent photographs this week. I haven't been blogging much and won't for about two weeks, but I still try to get to a few when I can.

I don't really like horses, but I must admit these are lovely to look at. I really really like the brown one with back hairs. :) Great work! And I like the sky too.

These are wonderful looking horses and very well taken care of it appears.
If you haven't already check out Rick Lee's blog. He posted some West Virginia horses.

The Old Grey Mare in Virginia would like to say that you did a mighty fine job with this set of horse photos. I need to learn to blog better. Like how do you interspers a line of writing with a photo. You do a great job. I feel lucky if I can get a photo and some writing on a blog post. There should be a blog school to attend for dummies like yours truly.

I've never been into horses. (My dad grew up with them as beasts of work, and never liked them, so it sort of rubbed off on me.) However, my oldest daughter, age 6, LOVES them. We do not live in a place where it is feasible to have them (or even one), but her love is rubbing off on me now, so I like these pictures a lot--sort of on her behalf! Very nice series!

What lovely studies of horses. My granddaughter has one with brown spots, also a white pony who looks like a unicorn. Isn't nature grand!
