More Wild Horses

A couple weeks ago, we passed a sign for a horse show. So we turned into the road and watched a bit.

As we were leaving, we passed a huge fenced-in pasture. There were two horses in it.


The horses were beautifully groomed, and were even wearing coats. Phi said they were likely very expensive show horses, or race horses.  They came right up to me and stuck their heads over the fence. So for the first time, I petted a horse!


They were so friendly to me that I was beginning to think that I was The Horse Whisperer or something. Until Phil informed me that they were looking for food. I should have known!

The eyes of the young man were opened and he saw. A wonder! The whole mountainside full of horses and chariots of fire surrounding Elisha!”

Oh how wonderful, such a great first time experience. Gorgeous photos Ginny and a fabulous header too. They may have been looking for food but I still think you are a horse whisperer and they recognized a friend.

I like your blog header. These are beautiful horses. I have not pet a horse before and it must have been a wonderful experience. I think the horse can sense that you are a friend with a good heart. Have a beautiful day!

they are gorgeous... I have petted a few through fences and we have to remember to never feed them anything unless the owners say it is ok. horses have allergies just like people and we could injure them. I would have done the same thing you did, pull in and watch and snap

I never come so close to a live horse before... yes, they look so adorable even at close-up, but have to be careful not to get a "kick" from them. LOL...

It is wonderful that you finally got to pet a horse. Did you notice how soft anf velvety their noses are? And did you notice the smell? I happen to love the smell of a horse...

They are beautiful! I think it's very possible that you are in fact the horse whisperer :-)

Not necessarily just looking for food. Some horses are genuinely friendly and curious.
