she wanted a carrot, some sugar, at least some spring grass

i had not known i would see her and had nothing with me but my camera.
her disappointment was palpable.
(i know what you're thinking, my friends, but the grass was too short to pull)

I like the way she's looking at you! She seems to be an indian horse, with those white spots on her back. Lovely encounter!

I meet horses every week and I never remember to bring them apples or carrots. But I think they like us anyway!

Great horse. I am sure Jarart of Prescotte Area Daily Photo,, who is Sharon's sister, will love this, as she is a horse person.

Thank you for your question yesterday about the reasons to buy a condo in Costa Rica. I left a long answer.

Such beautiful and warm eyes! This is a great portrait!

Horses, like dogs, have been domesticated for so long that they seem to have a genetic affinity for people. Beautiful eyes.

I feel like I'm being watched by a giant four-legged piece of chocolate!

Did she at least get a good nose rubbing? Beautiful and serene eyes.

Now you know what you need to take with you at all times. In the end, should you not make another encounter like this one, you can enjoy an apple and a carrot at 4:00. Lovely portrait!

Jacob said...

She forgives you! And you took her picture for which she so gently posed. And now she's famous.

I heard she was so happy, she spent all day just horsing around!

In Real Life said...

She's magnificent! I love how you composed this photo! You have such an artistic flare!

Bob Crowe said...

Such eye contact - the image immediately made me think of Mr. Ed.

slim said...

Send her to Quincy. Our grass is long enough to pull a good clump. I like the way you cropped this.

Carraol said...

Beautiful disappointment look, its a pity you don't had an apple with you.

Kate said...

So many of us are attracted to animals, and horses are incredibly beautiful creatures. This one looks so soulfull (or disappointed, as you mention)!

Amin said...

Wonderful photo.
