all creatures big & small {34/52}

Although the picture makes him seem like a full-sized stallion, this handsome guy is a miniature horse. Cutest thing ever and I couldn’t resist pulling my truck over to have a little chat.


It made me sad to have the fence in this shot. Hell, the entire photo has a sad sort of quality to it, but I swear he was the happiest little guy, with over an acre of land all to himself. When I pulled over to the side of the road, he was high up on a hill but came trotting as soon as he spotted me, tail swishing side to side. He had a kind of playful canter, I swear.

Next time, I’m bringing him some apples.

And some bug spray. Poor thing.

I took a whole load of photos this week, but I’m exhausted so I’ll leave them to my flickr stream for now. I may come back and add them at some point during the week, but if you’re interested in seeing them right now, you can find them here in my flickr stream.
Being that it’s Sunday night, I have me a date with some vampires ;)

    Jan! I love this shot! I totally get what you’re saying, it looks like he’s a prisoner. I love that he came over when he saw you. This photo just made my night.

    This is a beautiful image…the fence is almost like a frame and a definite contrasting color to the horse. Really beautiful!
