My husband has a lot of horses. They live out in a pasture, doing what horses do all day long; eat. The brood mares (mama horses who just have babies) are a bit on the wild side and my husband is really the only person who ever gets very close to them. (He ain’t scared.) But I have noticed that horses (especially colts) are very curious, so they will get close to me as long as I don’t make any sudden movements to scare them away. I have also noticed that they are tremendous hams for the camera:
I can just hear the mama telling her baby, “Stand up straight and look towards the camera.”
Every time I raise the camera to take a picture, they seem to strike a pose. Or maybe they are just doing the hokey pokey:
“You put your left foot in, you put your left foot out…” Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but I don’t think so. Do they practice posing all day when nobody is around?
Or do they just do it for me, because I am holding a camera?
This next one CRACKS ME UP…there is nothing cuter than baby horse teeth:
Now here’s a nice pose. Cheek to Cheek and Picture Perfect:
