Equine Eyes

On a short jaunt to the party store today, I stopped by the park for a quick walk. Looking around, I noticed that there were horses under the big roof of the horse arena.

Great, and I have the proper lens on the Nikon too.

Of course, I asked permission to take these photos from the owners, a younger couple who were very nice, and definitely knew what they were doing with these big, powerful animals!

It’s those eyes that get me every time. Such big, beautiful eyes. They are powerful yet graceful animals that I love to watch run, gallop, and walk. Years ago, I tried riding a horse circa 1981.

I sucked at it apparently, as the horse reared up and almost ditched me! That’s good enough. Since those days, my horsepower comes in the form of a 4.3 litre V6!

  1. Very much so! The horses seemed small to me, certainly not ponies, but smaller than the normal size. I asked the gal there about this, she said the horses have been bred for this smaller size. The couple was really good at having the horses walk sideways, turn hard left and right, run then stop on a dime!
