I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

Looking for Something to Do



I remember the day I took this photo. This horse looked so bored and really enjoyed the visitors that came to see him. He (I assume he) had a large area to roam but just looked like he was in need of a friend. It was really warm this day, unseasonably warm for October in Michigan. We are talking mid eighties for the temperature, it was the end of October when we are lucky to have mid seventies. This shot was an achievememt for me because he really didn't want to cooperate with my efforts to take his picture.

Cool shot of the horse. Animals can be very uncooperative sometimes.

What a beautiful horse! I love your photo! Glad you stopped by. P.S. Reading is a bit slow at the moment - garden taking priority. Still managing a few pages a day though. Thanks for asking. :)

I find horses are so unimpressed by photogasphers. Noq, if you had a carrot in your hand, THAT might be interesting. ;-)

Kittilicious said...

Oooohhh I really love the angle of this shot! Gorgeous!

Gretchen said...

He is beautiful!

Dick said...

Nice picture, thanks for your visit.

CrazyCath said...

Aaaah beautiful palomino(I think). Beautiful anyway.
Great shot considering he did not want to co-operate. Horses are not daft and if they don't want their photo took, what you usually get is a great shot of a bum! So congrats on this.

For The People said...

Cute shot. I am not so sure that horses are not man's best friend! I do love them both though!

Inland Empire Girl said...

I love this picture and your collection on your blog. This is a site of photo inspiration for me.

Aileni said...

Horses, it sems to me, are always keen to have company which is why they like having a donkey friend. Have you ever seen that in Michigan?

Lara said...

what a beautiful creature! maybe it is a star, and that's why it didn't cooperate :)!

Heart of Rachel said...

It's a lovely horse. Horses are sociable animals and they need company of friends.

Thanks for visiting my other blog.

Lovely horse!!

Marcos Santos said...

This would be of civilization without our friend horse ...

Marigold said...

Pretty horse. My daughter, who is only 8, told me that stable owners usually have cats in the barn to keep the horses company. Who knew! Thank you for your comments about Daisy.

momof4 said...

I love the shot of the horse. He does look a little sad and lonely. Hopefully they got him a friend. Horses are just so beautiful, one of my favorite animals, dolphins are my first.
