Just one of those horses

February 22nd, 2013 by Rebekka in Uncategorized

Hi again…
Ive often wished that at some point my sad little blog would pick itself up, dust itself off and become one of those daily affairs people check in on over their morning coffee, alongside their fix of facebook,  cracked.com and buzzfeed updates on what famous person did what to who and how or why.  As those people who actually read my irregular postings can attest to, this blog is not that sort of blog.  This is through no small fault of the blogs writer, a master procrastinator with a flair for attempting to do many things at once and failing to complete most of them until many months later, if at all.
So, without further ado, or pretending my blog is anything other than a place for me to post outtakes and make announcements,  I’ll move on to todays order of business:
Sharing with you some pictures of a pregnant white horse I once met: 

That picture above was posted on flickr in 2008,  and appears in my book about horses, and it would not be entirely crazy to assume that was just one of those silly moments horses are sometimes caught having:

However, after reviewing all other photos of this particular animal, it seems apparent that this was just one of those silly horses nobody keeps hearing about:


To be fair, she had just woken up, and was most likely having one hell of a yawning fit, but it’s more fun to imagine this is just the happiest mare in the world.

Thanks for the laughs. I imagined she was laughing a lot, too!

Ah Rebekkah, I love these splendid creatures and ‘their behind the camera moments’ that you hung around to capture so lovingly. X

Great pics and I really love your work. What an fantastic character that horse! :)

Thanks, these pictures really made me smile on a not so good day! It’s nice to read something from you again! I can relate to the part of wanting/trying to juggle many differnt things at once, I do it, too.
Cheers, and have a nice weekend :)

So cute!! I love where she’s scratching her head.

Well… some of us check your blogpost as soon they are posted… and perhaps even have an automatic notification added to Google Reader :)

I love in the 1st picture how the dark horse looks like a shadow for the one beside it.

I do believe all of the concepts you have introduced to your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for newbies. May you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
