Horses gone wild

It was a quiet, peaceful summer's evening. The farmer and his wife were sitting by the pond, enjoying the cooler temperature and each other's company. 
The dogs were milling about, the geese were showing off, the rooster was strutting his stuff. Everything was as per usual.

Suddenly, the quiet was interrupted. What was that? It was a thudding sound, coming closer. 
And closer. 
And closer. It also got louder. What the...?

The horses are coming!
This is the face of one startled dog. (No worries, nobody got hurt.)
 Quick rest.

They came, ran, and disappeared again. It was like a small hurricane. Watching horses run is a beautiful experience. They didn't run out of fear, but because they love doing it. It is the ultimate example of freedom and unbridled joy

  1. The horses and their photography, are lovely!

  2. You are a brave lady I would have been making the same face of the dog and getting out of dodge!

  3. First of all, the horses are amazing - I'm so jealous! I love horses and it would be so neat to see them one day!!

    Also, I'm absolutely cracking up at the picture of a surprised dog. That face is priceless :)

  5. The Horses are absolutely beautiful! the look on your dogs face is priceless.

  6. Gorgeous photos!!! There is something so free and beautiful about running horses. Is there a more graceful animal? Probably not.
