Polarized, divided, uncooperative.
In this second week of November it seems we are no closer to seeing eye to eye than we were a week ago.
One side is down in the dumps and thinks they should just pack up their halter and move to another pasture. One where hard work is rewarded with carrots that are earned by the work of your own hooves.
The other side is all up on their high horse about their recent victory and believes that they are entitled to have alfalfa delivered to their stables whether they ever pulled a cart or not.
The truth is all this “self-made” self righteousness and hard work is exhausting.
I like winning, but the truth is that if you left the pasture there would be no one to disagree with.
I love this pasture, and I wouldn’t mind some help every now and then, maybe I have earned it. I wouldn’t want to loose the stable over my head just because of a bad case of colic.
I love this pasture too. It’s not like I don’t want to work, I do. I don’t mind pulling my weight.
If we all just pull together we can make this pasture a better place for everyone!
What lovely photos… horses just seem to do it for me, wish I could get captures of this standard… and love the commentary… lovely post..
Thanks so much! The light was exceptional this day, the horses did the hard part:)
Lori, this is beautiful. I stumbled my way here via your birdfeeder shot… fantastic stuff – you are certainly a gifted photographer.
Thanks Laura!I appreciate that. My mom started me shooting when I was a kid, I’ve always been grateful that she got me into it.
Clever – and beautiful photos.
A lovely story with deeper meaning!
Not too deep – Just a couple horsing around 🙂
The makings of a great children’s book, I say! with deeper meaning. 🙂
Amen, sister! Beautiful ♥
Wonderful images. Reminds me I must try and get up to my brother’s country property to photograph their horses again.
Thanks – I was out trying to catch the last of the color when I happened upon them – sturdy boys.
stunningly beautiful photos to describe something way too familiar in our political animal kingdom.
Thanks – too bad there wasn’t an elephant and a donkey in the pasture 🙂
A story doesn’t always have to use words. Great images!
Thanks – so true.

She’s got it going on too. As always, terrific shots and I think what you wrote is absolutely brilliant!!
Thanks – I love the Green Study – one sharp cookie. Those two old horses just cracked me up – standing there like Hamilton and Burr.
Well, they were great inspiration! The spotted one is my favorite. Is he Hamilton or Burr?
Oh – he’d have to be the liberal – I think that would be Burr, although I have always thought, politics aside, that Burr was the bad guy. I like him best too – so unusual.
Okay – I was hoping their was 2 horses – phew! Happy Tuesday:)
It takes two to tango 🙂
Completely reassuring — you had me going!
