Your Monday Photo Shoot: Horses!

"It's like nuts and bolts. If the rider's nuts, the horse bolts."

-Nicholas Evans

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Horses are nice. Show us a horse picture you've taken. It can be new, or one from your files. It just needs to have a horse in it. Donkeys, mules, ponies, zebras and quagga are also acceptable, and I'll be impressed if you have a picture of a quagga in your files, being that they have been extinct 125 years and all.

I like horses, I don't get a chance to see them up close very often, but every May, Alan and I go to Castro Valley to watch the Rowell Ranch Rodeo Parade. There are always a lot of very pretty horses, and lovely ladies to ride them, such as the current Miss Rowell Ranch Rodeo, Anna Bavor.

Madonna Inn, San Luis Obispo, California

John didn't say it had to be a REAL horse...LOL...so here is a fine example of a fake horse. I couldn't find out any information on it, but I saw it at the world famous Madonna Inn, in San Luis Obispo, California. I bet there is a mysterious tale about this horse and it's rider, but if there isn't I will someday make one up! LOL. How does the title, "Stiff In The Saddle," grab ya? Tee Hee.

Note: Just as a matter of fact, this entry marks my 365th entry on this journal. A year's worth of postings, in a little over 10 months! :) Whew! :)
