Horses.

(I’m writing this from the surgical waiting room of a Norfolk hospital; Steve and I are here to sit with one of our church families whose 88-year mom is undergoing a long and difficult surgery.  We’re always honored to be invited to share these kinds of difficult days with our church folks.) 


Yesterday’s bike ride took me by a field of horses.  I don’t see horses just everyday in my life so I had to stop for a few minutes to take a closer look at the Manteo Equine Population.
They seemed really excited to see me.

Or not.

I really like this picture because of the way the tail is flaring out in the sun; unfortunately though, some sort of alien glow has taken up residence in this horse’s stomach and I have no idea why it’s there.  We may need to take it to the vet for an Alien Glow-Ectomy.  (Or maybe I just should clean my camera lens.)

Oh look!  The glow has move to the horse’s head. This is serious, folks! A very serious, medical Horse Condition called Congenital Acute Chronic Pathological Pulmonary Idiopathic Moving Alien Glow Syndrome.

Ah.  Good news!  A few Alien Glow-less horses have shown up.  I think that bodes well for the Manteo Equine Population.

I just love the way the tail is swooshing.  And yes, swooshing is an Official Manteo Equine Population Technical Term.

Looking at pictures like these makes me feel so peaceful.

Horses are one of God's greatest and most noble and loyal and intelligent creations - my daughter has 100's of horse photos and they are glorious. Her favorite saying is "If you are having a bad day, hug your horse. It will immediately be better." She had to give her horse away a few months ago - she rescued him from a racetrack about 6 years ago - he was and still is her very best friend - he was her second horse, she rescued her first one from a field - CeCe is her special Chestnut Mare friend - she retired CeCe to a farm in Georgia when her legs gave out - my daughter would not be who she is today if it was not for her passion and love of horses - I hope and pray that someday she will be able to have another one to love as her very own. She deserves it.

Always enjoying the wedding photos also, Becky. Keep them coming.

The "glow" is a refection of the sun within your lens. A lens hood is helpful with this, or even sheltering your lens with your hand.
