A horse, of course

A horse, of courseTwo horses graze a pasture in Pontotoc County outside of Ada, OK.

Kerby hollered at me to look outside because our neighbors horses had come all the way to the fence, which she says is unusual. 

Of course, I took this as a chance to go pester them by putting a camera in their faces. Joking, kind of.

After climbing through the barbed wire fence, I was careful not to scare the horses. I didn’t think I would because I was sure they were used to people, but you can never be too careful when dealing with half-ton animals. That’s my motto, at least.

So, I never got too close and always made sure I moved gently and stayed in their line-of-sight. But twice when I was kneeling down, one of the horses came up to me and put his face inches from mine and harshly exhaled. I’m not familiar with the body language of horses, but I assumed he was just curious about what I was doing. 

The lingering doubts, however, kept me from firing any more shots off with the horse in such proximity. 

I double checked online and confirmed that the horse was only checking things out, so next time I’ll fire away.
