  1. Beautiful image of a beautiful creature. Serene. Calming. Thank you!
    Re out-of-the-barn … that just puts one into somewhere-else … and in any where-ever there will be a desire to be elsewhere … (though perhaps a Montana Dental Floss tycoon would be too engrossed-exhausted in his “barn” to look outward?)

    1. Thanks Jazz, Yippee-Ki-Yay. 🤠 By the way the expression means its useless to complain after the fact, i.e., it doesn’t matter who left the gate open because the horse is already out of the barn.

        1. That horse is there all day all year. He’s probably thrilled to pull a plow now and then and he has camels for company in the summer. I’m sure he’s a happy camper. Its nice that you’re concerned for him Jazz but I meant the photo as a metaphor for the current state of affairs.

          1. So did I, actually … from the current state of confined-to-my-house by state edict … I was vicariously enjoying the horse’s fresh air …
            I definitely get the drift of your intended meaning as well …
            Cheers!

    1. Thanks Patti, I reread our stay and home order and it seems that photography is not consider an essential activity. So this might be my last outdoor photo for a while.

  2. It’s a great looking horse because it’s a great looking photo. OCpD. Sad. “I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name… It felt good to be out of the rain…” –America

  3. We have a horse pasture nearby my home. They are beautiful creatures as they are out grazing and typically they will saunter over to the fence to let me stroke their silky smooth faces. Of course, once they realize I don’t have an apples or carrots they soon saunter right back where they came from 😊. A lovely choice for the week despite the ominous secondary message Mike.
