WPC: Extra, Extra


It is hard to put into words what the thing is about horses. What the extra different thing this animal possesses that hook some of us so incredibly hard. I live and work with them every day and am still in awe of the extra space these magnificent animals take in our hearts.

Three of my horses are gray. They stay close as possible through each day. In this light, they look like spirits. That might be the extra, extra part of them; the part just past the light.

WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo- I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.


  1. it doesn’t matter that your low photo is low tech with your noble subjects and your keen eye, it moved me with it’s beauty, with their beauty, rather fab, it’s like they really are spirits. The biggest horse from your photo looks right at me. they know you know. like dogs they feel our moods and sense where we are at. that’s why they help people that are hurting, those addicted or challenged physically. what a great lift to my day.

    • Nancy, he is the sort of horse who always makes eye contact, they don’t all do it. And yes, never met a horse or dog who didn’t ‘do therapy’. Thanks.
