FROM A HORSE'S POV


Ambling yet focused inching her way up the driveway to daycare ~~ 


Sophie shrieks ~~
"Oh Mary I haven't seen you for a whole week!
Do you want to dance?"


"What is it with dogs anyway?
Can't they ever be calm for just once", says Topaz.


"You would think this view would be enough to relax
those canines when they arrive here."


"But I stare in bewilderment ~~


just like my buddy on the other side of the building."


"Just a month ago 
Sophie was a super calm DOODLE GPS-ing that clump of grass 
while I sniffed my barren patch."


"I think she has come along way 
since her super young days
nipping at my hooves 
without fear, at all"


"I have stories that I won't even tell Mary,
just between me and Sophie Girl."


The Dads took off and visited the exhibition
at the museum in Halifax ~~




I know I'd be super keen on this photo montage
because well, I think it's self-explanatory.


I guess Jim was quite impressed with the number of photos
and the feeling of awe and serenity
that overtook him and Ron.







The exhibit is on until October 13
and should not be missed
(especially if you are a horse lover).
Topaz here, over and out!

    1. Topaz is one fortunate horse but a bit of a rascal!

      Sophie tries to egg Topaz on but nothing ever comes of it!

  3. I'm glad the Sable Island horses are protected. We have wild horses in southern Alberta too but people poach them to sell to dog food manufacturers.

    1. These horses have been for a couple 100 years ~~ I just can't imagine how they survive / birth / sustenance ~~~ incomprehensible!

      It costs close to $3000 to visit which is a good thing ~~ less humans less degradation!

  4. A new movie: "Dances with Horses... And Anyone Else." What joyous and spectacular pictures.

  5. Hi Ron! I started to comment on this fun post just before dinner last night, but things cooked faster than I anticipated! Time and I have well-known issues! LOL I can see that Nova Scotia is in the grip of full on summer! That first photo is lush with green ~ just beautiful! It was fun to see you write from another animal's point of view, and I enjoyed hearing about the Sable Island Horse exhibit. How cleverly you pulled them together! Have a happy day!

    1. Sophie made me do it ~~~ she said Horsey POV or else!

      Hey you'd love the exhibit when you arrive here. Do consider it!

      I might just go back again!

    2. I was thinking I'd love it! I am fascinated with horses, even though I have a number of traumatic memories associated with them. More went on with me than the racetrack stables burning down in Charlottetown! Have a great day, Ron!

  6. Oh Ron, I love everything about this post! I too wonder how wild horses survive. I actually worked with a wild horse in my younger years, and he turned out great. He came from the desert of Nevada - very tough living conditions.
    Love the photo of Sophie overjoyed to see Mary.

    1. I thought that I might have hit a sweet chord with you Terry!

      I just saw a friend of a friend returned from Sable Island. Pictures were on FB so now I know people do go. The cost is prohibitive though!

  8. The photo exhibit looks really fascinating. It's amazing that the horses can survive and thrive on that tiny strip of an island.

    1. It blows us away too, Pat ~ literally the winds are intense I suspect.

      Some day if the pennies all add up we will go!

    1. You would be closer to the NYC exhibit, so if you are ever there take full advantage of it!

  10. Are those prints on aluminium? I just had one of my shots printed on aluminium and absolutely love it. I bought it as a gift and now don't want to part with it.

    1. YES Stew, these are all on aluminum and the result is phenomenal. We kept moving from side to side to catch different angles and light effects.

      Loved it so much!
