Horses and children
This is a good photo of how much my thoroughbred loves children. Notice his eyes at half-mast. I honestly don't know if most, few, or almost all horses are like this. I know Johnnie is not particularly careful about kids and will pull their hats off & run, but Montana would stand still in the barn aisle while little ones wander around and through his legs on demo days; he also stood still to have all his body parts labeled with post-it notes by Pony Club kids, and never looked happier.
This is also a good photo for showing what a poor photographer I am. I don't have the camera eye; I did not see that giant telephone pole shadow at all.
Here's another photo which makes the same point: notice one little detail I did not see, and believe it or not I waited until Johnnie was posed right for this one - a lunch break in the Black Hills. Relax, John! I'm learning a lot from looking at the beautiful photos on some other folks' blogs though; there is hope.
