Horses in Late Afternoon

 YUM! Hay!

It was time for a late afternoon snack and this horse was "making  eating hay while the sun shines." This time of year the sun doesn't shine a whole lot over central Ontario so...


horses have gotta be quick to eat in the sun.


Although one did check out what the photographer was up to and...


another decided to take a closer look.

I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.

So I guess some horses are more cold-natured than others and that's why some wear coats and some don't? :-)

The jacket-less horse has a beautiful colour!

The sun helps the photos too -- ay least a little every now and then. 😄

You had some great light here...beautiful horses, but why is that one nude? Poor thing!

They're curious critters, aren't they?

Absolutely beautiful shots of the horses feeding in the sun of late of afternoon ~

Happy Holidays to you,

Judy said...

Such a beautiful shot! The horse in the first picture must wear a blanket at night too because the coat isn't as thick as it would be if not. These pictures bring back such sweet memories.

Sandra said...

the horse coming to see you has a blaze that looks like a cross on his head.. smiled at the one with his head buried deep in the hay.. i assume the first horse chose not to wear his coat that day

Sylvia K said...

Ah, I do love horses!! Had two of my own for years and they were Arabians! Still miss them! Wonderful captures for the day as always!

Jenny said...

Horses always seem to enjoy their food so much. Just makes you happy to watch them.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Something about horses make them very photogenic. Nice shots.

Andrea Priebe said...

I am sure he was thinking you might have something better than hay to offer ... they are all beautiful. I hope being coatless isn't an issue ... it does look cold out there.

These horses are gorgeous! And so well taken care of. I wish MY winter coat looked this good...

So did the photographer have an apple or merely the promise of a pat? They are beautiful EG and such a lovely light too!
