How about a little wild horse humor
People have been putting human thoughts and emotions, onto animals since forever. I am actually reading a book right now that talks a little about this, in relation to dogs.
I am very guilty of this when it comes to the horses. Watching their behavior you can actually see what they are thinking, or feeling based on observation. But the fun part can be when I look at some of my shots and I get a funny face, or expression, and I can’t help but give it a “human” meaning.
Take this shot, it looks like the one horse is laughing at something the serious horse said, or maybe just making fun of him.
I love when funny things happen, that make for an odd ball shot.
There are a few of these wild horse signs out on the range. Basically they say these are wild animals, don’t approach them, be respectful. But the horses, love to scratch on them. Their heads, their butts, everything.
This one loved the sign, a lot!!
So much, that she flipped it all the way around. And look at that face…contentment?
They lined up and waited their turn for the butt scratching.
The Old Guy, is of course old, but I watched him trot to this other sign ahead of his friend so he could get a good scratch.
This shot is a fraction of a second, and just one from a whole series of these two going at it. They looked like they were dancing, and this shot catches them maybe bowing to each other.
What would you say about this shot?
What about you, do you place your human thoughts and emotions on animals? I know for positive all you pet owners out there do, we can’t help ourselves.
