The Expressive Horse

For anyone who thinks horses are expressionless animals... I just had to upload these - it is myself and Danny Boy, our much loved 22 year old connemara enjoying a scratch. His expressions are priceless. We took these this morning - enjoy

I love the faces they make when you hit just the right spot! :) beautiful boy you have there :)

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

I would probably dedicate a portion of every single day just to scratch him and see those faces!! What a silly boy, you must be a heck of an itchy-killer!

I love when you find a horse's itchy spot. :) Rebel's is on his withers, Ruger's on his chest, Selena's under her chin, and Jester's on his neck. Your pony is just so adorable.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
