Horse's panic stricken face (need a picture)

Right guys,
I need your help. It's not super important, but, I need to show my friend a picture of a horse pulling a "beak" face. Like, when it's anxious it pulls this face where it sticks its top lip out and juts its chin in the air and it's lip looks like a beak. A behaviour, such as rearing, or bolting, usually follows. I'm having great difficulty finding one on the internet.

Some horses also pull this face when they're having a scratch, or when they're concentrating on something. I've also seen it a few times with a foal being taught to lead, and it's just point blank refusing and just pulling this daft face!

Has anybody got such a picture of a horse pulling this "beak" face?

Many thanks,
Holly

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Oh good grief. That's the face, just wish I hadn't have seen like that... What an absolutely disgusting picture...

It was on a previous thread. I've never seen the beak face without scratching an itchy spot (thankfully) or maybe I have but haven't noticed because of the impending freak-out that I know is coming.

Regardless, that white horse has the panic/pain beak. I guess that's how they ship horses in Indonesia.

Here's one that's not quite so dramatic. Beak face on the buckskin, "stink" face on the gray LOL.


Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

ilovepets, that picture was already posted here a couple days ago by someone else. It wasn't necessary, but the OP asked for a panic face. Not a "feel good" face. That was the only one I've ever seen, and it was recent so I reposted for picture references.

The horses are alive. Not sure what they are being shipped for.
