    I do not like the way his ears are pinned. IMO, I would never let an animal invade my space like that

    Need a could go either way.

    Which is what I think. At this point it seems more as if horse is just investigating for lack of better term, but may be considering a nip?

    And a stupid position to be in with no control of horse to begin with IF this horse is not very very well known to her.

    I don't see either aggression or play.

    I see cautious curiousity. To me, the horse is tense, checking out the woman, and could either finally relax or suddenly flee depending on what the woman does.

    It looks like she found a shiny penny, she bent down to pick it up because it reminded her of her great grandpappy. She started to cry because she thought of pennies from heaven. Out of no where a wild horse came over and licks the baby food off her shoulder from her grandbaby from this morning that she had to unexpectantly babysit cause momma had a hang over. Hows that for a read?

    I'm afraid I have to sit on the fence too as not sure
    I'm not seeing real aggression there but I am seeing a horse that maybe looks bored with the game and so it could go that way
    She's as at much risk of getting trampled if it suddenly spooks - and even quiet horses can do that

    I thought the horse's ears weren't quite right for showing aggression but rather more of a look of trying to figure out the interaction between the two of them and how he can benefit from it - so I went with play.

    I didn't vote. First impression is curious horse.

    I would go more for play, being just the 2 options. Ears are not pinned back, yes they are back, but more of a curious back, not pinned to it's neck.

    If you have one of those scrolly mouses and you hold down CTRL, you can zoom in. The eyes aren't soft, they seem tense, the ears aren't entirely pinned but they're not in neutral either. Nose isn't soft it seems drawn back. The frontal stance doesn't look cautious but more bold.
