He was dreaming so I gave him a new background!

Horses Are Typically Used
By Humans To Work or To Ride.

I Have Been Thinking About Horses Lately
And About Them Having Feelings.

As a City Girl All Of My Life
I have Never Known A Horse,
But I Have Recently Learned They Have
Great Capacity To Love and Enjoy Things,
To Be Affectionate...and I was thinking...
Perhaps to Dream?

I Dedicate This Image To:
Stacey Nagy
Who Inspired This DDR Work
Because Of Her Great Love For Horses,
And Concern and Help For The Ones Found Injured, Abandoned or Uncared For
*And Of Course To SSSKiki Who*
*Is A Great Lover and Helper Of Horses All Of Her Life, Too!*

Pom,I'm glad you made the photo with the dark (rather than white) vignette framing for your entry. It creates a somber mood, but that's what this is about, isn't it? Horses who dream, even as they perform/ work for people in some way. Who knows? Maybe next time around, they'll wonder if WE dream! #11094334

Hi Jeff, Terry, Jo Ann and Mare!

Mare you are so right. If we do have more than one life I hope horses can be humans so they can fly to Mexico! Heehee...

Loved all of your comments and I appreciate seeing you! xoxo

-Pommy, Laura :)

A beautiful Palomino, SSSister.
And you really caught his gentleness. Horses are sweet and gentle souls. Faithful too and so many other qualities.
I'm so glad you got to know one well enough to see this.
And you saw it in this one for sure.
I love what you did with this image. It's quite poetic. And I'm proud to have my name attached to it :) #11097323

I wanted to post another photo on this thread of the pretty horse for you, SSSKiki, but I guess we cannot do this anymore?? Whaaaaaa... Thank you for all the warm coments. When I took this the horse was actually in a field and had come to the fence to be petted. I never had met a friendly horse like this one before. :) THANK YOU SIS! :))) #11109845

Hi Steve! When I dream, I dream of the Ocean so I thought it would be a good enough dream for the pretty horse, too! :D I saw horses being ridden on the beach once and they looked happy and free there. Thanks for the visit! -Laura :) #11109847
