Reading horses.... Is this a horse who is having fun? Is she playing? Is she happy? Or, is this a power play?
"I am a horse that can pretend to be something else behind my wild hair." Look deeper and you will find a horse that needs a human who is in charge. "Jester" is a master of being in charge and will test his owner (me) every time I greet him. It is interesting to me to have to put my mind set into the feeling of "DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONAL." He is who he is. What I have come to love is the fact that after counter acting his "actions" to me, he hands over the alpha crown asap to me. Then, all is at peace in the world. Until, the next day, the next test...
Oh, how I love my horse Jester!

Mesmerizing to me. Love the highlights of the sun in the mane. Love the start of the winter coat. Interesting blur to the hind end! Cool fall colors in the back woods. What is he thinking? Where is his mind? Day dreaming?
COPIED FROM WIKIPEDIA
"The flehmen response (English pronunciation: /ˈfleɪmən/, German: [ˈfleːmən]), also called the flehmen position, flehmen reaction, flehming, or flehmening (from German flehmen, meaning to curl the upper lip), is a particular type of curling of the upper lip in ungulates, felids, and many other mammals, which facilitates the transfer of pheromones and other scents into the vomeronasal organ, also called the Jacobson's organ.
In the flehmen response, animals draw back their lips in a manner that makes them appear to be "grimacing" or "smirking". The action, which is adopted when examining scents left by other animals either of the same species or of prey, helps expose the vomeronasal organ and draws scent molecules back toward it. This behavior allows animals to detect scents, for example from urine, of other members of their species or clues to the presence of prey. Flehming allows the animals to determine several factors, including the presence or absence of estrus, the physiological state of the animal, and how long ago the animal passed by. This particular response is recognizable, for example, in stallions when smelling the urine of a mare in heat. To detect estrus the male giraffe's flehman response includes the actual taste-testing of the female's urine."
Oh wow, what an enchanting photo. If you are a horse wise person, that is. If you are not, let me tell you about this photograph. The horse is so relaxed.. (number one). Number two would be that you see the woman's finger's in the mouth of the horse. OK, well, not a great idea with a horse you do not know. DO NOT DO THIS!
This photo shows a huge bond, a huge trust with the owner and horse.
Ok, a secret here... if you get to this point, where your horse trusts you enough to do this, OH MY GOSH!
That lip on the horse is the softest thing in the world. Have you ever felt how soft it is ri
But, when you are in the "moment" feeling it, it will take you to somewhere you will not imagine! Time is
not in the picture. Time, is the PRESENT.
OH, how I love, the PRESENT!!
Taming the wild... Maybe, just sometimes, the horse should be left untamed? This guy is magnificent. Just look at his eyes. If you see his eyes, you see his brain/smarts. SO incredible. If a horse (if he) could trust me... I would feel I conquered the world. He is magnificent. OH, I said that, didn't I?
Ok, if you are following, you have seen the beautiful photographs from my shoot with Kendra and Suzette. Sometimes, just, SOMETIMES - you go back and find a gem that you missed. So, I said to myself, "oh my gosh!" Borrego is actually kissing his owner Kendra! No doubt in what you see in the photo.... whaddya think? AGree??? let me know!

I had the best photo shoot today with two beautiful women and their horses/partners! Kendra DeKay with her horse Borrego, and Suzette Meyers with her horse Doc! Here is a teaser photo before I post the album! Below is Kendra and her horse Borrego! I think it should be the cover of a romance novel!! :) Hope you like it!
Amore my young, young, did I say "young" (in character) is a manipulative, coniving, smart, dog. She actually
"thinks" I am not kidding. If I go out of the kitchen area where she is at, she uses the chance to go from "happily eating rawhide dog" to "what can I get into before that human comes back." She will sit on my computer chair and actually type nonsense into the computer, she has taken a yellow highlighter and drawn all over the kitchen floor. While she is with me, she has stunts that astound me. Like, jumping, WHILE RIDING, next to me in a Kawasaki mule (like a golf cart)
OVER the top of the front end. Yes, while I am driving. To her, this is fun. Playing ball? That's borrrrrrriiiiinnnggggg.
