Here is a face only a mother could love! Can you read a horse? Can you read this horse? This is Jester. In this photograph, he is incredibly bothered. Hot, and bothered. Temperatures here in SC are 100 with a heat factor around 110 degrees. The horses are not very happy! Notice his ears? What ears? Almost flat against the back of his head. (Not happy). Look at his eyes. Intense or soft? Penetrating? Take a look below his eyes. A dark spot in his fur all around the eyes. Sweat... Salt.
OH, you noticed his nose! Soft? Round nostrils? Nope, I would have to say tight. Lips? Yea, you see his lips! Do you ever notice lips on a horse?
Doubt it. His lips are pursed. I call it his "pickle face."
Don't worry, he was given relief after I took this photo. A cool water hose down bath! Maybe, a few treats.... :)
