I See Wild Horses!!!!


YES!!! So much for looking for them in the mornings. They showed up yesterday afternoon in the dunes to the side of the house! I leaped up and ran out there to see them! I’d just taken the dogs for a walk in the surf and a big wave had surprised me and gotten my clothes wet. I had taken my shorts off and put them in the laundry, so I was waiting for the dryer to be done…..

And yes, you know where this is going. I had no pants on. THIS DID NOT STOP ME from running outside with my camera, despite the fact that there were other people around. I DID NOT CARE. There were wild horses, people! Wild horses! This is the baby.

There were four of them, three adults and one baby. They stayed in the dunes to the side of the house quite a while, chomping on the grasses, then strolled out toward the beach road between the homes. I was able to get pretty close to this one.

My daughter, who takes horseback riding lessons, was thrilled. Here she is trying to creep up to one of them.

When they were done at our house, they wandered off down the beach road to look for more grass……..

And I went inside to put pants on.:mrgreen:

  5. Joely says:

    Oh, they’re wonderful! How cool!!!

  6. Rene says:

    Are these the Misty of Chincoteague horses? I remember reading that book as a child and thought it was so cool.

  7. kacey says:

    What fun for your daughter! I bet she was thrilled! So neat that you finally got to see them.

  8. ArmyWifeToddlerMom says:

    strangely, the horses look like they are posing, they must be used to getting photos taken,….

  9. Marcy says:

    How cool! :hyper:

    And I wasn’t at all surprised to find you pantless. At this point, I’d be shocked to find you fully clothed! :rotfl:

  10. Melissa Marsh says:

    OOHHHHHH, I love those pics! What beautiful horses! So glad you got to see them!

  11. Mik says:

    AAWWWW! They are so pretty! πŸ™‚

  12. Nickie says:

    THIS IS AWESOME! How cool!

  13. Amy K. says:

    The horses are beautiful…and I’m really concerned about your pants deal. :hyper:

  14. Emma S says:

    Obviously you should just go pantsless more often.

  15. Cynthia says:

    OMG! The horses are beautiful! I’ve been a horse lover since I was a little girl…wanted one in my backyard, but unfortunately, we lived in the city, so my parents vetoed that idea real quick. LOL.

  16. Kelly says:

    All right! They’re beautiful…wow. It must be awesome to see them in person.

  17. Tori says:

    They’re so pretty!!! And they immediately reminded me of Misty of Chincoteague (though I think that was in Virginia… ah, after checking the atlas, yes it is). Anyway. Bet they’re the same type of horses. πŸ™‚

    And I’m not the slightest bit surprised you went out without any pants. :rotfl:

  18. Christine says:

    that’s so awesome!!!!!!!!! i luv horses :love:

  19. Jordan says:

    That’s wonderful. The one looks like it’s ready to foal.

  20. Lis says:

    So glad you got to see them. They’re so beautiful! Wonderful pictures :thumbsup:

  21. Toni Anderson says:

    They look beautiful–and that one looks decidedly preggers :love:

  22. Eve says:

    Awww, Emma took my line! I’m not surprised you had your pants off – so I guess next time you want something, you’ll just take your pants off?:wigglebrow:

  23. Robyn says:

    Wow, beautiful horses and excellent pictures. Lucky you>:bananadance:

  24. Cheryl S. says:

    Ohh . . . how beautiful. Glad you got to see them, Suzanne! πŸ™‚

  25. Danica says:

    That’s so awesome that you got to see them! I need to take my daughter there, she loves horses.

  26. Ashley says:

    How pretty! I’d love to get to see them sometime. I want to go see the running of the ponies one year..

  27. Peggy says:

    Ohhhh, FABULOUS! I headed over to your blog thinking, “I wonder if Suzanne has seen her wild horses yet?”. And you did! How wonderful!

  28. Lori says:

    Yeah!! You got to see the horses. Now you need to log in the guestbook that the best way to convince them to visit is to run around pantless.

  29. Michelle says:

    Awww! Don’t you just love them? They’re so beautiful. πŸ™‚

  30. ruby55 says:

    :bananadance: Yippee! You saw them! I’m so pleased for you. I’d love to see them too. I still have a whole bunch of children’s horse stories.

    It would have been so πŸ™ if you hadn’t seen them. I bet it made your day or even week. Are they really smaller than the average horse? I really love those pictures.

  31. Teresa says:

    I’m catching up from my absence and how exciting to see and be so close to those wild horses! You trip sounds wonderful and is making me jealous. But if I can’t be out there I’m at least glad you’re posting pics.:thumbsup:

  32. MartyK says:

    Great pictures–how rewarding! Glad you don’t let your clothing or lack thereof hold you back.

  33. Julia says:

    WOW! Great pictures! Thanks for posting them. Wild horses are so beautiful!

  34. Carol Burnside says:

    Congrats on seeing the horsies! But I’m beginning to see a disturbing trend with the lack of pants. Hmmm…
