Horsey tantrum

As horses go, this guy:

is Mister Personality.

 

He’s about the friendliest four-legged beast you’ll meet,

but has some trouble forgetting where your head is sometimes.

(Oh, was that your eye I just completely smacked?  Pardonnez moi)

 

Every once in awhile you’ll catch him in a bonafide sulk.

Oh trust me, cowgirls and boys… this is a true You’re Not Letting Me Have My Way fit.

 

Why?

 

Only because this guy mouths every.single.ever.loving.thing he can.

And I had finally had enough of him trying to separate my family heirloom wedding set from my hand.

 

(Yes, you know you’re addicted to blogging when you go for the shot first, then rescue your fingers…)

(You’re welcome)

That is just adorable! My German Shepherd pouts at me every day when I get home from work. If she looks really sad I will bring her inside with me and my guys call me a wimp! What can I say? I've always been a sucker for puppy dog eyes!

samurai loves jewelry. we just pop him in the nose and he gets all arabian on us and stomps off with his tail up then starts that gorgeous run with the neck arched and tail flying and I love it lol.

My little dog pull my hair when I try to kiss the child goodnight! Crazy animals!

Love the picture

LOVE the sulking shot! Oh, what a capture... he looks thoroughly ticked off at you! Great post... and I'm glad you escaped with all of your digits intact! (and look at you, with over 250 followers... wooo hoooo!)

Bwahahahaha! You're taking photos so you have a blog post. Too funny! As I was taking pictures at swim lessons today I was mentally writing a post in my head about the shots. :)

Kmama said...

LOL He sure is handsome though!

Brandi said...

Is this the same horse that... ahem... you had the boob incident with? He seems to have a serious oral fixation. Maybe he needs a horsey pacifier or something?? ;)

DB's step mom has horses. She posted a pic on her FB of one of her guys wearing a mask and snorkel, with a floaty around his neck, and flippers set in front of his front hooves (is that right? I almost typed 'feet' but they don't have feet) to look like he was wearing them. She called it 'Seahorse'... it was so funny. Horses definitely have personality.

Wow. That's a full "guess I'll go eat worms" pout!

Maybe he just wants the dentist to give him some "grill work" and was just after some bling.

AWW he's so handsome!! Gotta love them sulking big baby's!! Thanks for the loyalty ;) You can type one handed, right?!

Merri Ann said...

Those ears say it all :)) Just watch out for the "I'm really pissed off" tail switch. Me thinks he needs a binky.

Stacy said...

Yes I can tell he is p-oed at you LOL! Look at those ears laid back...that pout!

I've totally done the picture for the blog thing, too. It's a sickness really. ;)

Yes, yes, we are blogging nerds. I am currently trying to figure out how to post from my new phone by email, since blogger doesn't like our small-town cell phone carrier.

It always amazes me when people say that animals don't have personalities. I always tell them that they must have never been around animals!

He's so pretty!

semicrunchymama said...

LOL -- I love that you made sure to get a photo first! That's the sign of a true blogger!!

The photo of your horse sulking is just cracking me up! Why the long face? (I know, I know... ::groan:: I admit, that was pathetic, but I couldn't resist).

I'm just glad he didn't inadvertently snap that heirloom in half. Mouthy horses are normal, reminds me of my mouthy now 1 year old who cribs on his play pen just like a horse. ;)
