The grass is always greener


...on the other side of the fence. Tastes better, too!

Oh yeah!! dad gum horses!! I just this summer replaced the whole back fence--it looked sorta like the one pictured. It was a wood fence but had horse wire and was taller but they still do a number on it. Some horses are worse or better than others.

As for Polo--it might be fun to try. the playing field is so huge that where-ever one would sit your couldn't see all the action. To control your horse and swing that stick to hit a little ball would be hard to master. They wear leg guards from the foot to above the knees.

Regarding your title, is that why the neighbor's dog prefers my lawn?

fantastic capture!!

Don and Krise said...

You sure caught them. If they want it they will figure out a way won't they? I'm sure they'd be happy to help put the board back up after dinner.

Those are two handsome animals. Nice shot.

I always believed it, this is the proof. Great shot with a funny title and caption.

Paula said...

What a beautiful picture, so fresh and cool.

Eamon said...

Beautiful animals. The neck on the horse that is eating is wonderfully emphasised by her having to stretch over the fence. Will show this to Yasmin later - she adores horses!

Prospero said...

... and now, there's photographic evidence.

JM said...

That is a really beautiful image Jacob.
Well done.

Allison said...

Each time I look at your blog there's a new header! You're such a computer wiz, Jake. I love pictures of horses with their tails in motion! Beautiful!

Sorry, I must have sent your invitation for Anne's party to your old MN address. Now it's probably encased in ice and completely illegible...

B SQUARED said...

Certainly pays to have a long neck, too.

Jacob said...

@ Lee - Of course!

jusdealem said...

I'm with Lee, that's exactly why the neighbor's dog prefers our lawns. *sigh*

Beautiful horses. Perfect shot!

You need to do a blind taste test to be sure.

Cute pic!!

Jacob said...

@ Allison - Thanks. Re: Anne's invitation...I'll just wait 'til next summer when the ice melts and maybe we can find it then. Let's see, what day is that next year? July 1 or 2?

What a remarkable break-through, this comes handy now that I'm beginning my studies in Criminology. Motive, evidence, it's all here. Your Honor, the prosecution rests!

Leif Hagen said...

You are always horsin' around, Jacob Meister! Looks like a cool new twist on the Oscala blog. How do you like those "apples?"

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Very pretty--I did my master's thesis research on horses and love seeing them, nice capture.
