What no carrots or apples. Darn.
They must be horses of a different color; cannot imagine not feeding them goodies.
How funny! I wonder why? Maybe they were overindulging on sugar cubes.
Awwww....I would love to at least pet them. :) Great photo, Lowell.
Sound advice. I remember a horse that died from diabetes like this.
I'm guessing, by the lack of horses, that photographing them is banned too?! ;-)
I wonder if that was a problem, i.e. people stopping to feed someone else's horse.
:(but...can we take pictures, right?:)Léia
Where are the horses?
I wonder what prompted the need for that sign. I like your advice the best.
I understand perfectly. That can become a problem if the area has a lot of foot traffic. I once caught a teenager on my horses back in the corral. I was not a happy camper.
Good advice. You pet-you get bit-I get sued!!! Not that my horses would bit you----but then again. MB
I can imagine that you wouldn't want people feeding junk to your horses, especially the high-end horses you have down there.
I would like to at least pet them. I can understand the feeding part, as people sometimes give unhealthy things. By the way, Lowell, the photo in my blog post was a family of young deer. I can see, though, how one would think they were something else, as they were kind of far from me even though I zoomed in on them. Guess they were spooked by the upcoming heavy rain. :)
Do not feed the horses? Ok, I understand... but... do not pet the horses? Why not, are they toxic???
UH oh! Okie dokie, but I hate eating an apple in front of a hungry horse.
I was taking pictures of some (beautiful!) shire draft horses here and two people from the farm came racing out to make sure that I wasn't feeding them. They've had lots of problems. People have fed them all kinds of junk, probably whatever they happened to have in their car. I'm guessing that two day-old tuna sandwiches, french fries, stale pizza don't agree with horses. And much like my labrador, horses are always hungry and always eat whatever's on offer.
The beaver is on the coat-of-arms since it is the official animal of Canada. And you're right, it probably stems from the fur trade which was a major industry when the country was first settled.
