Horsey Smile

I shot over 300 pictures and overstayed my welcome at our friends' horse farm yesterday. All of their horse were over 20 but looked spry and healthy to me. They had names like Flirt, Darby and Elastic. I am not much into the horse world, but learned lots about the unintended consequences of shutting down the horse 'glue' factories. Seems that people are just turning their old horses out into the wild...to face death by starvation. Grisly stuff. On the other hand, horses are expensive I don't know the answers. Just glad my friends have such big hearts and love to ride!

Bonus points to all you real horse people who can tell me what is unusual about this one. I'm chuckling here!

Later: What fun to read your thoughts and guesses! It is time for a huge hint.

Not every thing is as it appears.

Yes, horse farm.

Yes horsey smile.

But.....
