These guys live about a mile from me and I pass them going to and from work everyday. They live in a residential area that seems almost rural even though it’s in central Phoenix, close to the freeway, major shopping, and busy streets.



I haven’t been around horses much in a very long time so I forgot that they are curious animals, too, and these two bounded over to check me out…maybe hoping I had a tasty snack for them but I didn’t.


They were being bothered by flies so there was a lot of tail-swishing and ear-twitching going on.



A horse is a horse, of course, of course.


And some well-groomed horses…seen in Gilbert a few weeks ago:

  1. They are such beautiful creatures, Candace, and how fortunate you are to have them so close to you. So nicely photographed.

    Wishing you a wonderful day!


  2. A fine series on these good looking horses. I liked the general views. I also liked the closer shot with the interesting back light that gave you impressive details. Well done!


  3. I adore horses. After being a horse crazy young gal, I finally got horses and had them up until I was in my 30s. I still love them but it’s quite impractical (and expensive) 🙂


  4. I always forget that there used to be a ton of horse property in central Phoenix! I think our neighborhood used to have a lot, as we are near the Country Club and a certain part of our backyard suggests that it used to be a horse pen. These guys are handsome!
