…Or, if you’re so inclined, “Horsies:”

Or if you’re not so inclined, Horses at the Equine Wellness Expo at Umass/Amherst two weekends ago:

Bo Derek made a cameo:

Kudos to her hair stylist and posture coach; she did everything except run in slow motion.

The Expo was about Equine Wellness, as you might have guessed from its name, and featured demonstrations such as this Reiki practitioner working on a rescue horse, and to good effect:

Yawning, chewing and tongue-hanging are all signs of “release” in horses, and manifest when pain is addressed or problems are resolved.  I was impressed with the range of skills demonstrated, mostly on a group of horses from a rescue sanctuary in Central Massachusetts.

Plus, I had fun trying to capture the day in photographs.  Horses are, um, not  landscapes, and don’t just wait around while a photographer figures out what they want to do!

Which one? Those are four horses and a special little buddy. But really, they’re all beautiful, aren’t they?

I’d meant Bo Derek simply because all of her is represented. The other geegees 🙂 are beautiful too
