Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected.



Most of us see herd dominance as a line–alpha to the “bottom.” It’s a limited one-dimensional view. When was any life ever that simple?

Too much notice is given to differences. In the barn herd, members are connected, even as individuality blossoms. Opposites attract. Temperaments change over the years. Alliances come and go. And when someone separates, the entire herd feels that loss.

You already know the next part, right?

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo- I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)


This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.

    • I was speaking of the past and future… I have a few elders here and they are holding on for now. The Grandfather Horse has a new ailment, but today was a good day.
