When we came across some horses

We wandered around Palo Alto looking for things to photograph.

After stepping in poison ivy,
seeing a coyote,
driving the longest possible mountain road,
and still seeing not too much…

we came across some horses.

So we pulled over and chatted with the property owner,
who welcomed us to take pictures.

Too many pictures later,
we made some friendly equine acquaintances
like this gentle white giant,
who used to work in the circus (!) and is now retired.

I so wish we had some food we could have given them,
but that’s kind of a no-no
as evidenced by this fellow,
who had a muzzle on to prevent him from eating too much.

But we will be back next time
(possibly with a hidden apple or two).
