riding horses

© Horse near Langenselbold 2009 by Fritsch

I’d be riding horses if they let me / Sleep outside at night and not take fright / I would ride the range and never worry / I would disappear into the night (Sally Timms as sung by Bonnie Prince Billy)

    Könnte der Bruder von Jolly Jumper sein?
    Und die Barthaare, abgefahren. Und sie sind unter 3 Liter, weil die Pferde kommen wohl wieder zurück.
    Dann geht es mit dem Gaul zum Discounter.

    Genau, Joe, wir steigen dann vor dem Discounter vom Pferd und singen “I’m a poor lonesome cowboy, I’m a long long way from home”.

    Viele Grüße & weiterhin sichere Straßen,
    Fritsch.

    Such graceful, regal creatures. A majestic portrait.

    Such a beautiful creature. I think probably the color version wouldn’t be as striking as this b/w image. You know, this creature reminds me of galloping bass line from Muse – Knights of Cydonia, although it has nothing to do with horses in it’s lyrics. =p

    a very nice shot; very different from the norm!
