Pictures of my horse lying down

There is something about seeing a 1,000 pound animal lying down with his legs tucked up under him that is just SO cute.

Actually, with my horse it's more like 750 pounds (he's small, only 14 hands). But still, you get the point.

I visited today during the evening, when the horses like to bask in the last remaining sun for the day. When I arrived, Panama was lying in his run, soaking up the rays:

Isn't he adorable?

This is the horses' lazy time — and when a 1,000- (or 750-) pound animal is determined not to get up or move, there's not all that much you can do about it. So Panama didn't get up for several minutes after I arrived. I squatted next to him and "snuggled" him, pet his neck and belly, checked out the wounds on his legs, etc., and he just stayed right there.

Of course, I had to take a bunch of pictures since I hadn't been able to take any the other time he did this:

I am so in love with my horse!

He is SO cute! And he even has a little beard. LOL

The longer hair underneath his jaw is the remnants of his winter coat, and should be gone before too much longer. The whiskers on his nose and chin need to be trimmed, as my trainer keeps telling me -- unfortunately, he doesn't go for clippers, so I've got to find a better way to do it than cutting each one individually with scissors! LOL
