    I think I need to find someone to photoshop a horn onto his forehead in the first picture...

    Oh, that's lovely! And yes, a unicorn would make a lovely accompaniment, although your horse does a fine job, horn or no!

    Beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing.

    Me, I like riding in the rain. One has the outdoors pretty much to oneself. It's a lovely feeling.

    lovely photo.
    I sometimes think that I have a (hornless) unicorn too, but a bay one.

    Yes, rain can be exhilarating sometimes. Once was caught in a sudden downpour, raining so hard that the raindrops were bouncing back up from the ground, and instantly- created streams were flowing over my horse's hooves.
    It was an amazing experience. Both my mare and I were soaked (luckily, a warm rain) and wide-eyed, experiencing this intense phenomenon together. Mother Nature does what she does.

    My mare grunts like a pig and throws a hissy fit if I DARE to ride her in the rain. The RAINDROPS TOUCH HER FACE, that is NOT allowed!
    Tell a Gelding. Ask a Stallion. Discuss it with a Mare... Pray if it's a Pony!

    I've ridden in plenty of rain. Sometimes you just have to be out in it.
    I make my daughters pack a slicker on any rides into the mountains during the summer. Because thundershowers just show up and when you are 10 miles back into the widerness, You've got no choice but to continue on.

    I just don't like the storms that have lots of lighting and thunder.

    Beautiful pictures but I reeeallly hate getting my saddle wet. I've been caught in rain storms before (hard to avoid in the South) but my horses hates going in the rain too. Not much fun for either one of us.

    you look vaguely familiar.
