Years ago, one of my barn friends paid an animal communicator to talk to her horse. He was very chatty, and among other things, he said that he really liked having his picture taken. He liked it so much, in fact, he expressed sadness about camera holding humans who walked past him without taking his photo.
For the record, I don't believe in this. Not even a little bit. I mean come on...
And yet, from that point on, I couldn't not take his picture. Just in case.
I really don't believe horses understand the relationship between cameras and photos, but there are definitely some horses who seem to enjoy posing for pictures. Lucy was one of them. I have hundreds of pictures of her and with her. Here are a few (ha!) of my favorites.
