The 1st of August is Horses' Birthday in the Southern Hemisphere, click the link to find out why the 1st of August. In the Northern Hemisphere it is 1st January, I'm guessing for the same reason. There were big plans to celebrate this event in Chidlow 45minutes east of Perth. I was really looking forward to taking lots of horsey shots but it was not to be, beaucoup de pluie and strong winds put paid to the celebrations, paddocks flooded! Although I am five days late I still felt these magnificent creatures, whether stately Clydesdale or temporary mini unicorns below, deserved recognition..
You can bet your bottom dollar I didn't take the shots below lately. They are from February when the temps can reach 40C. Taken on the horse/dog beach close by, it must feel so wonderful to cool off like this. Happy belated birthday to horses everywhere.. I can't believe there isn't a carrot emoji :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..
