You know how when you see sculptures of horses they tend to be in very majestic poses--running, leaping, rearing, or standing alertly? Well, that's all fine and good, and I like those poses too, but I've had a horse (well, three different ones) in my life for many years now, and I know that horses can be the most ridiculously dorky creatures to grace the face of this earth, and they do lots of things that make me laugh.

That's what this series is--a not-necessarily-anatomically-correct (a.ka. goofy) look at horses doing the silly things that horses do...the unmajestic aspect of the equine.

I don't know yet how many will be in this series....or for that matter if it will even continue. But it's a start, and you just might see this little buckskin guy again. :-)
