It's so much fun watching a horse roll around. They always look like they're totally enjoying themselves!

Carole M. said...

great series of shots; wondering do you ride your horses?

Fjällripan said...

Bautiful! When I was young-er I dreamed of a red horse like this :) Do you ride by the way? Its been a long time since I sat on a horse but I would love to do it again :)

CameraCruise said...

Beautiful photos of your horses, love them!

Giga said...

Widziałam taką sytuacje kiedyś na łące i bardzo mi się to podobało, a teraz to widzę u Ciebie. Pozdrawiam.*** I've seen this situation once in a meadow and I really enjoyed it and now I see in you. Yours.

Michaele said...

Now THAT'S the way it's done!

Clint Baker said...

We loved those!

Kathy said...

A refreshing diversion. It's been raining here for the past six hours! That means lots of new green grass for the horses.

MarmePurl said...

Hhaha. Fun Pictures to start my day. Thanks!

Michael said...

we live in the part of New Jersey (northwest corner) that is horse country, not many people knowing NJ has anything but the turnpike. The United States Olympic Equestrian team facilities are here... beautiful creatures

Oh, I love this series of pictures! (and now I'll have that song in my head all day. No problem! It's a good one!)

The horse seems to enjoy it very much!
Many greetings and have a nice weekend!
Yvonne & Raphael

Jill said...

These are wonderful! What a life. :)

Mike said...

Looks like someone's been playing paintball.

How's you pond? I see you should've gotten a few drops of water overnight?

Nancy Claeys said...

Love seeing this -- just like a little colt. :)

Catherine said...

Sometimes you just have to scratch that itch!
xo Catherine

Bruce Clark said...

Ahhh a back rub is always a good thing!

Wanda..plain~N~simple said...

I love watching horse play! :D My Mother use to always tell me that when you see horses rolling on the ground and frolicing in the pasture, it is a sign of rain. Beautiful horses, do you ride them?

Millie said...

What a great roll in the grass! Most of the time, we goats are not fond of rolling like that, but that does look quite satisfying.

Denise said...

How wonderful to see all that frolicking. Great pictures!

eileeninmd said...

Beautiful horses and a great series of photos! Happy weekend!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

;))) There now, that's all better...I could just imagine the beauty saying as the other one looked on. I love horses and I cannot wait until spring around this state~

quies said...

Great series of photos again.
The horses look like they`re happy and totally enjoying themselves.

Melodie said...

Whew! When you have an itch you just gotta get to it !

Bob Bushell said...

Horses, great.

sweetdaysundertheoaks said...

Oh Man, I can feel how good that felt to Zim! Super series of pictures of Zim livin' the good life :) What a hunka horse!

I did it :)

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

Ahhh, that feels much better!

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

And Gem didn't want to roll after that!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

My dog does this all the time, I never tried it myself, maybe I will.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Such a good roll!! LOL!

T., have you heard anything about Leontien? I have her on my mind so frequently and go check her blog... but, nothing. Breaks my heart for her. blessings ~ t.

Sheeps and Peeps Farm said...

great series... so much fun catching those moments!

Lynne said...

Great pictures . . . I guess I will try that kind of roll the next time my back itches!

Sandra said...

still laughing, laughed all the way through, the 3rd is my favorite, she looks like baby and jake, they do this in the middle of the floor when we are watching TV. but i must say it is more fun watching a horse do it. also love the two where she is getting up. ahhhhh the life of a horse on the RAR

Linda said...

After the roll, the shake, and the full-body snort, isn't there a little jumping into the air and kicking and trying to get Gem to engage in some play before returning to the regularly scheduled program? :)

Joop Zand said...

These are lovely Theresa.....nice done.

Greetings, Joop

HOOTIN ANNI said...

How fun was that? I so enjoyed these images/action shots. Wonderful. As I have to say ---horses are marvelous marvels!!

My Saturday Link: HE'S ALL KNOWING...ALL SEEING

Hope you're having a great weekend so far.

islandwonder said...

Nothing more satisfying that scratching an itch.

Deb said...

a little spring fever maybe...beautiful...

holdingmoments said...

It's great when you reach that itch! lol

Sylvia K said...

Ah, that does feel great, doesn't it? Love to watch them roll around and then get back to the serious business of eating! Enjoy your weekend -- all of you!!

Sylvia

Jan n Jer said...

LOL...bet that felt soooo good!

writing26letters said...

Loved this post. I watched the photos and see that he did make it — a full rollover. When I was a kid, the horses could or would seldom roll all the way over to their other side. This one looks like he or she did it several times. Nice shots.

I was recently hacked while on Blogger and ended up having to lose everything. So I went to WordPress and am trying to get back up and running again.

I was never able to retrieve my other blogs from Blogger and eventually had to quit Blogger and Google altogether. I am trying to start up a couple of blogs with Blogger but it has been a struggle.

Anyway...

iamabrahamlincoln.wordpress.com

Are the two blogs where I am now.

Ellie said...

I hope he (she) managed to reach the itch!!!

Sandy said...

Great shots ! Beautiful horses. (o:

bj said...

These photos are great...now, have your hubs take some of YOU riding your pretty horses. :))

Elizabeth Grimes said...

That looks like fun! :)

Eva Ason said...

Beautiful horses, they look very relaxed ^_^
Have a lovely Saturday!

Eva

bailey-road.com said...

Well, that must have been satisfying. I love the way the other horse just goes on grazing peacefully. Great series - always love your animals!

Liz said...

Wonderful images! Well captured

parker said...

Spring is just around the corner and feeling horsey today! Getting an early start on getting rid of the winter coat. Good catch!

Charade said...

This post makes me hopeful that spring is near. And it reminds me of a friend who had an unwelcome house guest who kept scratching his back on the door frame just like a pig would. When she complained to me about his habit, I told her to "be happy he's not acting like a horse with an itchy back." ;-)

rkbsnana said...

Hey girl! I didn't put word verification on my blog. Didn't know it was there. Thanks for telling me.
I'll try to remove because I dislike messing with it too. Thanks again.

Sarah said...

Great sequence of pictures!

ladyfi said...

LOL - such amazing and gorgeous shots!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Just like a dog. signed Sinbad >^..^<

Montanagirl said...

Still love horses. Nice shots!

rkbsnana said...

Thanks again...I'd been trying to figure out how that happened and how to fix. It's kinda' like facebook, they keep changing without asking our opinion.

quies said...

I have now removed word verification in my blog. I am glad you commented it. I totally agree that it takes too much time.
I have difficulties reading it, even with glasses. :) It`s really annoying.

Żaneta said...

Piękne foto i ujęcia! Pozdrawiam - Żaneta

Ron said...

Thank you for note about the word verification. I thought it was just me having a hard time seeing it. LOL

I will get on our blog today and see if I can't take it off of there.

Donna said...

They are so funny when they roll over and have to scratch those itches!

Pricilla said...

It's not nearly as graceful when done by a goat

Life Ramblings said...

these are beautiful horses. great series of photos.

Becca said...

Ha Ha! It was like I was right there watching her/him! Fun, thanks!

Paula said...

Awww got that job done. Those itches can drive you crazy.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

PS...I just had to come back and read your word verification post below a couple days ago.

All I can say is "Here Here" and High five!!! Well said...point taken. I just read a comment left in my comments that she lost her blog posts because of deleting spam?!!! Ummmmm, that seems quite wrong, I've deleted a few posts and it didn't delete my whole blog...wondering. OH well...she won't get me to visit until Blogger changes their verification to a 'check' box or something.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

heheheee =)

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I'll bet that felt good:@)

laurak@forestwalkart said...

HA! great roller shots!

(i think maybe i'll try that next time i have that unreachable itch...but indoors...)

Country Mouse Studio said...

and why do they always wait until they're clean and groomed to do it?

Angela said...

It's always funny to watch a horse roll around like that! I haven't seen it in a long time though. You just wouldn't think they could move around like that where they are so big!

Andrew said...

Wonderful to see...

Filip Demuinck said...

Very good photos. I always wondered, is it because they are happy or have an itch.

Greetings,
Filip

Farm Girl said...

I always liked watching it this time of year and then walking to the place they had just rolled and seeing all of the winter hair on the ground. Then I knew spring was really here. Nice shots.

Felicity said...

Classic!
You've given me my first giggle of the day with the last photo + comment.

Happy day Lovely.

joo said...

Kerri said...

Wonderful series!
Looks like FUN!

Kerry said...

Mama Zen said...

I wish that I could do that!

Linda said...

Well that looks like it felt soooo goood!

Susan said...

That's how I felt in bed this morning! Although I missed out on the full body snort! I love your horses!

Raindrops and Daisies said...

Greetings from Hilda

Dianne said...

this is so much fun to scroll through, I did it twice

your captions are great
beautiful horses

and Amen to No Word Verify
I suppost that 100%
it's getting ridiculous
I took the button, if that's not cool just tell me

wayside wanderer said...

There is just something wonderful about watching creatures roll around on the ground like that...cat, dog, horse or the little girl of friend mimicking the cat. It must be pure pleasure.

Annie @ButteryBooks said...

Such a wonderful series of gorgeous horses! Ahhh, red horse seems to not have a worry in the world!

It's me said...

Great !!!...owwwww so sweet....xxx..

Genie said...

I think I would like to be one of your horses right now. Last week was the worst ever. I have between 6 and 8 students daily in in-school suspension. I am behind in my commenting and my class with Kim Klassen because I have been so tired each day. Maybe it is getting to be the time to live with less, travel less, and become a REAL retired teacher. I thought about using the picture for the shadows, but the one I used is so special. While I am here on the computer Buddy is out on a mountain. He is now talking about doing Mt. Hood this summer...I am NOT in favor of that one. He is a hiker and not a mountain climber. Thanks for your continued support. My only 2 cousins line in Texas. Maybe one day I will get out there. Hugs....genie

Breathtaking said...

Horses being horses,just
wonderful to watch.My dog does
exactly the same thing,and actually looks like shes smiling
whilst she rubs that itch!!

Ashley Ashbee said...

It amuses me that the white horse was so uninterested in the red horse's itchiness. Surely one horse can scratch another!

Margie said...

Looks like me when I have an itch in that spot on my back I can't reach!

DeanO said...

I watch my cats and dogs do the roll all the time. The dogs in the dirt and the cats on their spiced up cardboard scratching devices!

Robin said...

T, nothing like agood roll in the grass!

barbara l. hale said...

LOL! I love it!

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Wonderful series of photos... the word "exuberance" comes to mind for me!

Cat said...

What captures! So cool to watch unobserved. You never know what you'll catch!

Ms. ~K said...

Oh that was fun, let's do it again!

Nancy said...

The grey one looks like he's watching out while his buddy takes a roll and they are back together eating and all is fine....

Love these shots

Southwest Arkie said...

I love to watch our horses roll around. They really seem to enjoy getting a good scratch all over. They are covered with mud right now after all this rain.

Brita said...

The horses seem to live a wonderful life / Brita

Barb said...

Hope the itch got scratched!

BlueShell said...

They are adorable, aren't they?
I love horses...but I have none...
Hugs

Fireblossom said...

Where is a nice scratchy shrub when you need one, that's what I would like to know! :-)

orchid said...

Oh, you are a wonderfu, talented photographer!!!
Really beautiful scene of horses♡♡♡
Love from east, xoxo Orchid*

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Nothing like a good scratch or two to set things right...

Annette said...

You caught the essence of a good roll!

Rohrerbot said...

I have a little scratcher I use. And when my cats need an itch, they just move to me and use me to scratch their chin:) Hope you are having a fun Saturday. Lots of gardening to do this week. I could use a couple of those horses...or maybe goats to eat some of the weeds around here:)

SouthCoast Guy said...

lol...reminds me of happy dogs rolling around on the grass!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

My back itches now! Love the series

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, Wonderful horse photographs. Yes, the horses do like a good roll on occasion. Have a very nice Sunday tomorrow!

Tammy said...

Pure joy :)

And the other horse seems completely oblivious.

Candy C. said...

Have you even been sitting on a horse when they decide to shake? The first time one did that with me it felt really weird but kind of cool at that same time! :)
Great photos of the horses!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Too funny!!!! It was such a nice day here today, and I felt like doing that myself! :-)

Tracey from ⓽ said...

Ha, ha! I have a Clydesdale and I swear the earth shakes when he does that!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Great sequence of shot! Hope your having a lovely weekend.

Gillian Olson said...

Great post. When you have an itch, you just gotta scratch.

georgettesullins said...

Scritch that spot!

Chatty Crone said...

I wouldn't mind having a day like that...sandie

Texan said...

Whew finally got it! LOL

Charlotte said...

I could almost feel that. Great.

Kay L. Davies said...

Fabulous series of photos, and I don't think I've ever seen so many comments on a blog. These pictures sure deserve the response they got.

Very nice sequence.

Roan said...

That was fun! Looks like Willie right after his bath, only he looks for a bare spot in the yard so he can get a little mud worked in with a good roll.

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

i wish i could own a horse!

lovely series of photos.

Linda said...

Looks like reckless abandon to me! What fun it must have been ot stand and shoot these photos! Great job and an enjoyable visual journey for me!

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Beautiful!

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

somebody got an itch they can't scratch

Michelle Renee said...

Love seeing your horses...such a tough life they have spending all day outdoors, rolling in the grass, and having servants come feed them. ;)

Saun said...

One word AWESOME! I guess that's more than one word :)

Chip "Rocket Man" Allen said...

Beautiful series and I love the title....my favorite Steve Winwood track.

LOVE to watch a good roll..thanks for sharing this :)

Costin Comba said...

After a short play, they have to eat some sweet gras. Have a nice week. Greetings from Romania.

Furry Bottoms said...

Oh I love that series so much!!

Sandy said...

An old cowboy saying is that every time a horse rolls all the way over he is worth $100 more...

Marie said...

Wow! I loved seeing this horse enjoying himself/herself so much! Great series of pictures!

Pat Tillett said...

I so much wish I could do that!
Horses clearly love to do it. They are so full of personality...

pattisjarrett said...

This is funny! Don't think I've ever seen that. It's tough not having fingers.

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Haha, very funny!
