Horse's Ass

I’ve been saving this picture a while trying to work it in a blog entry.

One day Sassy, our black Pasafino, was having problems with her back side. Gigi ever fearless around horses goes in to investigate. That is worming paste in her right pocket so she can attach the sweet end of 40 feet of horse gut.

I had already had a few libations when Gigi asked me if I would hold Sassy’s front end while she worked on the back end. I thought it would be neat to capture the moment in a picture.

What I didn’t think about was the flash.

A nanosecond after this picture was taken the horse jumped nearly out of her skin and I got a good lecture from Gigi.
