August 18


I took my walk early this morning to avoid the heat and humidity we've been having. The horses on the farm down the road had just been let out, and I noticed these two standing together, just nuzzling each other. They did this for about 5 minutes, seemingly oblivious to the woman who was trying to take their picture! After I took this shot, they ran off and began grazing.

This lovely shot reminds me of the Country and Western song by Waylon Jennings and his wife, Jessi Colter:
I lifted the lyrics from:

The Union Mare & The Confederate Grey
(Paul Kennerley)
Album: White Mansions, 1978
Lyrics sung by The Drifter (Waylon Jennings) & Polly (Jessi Colter)
(INTRO)
two horses were trotting, they pranced and they ran
each one was commanded by a cavalry man
two horses stood grazing where their dead riders lay
a Union mare and a Confederate grey
they nuzzled each other as they teased and had fun
they bathed in the warm rays of the old Southern sun
no more senseless orders for them to obey
so they acted like lovers, this mare and this grey
(INSTRUMENTAL)
now these are such sad times that we're all living in
for killing you brother is the mightiest sin
how happy we'd be if we acted the way
of the Union mare and the Confederate grey
(INSTRUMENTAL)
two horses were trotting, they pranced and they ran
each one was commanded by a cavalry man
two horses stood grazing where their dead riders lay
a Union mare and a Confederate grey
