Horses Catch This City Girl’s Eye

We recently moved from one part of Texas to another.  There’s only about 6 hours in distance form one area to the other; but there’s a world of differences.

Cow Country

We lived in the flat plains of the Panhandle before.  You could literally see for miles and miles.  It wasn’t unusual to see herds of cattle and even feed lots if you drove outside of the city limits.  There were a few horses in some pastures; but it was mostly cow country.

Horse Country

Our new area is the exact opposite.  There are rolling hills and trees everywhere.  Sometimes you can’t see beyond the road you’re traveling. Our community is out in the country and we are surrounded by horse ranches.  It’s not unusual to pass horses in almost every field on the roads we drive to get to our house.  Some of the horse ranches have herds of 30 or more while others have just a few horses running around. There are a few cows; but this is definitely horse country.

Beyond the Fence

As a city girl, I’ve not been around horses very much; so I’m fascinated by these beautiful creatures.  I wanted to share a few photos I took when we were out for a drive yesterday.  I hope you can look past the fences to see these gorgeous animals.InTheField_www.rainydayreflections.comWatching_www.rainydayreflectionscomDinnerTime_www.rainydayreflections.comJustWhatDoYouWant_www.rainydayreflections.comOverHere_www.rainydayreflections.comWhoAreYou_www.rainydayreflections.com

Do you have experience with horses?  What animal is your area most recognized for raising?

  1. I drive by horses every day – but do not have much experience – and your photos are lovely – and also – I can see how six hours is a world of difference e- 3 hours can be too – 🙂
