A horse is a horse of course, of course...unless it's a zebra.


A blonde bought two horses, and could never remember which horse was which. 

A neighbor suggested that she cut the tail of one horse and that worked great until the other horse got his tail caught in a bush. It tore just right and looked exactly like the other horse's tail and our friend was stuck again. 

The neighbor suggested she notch the ear 
off one horse. That worked fine until the other horse caught his ear on a barbed wire fence. Once again our friend couldn't tell them apart. 

The neighbor suggested she measure the horses for height. When she did, she was very pleased to find that the white horse was 2 inches taller than the black horse.



This Zebra-Horse lives at Haycock Stables in Perkasie. 
We love visiting it whenever we go riding. 
Joanne and Abe are 2 of the greatest people around.

I got nominated for something:
I'm going to tell you the truth-
those bloggers that are always like
'Vote for me, vote for me, vote for me,'
well, they give me a headache.
I don't always want to vote.
So, honestly, if these things annoy you,
PLEASE do not even think twice about it.
If you don't mind voting though,
I will just post about it this one time.
It isn't one of those things where you have to put in your name and email and sign up.
All you have to do is click VOTE.
I won't be putting it on facebook 
and begging left and right,
this is it.
You only have to hear it once : )
I appreciate you visiting.
So much.
Thank you.

So I shouldn't vote for you?

Just kidding...of COURSE I'd vote for you, unless I were running against you, then I'd have to vote for myself but as I don't live in Philly, I'm going to let you take the glory on this one.

Jazmyn Alexandria said...

I voted but to be honest I didn't quite get the horse part haha.

Buckeroomama said...

Maybe it might not even be a zebra-horse.... maybe it's a TIGER-horse! Regardless, that's one cool-looking horse. (Voted, of course!)

My Photographic Eye by Irela said...

How very interesting!! Love it.

That is definitely a cool horse! I voted for you; you so deserve it! And I still don't get the joke...I am a natural blonde. :)

Simple Girl said...

I don't think this Zebra-Horse can decide if it wants to be a blonde or brunette! So many choices! :-)

I love this shot! (But who am I kidding, I always love your shots. If I'm ever in Philly, I might just find you and jump in front of your camera, because you make everyone look so good!)

And I'm about to go vote for you. Because I want to, not because you're telling me to. And if it's something where I can vote early and often, I'll vote again.

Maggie May said...

How funny!
Loved the photo.

Nuts in May

Team Lando said...

PS. Reason I like you: Ellie got up at like 4:32 or something insane, so I've been holding a fussy baby and commenting on IHF pics all morning. And every photo I see has a kind word from you! Every. Single. One.

ukreal1 said...

I don't get the joke either (a natural mousy brown, blonde til I was 5 yrs old and now blonde out of a $5 packet) but I love the shot and the glistening whiskers x

Julie Rivera Photography said...

Who knew you could bridle a zebra?! I thought they were unrideable...maybe you can lead them around? (Obviously I know next to nothing about large animals...) Lovely choice, Becky! And congrats on your nomination. Philly ain't no po-dunk town! :)

Adrienne in Ohio said...

I didn't even know there WAS such a thing as a zebra-horse! When I first saw the photo, I thought he was wrinkly! :)

And you know i voted! How could I not? ♥

Piper said...

LOL - Great picture and funny too!

Christina said...

Becky,
Something is seriously wrong with me. I read that and I didn't laugh. I scrolled down past the zebra picture and I thought,"Where is the rest of it?" I scrolled down to the comments and someone had choked on something because it was so funny. I knew I had missed something so I went back up. I reread the end. I reread the beginning. I was like,"Was it a zebra? Was there a mirror?"
Seriously. What is wrong with me. THEY WERE DIFFERENT COLORED HORSES! Clearly, I am a double secret blonde. :P
