Day 113

and this guy!

July 17th, 2010


  1. Aww…how cute. He’s coming to greet you and welcome you to his place. Different to me to see a horse just out in the open like that. Beautiful place though.

  2. Dennis in So Cal says:

    Once again Matt you are being stared at by a four legged creature.

  3. Kevin from NC says:

    A noble quadrestrian

  4. Jeff says:

    Yea looks like mother natures greeting Matt. I agree. But not so sure this was the Ped Xing we just read about.

    IS it in the open or teatherd to a string.

  5. Don in Tennessee says:

    Matt, now you have blown your secert to ALL of the women that you are a STUD!!!

    Again; great photo and yes it is strange to see a horse in the wide open plains-but that is how it is in these parts.

  6. Gigi says:

    Is that Black Beauty?

  7. Candice in Alabama says:

    That is one horse that doesn’t have to worry about going hungry – from the size of those silos!

  8. Brenda in OH says:

    I used to do that to my horses I had when I was younger! I would tether them out with a braided rope made from hay bale string and a heavy duty dog corkscrew stake. I would tie them out to eat down the tall grass where we didn’t mow that often by the side of the road. You can see the homemade rope hanging from it’s halter.

    • Thanks. I thought it was just a piece of the grass around him sticking out like that. Had no idea it would be a rope he was tied to.

    • Donna in MI says:

      Brenda in OH,
      Thanks for the information. That makes so much sense! I can see tall grasses near where the horse is tethered. As you can see, the horse is near the side of the road where it can eat the tall grasses. Thanks for your insight!

      • Jeff says:

        Thanks Brenda. What would I do without the ladys from Ohio. The real home of First Flight.

      • Donna in MI says:

        Brenda, I would like to ask you a question. I know you’re in Ohio but…….how long do you suppose they would leave that horse tethered out there? I don’t see any water buckets, or old water trough (not that there would be any water in it). But, I think that heat can get mighty hot for an animal without any shade.

    • Michael in Atlanta says:

      It looks like he’s been working hard too, with lots of tall grass left to go!

  9. Barbara Kiviat says:

    A horse! OF COURSE!

  10. Adis says:

    Beautiful shot!

    I wish to see rural America one day :)

    • Donna in MI says:

      Adis in Lithuania,
      Welcome to the website! I saw your pictures on your website. You have some wonderful pictures of Lithuania posted. I’m glad you’re able to see rural America through Matt’s eyes now, and hope someday you can see it in person! His pictures are enlightening to all of us.

      • Candice in Alabama says:

        I checked out Adis’ site – but I can’t read it. I did see this beautiful image posted:

        • Adis says:

          Dear Candice and all the others who are interested,

          If you’re keen to understand what I’m writing about (and usually it about life in Lithuania or some shots from tourist routes in Lithuanian nature), you could try to read it via with option Lithuanian > English. But sadly, it won’t be very fluent, because I’m using live speech – informal words, unusual wxpressions etc. Just for shots, you are welcome to brows via

      • Adis says:

        Thanks for a welcome :)

        And yes, Matt’s pics are great and really interesting documentary ;) Keep going’, Matt!!!

    • Marshall in RVA says:

      Wow, Matt’s gone Global.

  11. Lori in Ohio says:

    Been following Matt since Mid April when he walked past a gas station I was at. Have you seen any larger than deer wild life yet? Any wild horses?

  12. katzien in austin says:

    I love this one. The deep blue sky is awesome.

  13. MN Roxanne says:

    I love that horses are lawnmowers….. now that’s going “green”!
