Photo Challenge: 8 Great Big Yawns

Warning: this post may make you very sleepy.

At least in our particular corner of Horse Nation this week, it’s been a gray, rainy, sleepy sort of week — so we decided we wanted to see your horses caught mid-yawn for our weekly photo challenge. Fortunately for us, yawning horses also look like laughing horses, so you can decide for yourself just how to caption these photos!

Laura Littrell: I took this picture of my pal Duke (and his buddy Cloudbank), just hanging over the pasture gate on a lazy afternoon!

I was attempting to get a photo of Shirley modeling her custom fly bonnet. This was her opinion. Photo by Emily Bernstein.
