Photo Challenge: 18 Horses Celebrating Their Birthday

Let them eat cake.

Admittedly, after several years of doing photo challenges, I find myself setting similar prompts year after year: horses in snow, horses going swimming, horses and sunsets… This is perhaps the first time we’ve ever done “horse birthday celebrations,” and this genuinely warmed my cold and jaded heart. These horses are, to put it simply, loved.
