Reader Photo Challenge: Caught in the Act

Whether trying to get treats, pawing the fence, making a mess or just being where we all know they don’t need to be.

This week we wanted to see your angelic troublemaking horses caught in the act, red-handed (or, red-hooved, I suppose) with one hand (hoof) in the cookie (treat) jar. Here’s what you, dear readers, gave us!
