Who likes horses?

Industry Observer

 I captured some wonderful pics of some horses on my way to Rachel Nevada, these horses were around the Alamo area. Alamo is a little over one hour north of Las Vegas.

 These three horses asked me "Vegas Bob, what brings you up to our neck of the woods"?

 This beauty was posing for Vegas Bob!

 These two photos above look like the same horses as the pic of the three together at the top page, but if you look real close they aren't. If fact these two above that were posing for Vegas Bob were about 20 miles north of the other ones.

Hellloooo Mr. Las Vegas, a city we love!  Fantastic pictures of horses! They are one beautiful animal.  We just discussed "riding", this afternoon.  Can't decide if we like the black one or the palomino the best.

Al and Peggy - I would have to say by looking at them that the black horses would be the best ride!

Teresa - They do look well kept!

Kathy - A new baby horse, that's exciting lucky you!

Bob, They appeared to be posing for you!  Our daughter use to have a horse named Blaze that looked much like the third picture.  We sold her when our daughter went away to college.  It was a hard decision but it is very expensive to have a horse.

Vegas Bob,

    You certainly have a knack for getting great shots.  These horses are gorgeous. They look like they are posing for you.

I like horses, but everytime I look at them I can't help myself but picture poor horses at the track. At least these horses are free- they are, right? As long as they are not used for monetary gain- I'm okay with that. Sorry I'm a little sensitive when it comes to animals. Nice pics though. Thanks for sharing

Nice pictures!  How did you get them to pose for you?  Their pastures look very lush which is kind of surprising for NV isn't it?
