On the way to take Barnacle on an illegal walk, we drove past something you don't see every day.

A herd of wild horses.

I have heard tale of these horses since arriving in Fort Polk, but had never seen one until today - when I saw a whole bunch. Apparently the base paid a lot of money to get these horses off post, mostly because they cause traffic accidents. However, I'm kind of glad it didn't work, because it was really cool to see them.

It's things like this that make me glad I'm such a camera nut, because I was able to capture something I probably won't get to see after I leave here - and maybe ever again. It's also nice to have a picture on my 365 that isn't of my dog or a furniture unit, to prove that I don't actually sit in my house like a hermit all day long.

Oh, also, these horses were in a field next to a two-lane highway, and further up the road - on the other side there was a flashing sign warning "CAUTION, WILD HORSES." I firmly think it should have said "HEY, WILD HORSES!! WILD HORSES!!! GO LOOK!!!!" But, maybe that's just me.


  1. I guess wild horses are better than the wild cows all over Ft Hood. They have cattle guards everywhere, it's ridiculous.

  2. Haha, Ski actually brought that up, and I said, "I prefer wild horses." hahahaha :) Though, now I've seen both wild herd animals!!! I'm awesome.
