Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Patiently Waiting

This week, Amy has chosen Waiting as the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.  I know very little about horses, but one thing I’ve noticed is that they are very adept at waiting patiently.  The definition of ‘patient’ is to be able to accept or tolerate delays, problems or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious. The definition of ‘waiting’ is the action of staying where one is or delaying action until a particular time or until something else happens. Horses seem to have got this down to a fine art.  We humans could learn a thing or two from them.

  1. Lovely shots of beautiful horses! Abroad I always feel so sorry for them patiently waiting…and waiting, and waiting…and waiting. Sometimes in hot sun and no water. Your horses are all well though!

  2. Such a great idea to show how ‘waiting’ should be done! It’s good to see those beautiful horses in different places working hard for man and always noble.

  3. Yes you’re right, horses are incredibly patient creatures. My daughter has three and I’m always amazed at how they can just wait around all day. Great photos Sue
