  1. Whoa Nelly for sure on number one, and the horse is doing that all on their own in number five! I’d have to say #7 is my favorite from this week’s cartoon ranch. Definitely in keeping with the Post’s horse theme for May/June. My own interactions are with tame horses going on little trail rides in the cool weather (when I can) and getting the magical human/equine bond that’s equally beneficial to both. A bag of carrots is always appreciated, naturally.
