January 31, 2014 begins celebrations of the Chinese New Year, and this year happens to be the
Year of the Horse
In honor of the occasion, I decided to dig into the archives and post a few images of the
beautiful horses I've gotten to photograph
According to the Chinese traditions, people born in the year of the horse are said to be a bit like horses: animated, active and energetic – they love being in a crowd. They are quick to learn independence – foals can walk minutes after birth – and they have a straightforward and positive attitude towards life. They are known for their communication skills and are exceedingly witty.
Horses are Gorgeous and Great Athletes! And Companions. And Co-workers.
They have captured our imagination for years and years. Click the Huffington Post link below to see a list of their 14 Favorite Fictional Horses, complete with video footage of each!!
It is very entertaining!!
If you were born in the year of the horse, you're in good company. Fellow members of the horse club include Genghis Khan, Franklin D Roosevelt, Louis Pasteur, a 19th-century scientist; Neil Armstrong, the American singer Aretha Franklin; and the model Cindy Crawford.
