Behind the Fence

Francie, with her oddly twisted ears.
 
I've asked around, but I never did manage to find someone who had an idea of why her ears are tilted backwards on the tips.

Linked with RunARound Ranch's Good Fences link up. 
 
A happy 8th birthday today to Pierce!

I'll ask Elizabeth. She spends so much time at the stable with Seamus that maybe she has picked up something about that.

Seamus has a girlfriend now. A mare that is in the same paddock during the day as he is. She groomed him and pulled out his mane! I guess she wanted a new look for him.

Happy Birthday Pierce!

Her ears are unique, but she's still beautiful!

Annette said...

Perhaps she is just a very special girl with very special ears, such a sweet sweet photo of her.

Happy Birthday to Piece! I hope he has a wonderful time today.

Francie is a very particular horse; why should she not have particular ears? She's looking reasonably good from that picture, so that is great news in itself.

Blessings and Bear hugs.

P.S.: I always thought a fence was what you took when people insulted you. Perhaps my grasp of Human language is not as good as I think.

Awwww - sweet boy, 8 years old! Happy Birthday, Pierce!

Regardless to her ears (since I have no clue) Francie is a beautiful horse and wonderful thanks to all of your hard work, Lisa.

Maybe it is just part of how we are all different. But it is so cute! Hey, I got your package yesterday. Thank you so much, it all shipped in perfect shape!! And the best part, there is a cookbook so I can make things with it!

Gail Dixon said...

Hmmm...there must be a good reason. In any case, they're pretty ears and I would have never noticed how they're tilted back.

Happy birthday to sweet Pierce!

I haven't been around a lot of horses, but that is strange that the ears tilt back.

Have a nice and successful weekend

Montanagirl said...

It certainly sets her apart from all the others!

Willow said...

She sure is cute ~ I have to say I have never ever seen a horse with ears like that and I've seen a lot of horses !

Willow said...

The Kathiawari breed has odd ears I wonder if she has a distant ancestor in there somewhere??

Terri said...

I was thinking maybe a birth defect, or something happened to them when she was young. It certainly makes her unique! She is a lucky horse to have you as a guardian.

Michaele said...

The better to hear you with my dear.

Linda said...

She just wants to be different.

Hope Pierce had a special fun day!

alissa apel said...

She was probably born with ears like that. Just the way she is. I googled the ear thing. One blog post towards the very end: http://pawsthink.wordpress.com/2011/06/03/indian-head-bobble/

says, "Some Indian breeds of horses have ears that tilt in odd directions, and make them look quite distinguished." Maybe she's part of an Indian breed.

Happy Belated Birthday to Pierce!

carolann said...
