Animal Magnetism

Today is Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. Today's theme is Animals.

Meet Otto, one of South Pasadena's more regal residents. Otto has an impressive show horse background, but he was kind enough to gently, patiently give rides to a passel of excited 6 and 7 year olds at a recent birthday party.

Otto is just one of many horses occupying the two stables in South Pasadena. You'll see his pals meandering along the trails of the lower Arroyo, reminding us that there is still a little Wild West left in the big city.

The opposing blue/brown theme is spectacular, not to mention that gem of a horse. I could hug his neck right now!

Thanks for linking to all of the other blogs. You know how much I adore shots of animals. I encourage all of you to do the same. There were lots of smiles brought to my face this morning looking at the various animals throughout the world.

Regal is a good word for Otto.

What a beauty and with such a gentle eye. Love the word 'passel' - not heard that before. I've added it to my vocabulary!
