  17. First time comment from long-time lurker.
    LOVE the pic, but I”m afraid of horses. My 18 year old kitty had to be put to sleep yesterday. Saddest. Thing. Ever. He was amazing.

  18. MoonCatty says:

    Horsies have velvet snozzles… so so soft…

    And if they have long whiskers, they tickle! So wunnerful to nuzzle a horsey snozzle!

  19. Love the velvet schnoz and they warm hay breath. Love horses . . .
    (pat pat pat)

  20. But it says NOTHING about looking up its nose. :mrgreen:

  21. Looks like that schnoz could produce the mother of all nose goblins!

  22. BatBlaster says:

    Good point. I wonder how he thinks the camera smells.

  23. FancyNancy says:

    Oh velvety, squishy muzzle pouch…. le sigh…

  24. Funny!!! =)

  25. Love the angle on this pic! Horsey noses are indeed wonderful things, as many others before me have stated.

    I used to take care of a very sweet (retired) horse with epilepsy. Sometimes just before Tony had a seizure his lips would start flapping like crazy from his head movements; that was one of his warning signs. Given that Tony had a particularly large set of lips, this could be quite a dramatic sight. Whenever I think of horse lips, I think of Tony.

    And just so y’all don’t worry–Tony was euthanized when the seizures became frequent enough to make his life uncomfortable. When I knew him, he only had a few seizures per year, and the rest of the time he was a relaxed and happy boy. He lived into his late twenties, which is not bad for any horse, but especially for one with epilepsy.

    eeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwww! :mrgreen:

  27. *sniff* I guess they don’t make anti seizure meds for horses? Poor Tony.

  28. Fluffybutt says:

  33. Ali-baba says:

    KT, I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s never easy to let our fur babies go. I’m sending you hugs and warm thoughts, & please know your sweet fella is waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge

  34. HAW!
    As the elephant said to the naked man, “How do you breathe through that tiny thing?”

  35. I’m so sorry about your kitty.

    Horses are big but they’re not out to hurt you. They respond very well to bribery. :mrgreen:

  36. Poor Tony 😦 sniff

    I once knew a horse who was 30 years old and blind. The thing is, I had no idea of his condition until two weeks after meeting him. He was wonderful and so happy with life. I miss him.

  37. HAR!

  38. mplsredd says:

    reminds me that i am not around horses enough!!!
    what a doll, i bet his whiskers are sensitive.

  39. earlybird1 says:

    Agreed. There’s something pleasantly grandpa-ish about them. *contented sigh*

  40. kibblenibble says:

    kissykissykissy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. WendyPinNJ says:

  44. judith simons says:


  45. next pic should be a burro in a sombrero. or, same horse, zorro hat and mask, with a guitar.

  46. I want to smooch him right on the lips. Weird?

  47. El Kabong!

  48. Mary (the first) says:

    No, I had the exact same thought! (And concern for my weirdness.. :D)

  49. TrixandSam says:

    Oooooo, cute overload warning!

  50. I’m so sorry about your loss. The love you shared will remain in your heart forever. And Ali-baba is right… he is waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge.

  51. This was about 20 years ago, and at that time there was no horsey epilepsy medication. Things may have changed by now…

  52. Yes they feel like those soft marshmallows that have been rolled in powdered sugar – firm on the outside but meltingly soft underneath – kinda bouncy – oh I miss snorgling horseys!

  53. No not weird! At least, if three people all want to do it it can’t be THAT weird cannit?? I love snorgling horseys….*slopes off to paddock with shifty eyes*

  54. Condolences on the loss of your kitty. That cat had some good genes and some great care by his human to make it to eighteen.

  55. Love, love, love the speckledy nose.

  56. sunnylessmum says:

    I am so, so sorry for the loss of your kitty. After 18 years you must have had an incredible bond. I lost my beautiful kitty on Feb. 6 due to cancer. The grief is so deep. Please know how many people on this site care and are sending loving thoughts your way. Take good care.

  57. Horse snorkling incoming…prepared to be smooched….carrots at the ready.

    Yes, horse leeps are wonderful.

  58. baileysgrandmom says:

    Why the long face, horsie-poo?

  59. He has a cowlick on his horse nose.
