With the advent of the camera-in-a-phone in the early 2000s, carrying two devices—one to make phone calls and one to take pictures—is a thing of the past. Now, pretty much everyone can capture those once-in-a-lifetime memories whenever they happen.
Apparently, this little girl and her family were enjoying a day together when they happened upon a team of Clydesdales in harness. Now, these majestic horses are tall by anyone’s standard, but when you’re not much taller than about 3½ feet, they must appear enormous.
Imagine looking at these horses from a little girl’s perspective. Their feet are as big around as dinner plates, and their bulk can weigh up to a ton or more. That’s a lot of horse, and probably intimidates adults, not to mention small children.
Perhaps her parents encouraged her to touch the velvety smoothness of the sensitive muzzle of the giant horse. That probably took an immense amount of courage from one so small! Still, with some reassurance from her parents, she moved closer to the magnificent animals, and turned her back on them to face her parents.
Looking at the little girl’s face, you can see that she has no idea what’s going on behind her. Can you envision the hilarity that followed when mom or dad snapped the photo and realized the splendid photobomb that happened?
It looks like the humans in this photo shoot aren’t the only ones laughing. Just take a look at the horse’s face. If that’s not the look of mirthfulness, I don’t know what is!
