Poor Horse!

Posted in: Cuenca Ecuador, Traveling Kids

This is a common sight out in the Ecuador countryside: a poor little horse, loaded down with sugar cane.


Poor horse!

The sugar cane is not dry, like we originally thought, it is actually the fresh-cut sugar cane. So that would be like you carrying a backpack as long as you, filled with full water jugs; and scratching at your legs and face the whole time!!!!!!

FYI: This is not a candid opinion. All of my local friends that I have asked have said the same thing.

Here’s a tip!

When shooting animals, try not to use the flash. It should only be used if it is absolutely necessary because it can spook the animals. And remember: you can always brighten the image in Photoshop.

Catch ya later shutterbug 😉 !

    It does look like a very heavy load, you can’t even see very much of the horse. 🙁 Does the horse have to go very far with a load like this?
