POTD: A Tale of Two Horses

A Tale of Two Horses
San Rafael Swell, Utah

The Fashion Queen was sitting on a rock facing this wall with some faded red pictographs on it when she announced she saw a horse on the wall below the pictographs. I asked where and she proceeded to describe where I should be looking to see what she was talking about. I couldn’t see it a first but finally figured out what she was talking about–or at least I thought I did. Just for fun, I took a photo of the wall to post here on the POTD. When it came time to post it I decided I should print it out and have her draw in her horse because I figured other people were no more likely than me to see what she was talking about without some help. So I printed it and she drew her horse and it turns out that I actually had no idea where she was seeing the horse. In fact it was so far off from where I thought she was telling me to look that I failed to even include the whole horse that she saw in the photo.

Here’s the photo with her small horse drawn on the center left of the image, along with what I thought she was talking about, drawn in the center of the photo. Who picked the better horse, and what this all says about a couple’s ability to communicate after 40 years of marriage–well, I’ll leave that assessment up to you.
