#WRITEPHOTO – Feather Cloud by A Unique Title For Me

How much do you know about a horses’ tail? Not as much as Jim I’d guess.

Thank you so much for taking part in #Writephoto – Feather Cloud prompt.

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a beautiful feathered cloud in the colours of a rainbow.

That is not a feather cloud, it’s a mare’s tail and I ought to know as I carefully lifted many horses’ tails and I wondered what purpose they served.  I noticed that when it was swung around, it would deter flies from biting its ass and this was their defense in their war against insects.  This is a part of the horse that must be respected, as a tail can be used like a whip and it is a formidable weapon, especially when it is frantically swished and swayed around.  Animals’ butts may seem mundane to most people, but only creatures with an anus are able to physically segregate the acts of eating and defecating, so they don’t have to finish processing one meal before ingesting another, allowing their bodies to harvest more energy, so they can grow bigger.
