Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second

For this week’s challenge, we want you to become a documentary photographer and attempt to capture a candid moment of a person, place, or thing. 

On our daily walk around the field adjoining our neighbor’s barn, Max and Berkley suddenly erupted into hysterical barking when faced with this sartorial outrage. I mean, please, my boys are just exhibiting their inherent good taste, and Prada, the mule, really needs a little guidance.



About Silver in the Barn

Life in a 1915 farmhouse in Central Virginia. And the odd thought or two.

    LOL – who in heaven’s name made that poor mule wear the coal?!?!??! Wonderful story!


  2. Sue Mayo says:

    Prada needs a new stylist. That wrap would make me bark too.

    Wonderful capture Barbara, I just adore those Westies. Thank you.


  4. Leya says:

    Oh, they want one of those too…don’t they? Happy story!

    It seems to me that someone was inspired by Dolly Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors”. Prada is totally in her own world and is probably thinking these two are in a jealous rage. We should all be so detached, right? Good photo Mz Barb.

    Reminds me of a pinata!


  7. I’m with the dogs on this one, too…

    LOL! Those pups know when there are aliens in their midst! 🙂

    Prada..Mule has a great sense of fashion! Lovely photo and nicely captured. Thanks for sharing. Do visit my blog page as well.


  10. Perhaps, their barking has more to do with the Coat of Many Colors. (I see another commenter has already mentioned this. It is the first thing I thought of.) It didn’t work well for Joseph in the Old Testament. Maybe, in time, Max and Berkley will warm to Prada’s glorious multi-colored coat. 😉

    LMAO! Prada the mule! I’m glad I stopped by.


  12. Love the storyline, the Westies may not appreciate the fashionable Prada, but that sure is a statement coat!


  13. Sheryl says:

    What a hilarious sight! This fun post is a day brightener.


  14. Diane Ahlberg says:

    Max and Berkley are critiquing the mule”s attire- not sure if they approve but they certainly are giving their opinion – too fun!

    Your dogs are just too cute. This is so funny 🙂

    I think Prada is a fashion guru – big circles and bold colours are this seasons colours. So fashionable! 😀


  17. themofman says:

    Prada does look saddened with his head down like that.


  18. Mabel Kwong says:

    This is hilarious. As Diana said, the horse looks like a pinata! 😀 I wonder if the horse felt magnificent, silly or high class wearing that fashionable piece of clothing. I think it suits the horse!
