Signs for HORSE
Meaning: A large hoofed mammal having a short coat, a long mane, and a long tail, domesticated since ancient times and used for riding and for drawing or carrying loads.
Using either one or two hands is acceptable. Both hands are used in the context of formal register (e.g. teaching ASL in class or storytelling for children). Use one hand in casual register.

Uses of visual vernacular and cinematic devices. This video makes me laugh. Great job.
Doodle to Brighten Your Day
This doodle art depicts a written ASL word with an image of the horse above the written ASL and a fingerspelled English word below the ASL written word. In case, you're wondering what the heck is a hatched blob in front of the horse. It's hay!
Trivial tidbit: Did you know that... a horse can look forward with one eye and, at the same time, look back with the other eye.
