So this one is a little late. Should have been up last night. I was up for a long time finishing more horse hair commissions. I think I might go blind after doing so many button and ring knots.
Some of these are archives. The ones of my hands are not.
Hands are a wonderful thing! What on earth would we do without them?
Hands can also tell you a lot about a person. How hard they work from the callouses, how high maintenance they are from how nice their nails look. If they like to stay clean in an office or get good ol down and dirty.
I prefer callousy hands to soft ones, a little dirt under the nails. It tells me a persons got a healthy work ethic and knows how to do some hard work. It's like a wooden board on a really old barn, it may be weathered but you know it held up for a long time to keep that structure sound.Freckles and wrinkles and veins and scars. Can you spot them all? The weird thing about this hand is the vein pops out on top and looks like a capital M. Weird.
Theres also something about the way peoples fingers spread I can't quite remember. The pinkie on mine as you can see is always spread out more than the rest.
Indigo has this thing for licking hands. If you've been around here long enough you would have seen numerous posts with her tongue sticking out or her mouth gaping oddly in some sort of zombie horse pose.Actually she has a thing for licking people in general. No clue why she just decided the moment I took her off the trailer when she became mine that she wanted to lick people. You can try to stop her from doing it but she will find a way to get you with that slobbery big ol tongue of hers.If I don't pay attention she will lean over and lick my shirt (especially if it is white) and leave a trail of dirty slime on me. God forbid I don't pay attention to her int he barnyard whatever article of clothing I have will be shortly slobbered.
Theres the lines in hands that also tell you things. For instance I have what is called the "Loop of humor" see it? Click on the image to enlarge it.The loop of humor is a little loop between your pinkie and ring finger (Or Mercury and Apollo), kind of like a teardrop of lines. It means you have a very good sense of humor and find things others don't very funny. Did I mention the terror I wreaked on April fools day?
There are also whorls, loops, arches and tented arches all over your hands. Check it out
So what what kind of hands do you have?
