June 8 is National Best Friends Day, and while the origins of the day are murky (like so many commemorative days) who’s going to dispute a day to celebrate your most kindred spirit? We asked our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook communities to share photos of their horses with their best friends using the hashtag #BarnBestie. Here are some of the images you shared.
