  1. What an absolutely wonderful shot! There is something very moving to me about this image: the stillness in this horse’s eye is so beautiful.

    • Thank you, Melanie…I think it might be the gentleness showing through…or maybe a beautiful melancholy, if horses can possess such feelings….

  4. Great shot Scott! It looks as though your subject is in deep thought…I wonder what a horse thinks about??

    • She does look rather thoughtful, Nancy…sweet memories, maybe? Thank you…..

  6. An up-close shot that really works. Clever idea well executed, Scott

    • Thank you, Andy…I thought the cropped image was more compelling than the entire head with background light/scenery, etc.

  8. I’m counting eyelashes. Why is everyone so convinced it’s a horse?

  11. Very good composition, Scott. What a gentle creature. I love this one.

    August 17, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    • Definitely a gentle creature, George…my little one sat for literal hours talking with this one…they sat head to head for minutes at a time while my son rubbed her chin and cheek….

      • Ah, what wonderful experiences for the children. They learn more from animals than from us sometimes. And, those communications become an integral who they are. It makes me feel good to know this, Scott. πŸ™‚

        August 18, 2012 at 1:21 pm

        • Yes, they are wonderful experiences, George…and it is true communion, somehow. You make my heart smile…. πŸ™‚

  12. Scott, this is wonderful. My daughter’s former equitherapy instructor would absolutely love this!

    August 18, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    • Thank you, Cathy…and I understand that equithereapy does wonders for little ones like ours. πŸ™‚

      August 18, 2012 at 1:45 pm

      • Hi Scott, my daughter did enjoy it. She worked with some great service animals! πŸ™‚

        August 18, 2012 at 4:03 pm

        • That’s good to know, Cathy…my son hasn’t had actual equithereapy, but we have a family friend who has horses and my son did take riding lessons for a while…and absolutely fell in love with the horses….

          August 18, 2012 at 5:32 pm

          • I can understand that! I must say, Scott that your lovely photo has inspired me! I have a few photos of my daughter when she’s riding. Who know? Maybe I’ll share by way of a write-up! Thanks! πŸ™‚

            August 18, 2012 at 5:48 pm

          • That would be wonderful, Cathy…I’ll look forward to it. πŸ™‚
