Which of these pictures of My Boy do you like best? The one in color, or the one in black and white? You can click on the pictures to see them in better detail.
For some reason, I really like this picture. It's really unusual for me to take such a candid picture of my horse. Typically, he's looking right at me over the gate. Or, he's going around the arena on the longe line. Or, we're posing while someone else is taking the picture. Or, he's eating grass.
But this one really captures him in a moment that I see frequently, but never snap a picture of. He was leaving his "hangout spot" near the tree and walking down to the gate. He reached the muddiest spot in the pasture and stopped. You can tell he is very contemplative here. He lowered his head a bit, seemed to take a breath, looked once to his right, and then came to a decision. He continued walking down to the gate.
I'll never really know why he paused. I can only imagine exactly what he was thinking. He didn't like the mud? He didn't want to be caught? He heard something in the woods? But I like the lowered position of his head, the ears going two different directions, the breeze blowing lightly on his mane and forelock. I just don't know if I like it better in color, or in black and white!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
