A Single Photograph

“Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses.”
- C.W. Anderson -
One of the beautiful animals I've had the privilege of photographing this summer.

  2. What a noble countenance! And that quotation is so true. Remember what poor Black Beauty had to endure. And War Horse.
