On my morning walk I pass by a horse farm and never find it dull to see what the horses are doing. In early spring, I watch them darting around their corrals seemingly showing off for a neighbor, and by late spring there's obvious flirting going on, but most often, that early in the morning, they're building their strength and eating. It's hard to distract them from that activity as you'll see in the attached photos.
I've been watching this filly for a year now and have fallen in love with her eyes and scruffy, uncombed mane. She's short and determined, a combination for which I have a natural proclivity. She's always in the corner corral which gives me twice the opportunities to photograph her at good advantage. The corral, like most out here, has two fences which makes it a challenge to get a photograph of any horse without one and a half to two fences in it. But this morning, Misty Morning, found the greener grass to be outside the first fence, and she was determined to get it. I watched her successfully munch her way down the west fence and all along the south fence, reaching her head as far through the first fence as possible, to get to the sweet longer grass that grew just beyond.
I think, at the end of the day, these photos demonstrate her determination and personality.
Just FYI: Peter applied HDR processing to each of these single photographs.
