The soul of a horse

"To understand the soul of a horse is the closest human beings can come to knowing perfection."

In my quest to photograph western theme subject matter for an upcoming exhibition I found myself on Memorial Day at Tom Sawyers where my daughter works taking care of their beautiful horses! I have to admit that I've always liked horses but they were a bit intimidating to me. But after taking photographs and helping water them I developed a much deeper connection with fact I even feel in love with many of them!! Cornbread, the cream colored one in particular was soo sweet!! Yes, there is now a horse in my future!!
In plenty there as well, were ground squirrels, rabbits and birds all pillaging the horses tender alfalfa hay! I enjoyed photographing their thievery and antics as well!!
An amazing morning spent in the company of such majestic creatures...hope I can create a drawing of equal beauty!!

Wonderful photos, Kathryn! I like the one of the sparrow (??) too! I can't wait to see a horse drawing from you! I should do a horse them, but haven't really drawn them for years!
