Horsing Around



Last weekend I was driving around, looking for a fun animal shot.

I found Black Beauty first:




Bu, as you can see, this photo isn't very good.
The fence is in the way, and it just isn't remarkable.


So, I kept driving around, looking for more animals.


Then I found a pair of horses hanging out by a barn.



The brown of the horse really compliments the barn,
but once again, those darn fences were in the way.

I didn't feel up for trespassing to try to get a better shot.

So, I kept driving, looking for a great critter capture...

And lo and behold, I found one.

I pulled over to the side of the road,
alongside a farm fence,
and whipped out my camera as fast as possible.

I caught a horse, rolling around in the dirt.





I wish I'd moved faster, because this horse was HILARIOUS,
but I managed to get only the one photo.

Before the horse got up and walked away with his friends.




That one photo is PRICELESS though.
Just hilarious.

The shot of the horse rolling was just perfect timing! LOVE it! I had a horse who would try to do that before I could get his saddle off of him... lol

Great shot Rhea, this proves you need to take many to get one good one. I take hundreds and there are always just a few outstanding ones!

Right place, right time, quick on the action - all payed off!
It isn't something you see everyday. Glad you got the shot.
The fences were in the way but the other horses are nice too. :)
