  1. Oh my, what a powerful shot Allyson. The sheer determination of that lovely beast in her winter coat straining against that miserable winter wind and snow – such a metaphor! This is truly a winner.

  2. Oh my goodness! A winner indeed. I want to frame that and give it to one of my “ranchin’ nieces to hang above the fireplace. Absolutely perfect. The lovely old fence, the lovely thick-coated dear old horse, much loved (you can tell by the beautiful halter), the straggly winter tree, the reality of life on a farm, no cosy stable for this working’ lady. Marvellous.

    I don’t know who gets the most points for being stoic… the horse or you. Hardly pleasant conditions for picture snapping. But worth it! What a shot. And I love that Barbara can tell the quality of the halter. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen this ‘shaggy’ breed before. Beautiful animal. And you’ve captured the movement of the scene so well… the snow, the horse walking. Because, of course, who but a photographer would stand still in this!

  4. Cheryl Andrews says:

    What a handsome creature and even in winter coat it looks cold pushing into that snow squal … wonderful capture, Allyson!
