Glorious light and that rakish lock of mane gives him a wonderful jaunty look! Nicely captured Barbara! ;-)

Posó para ti, sin duda un modelo excelente y una foto muy natural y con un contraste de colores que la hacen más especial. Me encantan los caballos. Enhorabuena por tu trabajo ;)

Barbara - Just a beautiful light here and the horse is beautiful too. The composition is wonderful - there is no part of it that is not appealing to the mind and the eye..just beautifully done, Ms Thomas!!

This is wonderful ... and he seems to be posing just for you!
Surprisingly little snow on Mt. Moran, but it won't be long and it will be all white again. ;D

Beautiful color comp with the golden field and line of trees below those amazing mountains. He's a beauty too. I click when they turn their handsome heads to the side, or as you have done, move over for a 3/4 pose.

This is gorgeous and reminds me of a painting.....also reminds me of my younger days when my favorite person on TV was Roy Rogers and his horse Trigger whom they'd always capture behind a fence like this in a similar position.....I know sounds corny....what can I say ;)

Good evening Mrs. Thomas,
I like horses. The horse is beautiful and conveys that feeling of standing on the spot. The blaze on the forehead is almost identical as the snow on the mountains. The photo pleases me very well. 5 stars *****
Have a nice time nd all the best. Dear greetings from Christel
