Spring Time with the Horses

From as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with horses. I loved the variety of the colors and breeds, and the wildness to them. There are a few quotes I have accumulated over the years that have stuck with me on the topic of horses. One is from the movie Secretariat, “More than three thousand years ago a man named Job complained to God about all his troubles and the Bible tells us that God answered. Do you give the horse its strength or clothe its neck with a flowing mane? Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting? He paused fiercely, rejoicing in his strength and charges into the fray. He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing, He does not shy away from the sword. The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground. He cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.” Such moving, powerful words. I started riding when I was 7 years old and haven’t stopped since. There is an old ranch I drive by quite often and every once in awhile I decide to pull over and just sit by the pasture full of horses. Some come to greet me and others continue on grazing. Some of my favorite photographs were captured here. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
