“Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.”
These ranch horses, set out to pasture, seem to pair up on their journeys around the wide open fields. From what I have observed, horses appear to have very distinct affections (or dislikes) for their fellow stable/field mates and pairing up in two is the norm. Sometimes it is for practical reasons (to swat flies from each other’s face with their tails) but it also seems to be for just for affection, too. Being sensitive in nature, I bet they find it comforting to have a buddy in eyesight. As I photographed this pair, two other pairs came sauntering up from the field on the other side of the road.
I am hoping to catch these guys in the snow this winter; I think a whiteout in this wide open space will make for a nice image. And snow may just come soon as it has actually gone down to below freezing the past few nights (as in the teens). 😮 BRRRR! My body is no longer accustomed to such temps although I welcome the change. For now.
