    This so reminds me of a beautiful painting and you can feel how humble this horse is by the way it bows its head against the winter storm..So patient and sweet.

    Great shot, the creature does contrast nicely against the snow, I feel for these animas who do not have the luxry of a heated place to be during such weather...

    We think of these wonderful creatures running in the spring in the meadows. Like we humans, we tend to forget, to get to the spring we must indure the unforgiving harshness of the winters.

    Thanks for the link Gloria! Absolutely one of my favorite songs too.. This little lady, named Sheba Dawn, is now basking in much warmer temperatures, well above freezing, for a while at least..
