A Horse, Down In The Valley. November 23, 2012

I snagged this passing shot of a grazing horse in the low pastures of Amherst, where horses inhabit paddocks once cropped by dairy cows:

It’s a bitter-sweet sight, with these proud beasties being confined by fences, but still it excites me. Horses are such elegant beasts, patient in their captivity, yet holding on to what makes them wild.

I wish that we Humans could present ourselves that proudly.

I agree they’re glorious animals and I for one would be happy to see more of them. The local police department has a small mounted group and very occasionally we’ll see a couple out joy riding at the beach park. This is a lovely candid shot.
