Taken in Amherst, Virginia on a back road near where I live with my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. I saw some cows on the side of the road near some woods, so I had to pull over and get a few shots. Well while I was taking shots of the cows, I saw something move off in the woods…. and there were two horses!!! :)) So I called them and they came over. This is uncropped. They both got up close and personal. Such a beautiful horse. I’m so lucky to live in a place with such gorgeous animals all around! :))
