This was shot down countyline road in Des Moines, Iowa. It was one of those nicer winter days. Cool but not bone chilling cold. The horse had been playing with others as I approached. They were throwing hay up in the air. As you may notice the hay still in the horses mane. I of course could not get the shot of them playing as they quickly noticed me and just watched me. So of course I patiently sat there watching them hoping they would forget I was there and get back to what they were doing. No luck at all with that! So I took this shot as the staring contest was in full swing.
