I posted this one quite a while back in another forum, I think it fits this challenge also. I was taking some photos of a friends barn and the horse peeked in the window at me.

Bob, great photo. Feels like a curious champion race hourse's day visiting at the farm or something.

I always wanted to get a photo of a horse's breath... and here in Romania it's possibel in winter, but I never succeeded yet... maybe next winter.

Only after seeing it in real did I understand why so many painters caught such a moment (horse's breath) billowing out of dual nostrils in paint / canvas / paper so much.

And I like many photos of it too. I'm jealous of your pic.

Well done, and the background (e.g. horsehoe, etc) matches well!

Love the photo I agree with all pj1974s comments.

Need to turn the horse shoe upwards, as the old saying all the luck will run out.

The stranger asked to see the shoe;
The farmer brought it into view;
But when the old man raised his head,
He laughed outright and quickly said:
"No wonder skies upon you frown,
You've nailed the horse-shoe upside down;
Just turn it round, and soon you'll see
How you and Fortune will agree."

Excellent photo, Bob. Capturing the horse's breathwas awesome. For some reason the horse reminded me of Mr. Ed.

Nicelittle rhyme, Mike!
