Friendliest horse I've ever met. Not that I've met many horses. I shot this image a long time ago when I was still figuring out how I could make money with the camera. Back then I was making a meagre living doing real estate photography and I was on a 20 acre property shooting the grounds. I'd wandered into the stable, looking for something interesting to supplement the house and paddock shots, and this horse walked up to the opening to check me out. I know absolutely nothing about horses but she didn't look like she was going to bite (although I wouldn't know what that looked like) so I reached in and gave her a pat. She seemed to like that so I spent some time with her, marvelling at her size and the way she moved, keeping her company. I loved the way she was lit, the dark contrasts and the way she was framed in that opening, so I took this shot just for me.
