A wonderful capture! I heard the other day that only 8% of horses turn out to be white or light grey. They get whiter as they get older. This makes this even more special of a photo! Congrats on you POTD!!

While there are a lot of versions of this iconic shot (and I would love to have the opportunity to shoot one!), you've found a small but distinctive wrinkle. Most of the shots I see are all completely head on...I love the addition of the horse taking a nip at his colleague. It's so "horse" and adds a lot to the image!
