Beautiful image, Karen. And such a nice dedication to Barbaro. I wish he and all horses could live out their lives in comfort and luxury. He is, indeed, at the Rainbow Bridge.

Nice dedication to Barbaro who was a National treasure. Love this capture with beautiful color, lighting and composition, Karen. By the way Nancy Green is considering a shoot in Austin this spring and may contact you for interest.

Thanks alot, Emile. Nancy did contact me and I told her to keep me posted. With 3 horses and 5 cats plus Mike's mom who is 90 it's hard to make plans too early. I've not been down that way in many years and would love to go. I'm hoping things will work out where I/we can go.
