I took a break from my work one morning to photograph these "animals" in a pasture in Doral, FL. I saw more compassion in 10 minutes there than I would the rest of the day. Edits done with Apple's iPhoto. Enjoy!

What lovely warm tones and magnificent light Michael. Your description breaks my heart, but we must show compassion and then there will be compassion. Hey? #5774190
