the horse

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,

Friendship without envy,

Or beauty without vanity?

Here, where grace is served with muscle

And strength by gentleness confined

He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.

There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.

There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient

Ronald Duncan, “The Horse,” 1954

This is my friends horse Jeoff - he prances and rears on command !

 

I have finally figured out how to do a black background and I think it really suits this pic.
