Best Friends

Horses are very much like people - with distinct personalities, moods, good and bad days. They also develop friendships with fellow horses.

These two, Caesar and Cody, are best friends. They've been boarded together for at least four years, but became a pair of best buds when we bought Caesar two years ago and our daughter's friend, Jordan, bought Cody. They now live in adjacent run ins, the girls have lessons together and take them on trail rides together.

It's no surprise when they are let into the pasture that they gravitate towards one another. That's what best friends do, right?

Best Friends With Texture

I added two texture layers to the above photo - Kim Klassen's Minus 43 texture in Soft Light (100%) and the same texture in Linear Burn (10%).

Here's the original photo:
Best Friends

I liked how the texture lightened the photo up and added a golden hue to the scene. It almost feels warmer, right?

Every being needs one of it's own kind around. Our pups are the same way and simply adore being together with each other. I've been told before that if you pass a field and see a horse in it that most likely there is another horse very close by. xox

Shirley, these are absolutely beautiful, and how fortunate you were to be able to capture this.

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Love this image! And I love seeing a "broomtail" Appaloosa as one of the "friends."

Beautiful! I love how the texture warms and softens the horses and also brightens the horizon.

I love what the textures added to this photo!
Horses really do "buddy up" don't they? :)

So gorgeous! Love the sunset behind the horses!

I love horses and I agree with what you've said about them. I lived with them for nearly 20 years but now we are horse-less.
Thanks for sharing how you applied your textures.

Oh so lovely! You are right- the tones from the texture really add to the already beautiful image. Love the horses- and the sunset! Well done!
