A Moment in Time

I love this photo.

It's of a friend and her horse, Flea Bag, as they round a barrel.

There's such a oneness in horse and rider, horse and friend, that the barrel had not a chance in this world -- they make that barrel about as inconsequential as spit.

Look at the lines!  The speed!  The trust!

I could do without the hat, would rather see girly curls in the breeze, but I'm told that, like the wind in those parts, it's something I just don't understand.  Something to do with "culture." Harrumph.

Please do not reproduce this photo.
If you do, Flea Bag will run you down.
