shakin' it off . . .

What could be more satisfying than a roll in the dirt?
This horse did just that, then shook himself thoroughly, leaving a choking cloud of dust swirling around him. :-)

Hi Dulcie - thisis really funny and a perfect shot. I really enjoyed going back through your past several images as I have missed your workl lately - very sorry about that! I love them all, especially the near previous one with the bottles in the window in Sisters, OR....really cool shot. Thanks very much for your comment on my cloud and strmy sky scene - I liked it too...took a little heat for not including a land element but I kinda liked it the way it was...Thanks again Dulcie - I hope all is well in Danville...I miss NoCal!!

Send this on to Cathy and Dale. What a time in the life of a happy horse. You could not have done better...his cloud is perfect. I have to clear my throat just looking at that. What a torque on the tail, you got it all.
