#10 - A Horse

Have you heard about Rinda's 2012 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt? Rinda has challenged us to find and photograph a list of 21 items this summer - you can find the list and all the details on her blog here.
I am hoping planning to capture photos for each item throughout the next few weeks. This past weekend I captured my first photo: #10 on the list - A Horse.
When I saw this item on the list, I knew I would have no problem finding a horse as it is very commonplace to see horses here in north Texas. However, I did find it a little difficult to photograph A (one) horse because they tend to be found in small herds around here.
As you may have noticed, I had to do some close cropping to get the photo I'm submitting for the scavenger hunt. There were other horses in the background as well as a very similar looking horse nearby.
In fact, while we were out snapping horse photos, we pulled up beside these two at a traffic light.

Are you taking part in the scavenger hunt this summer? If so, which item do you think will be the easiest for you to capture?

fabulous looking horse - I'm not worried about finding a horse as the police in Edinburgh have mounted patrols (on horses). i think the swing from a tree and the bride will be my biggest problems

I love the picture of the horses in the trailer. I got a couple pictures before the hunt officially started, but need to get a fresh one.

great shot Melissa! The easiest one for me will be the library. I'm guessing the hardest one will be the bride.

oh my, I probably not have even focused on it saying A horse and would have gone with any I could find lol Love the photos. I think the pier is easiest (it's the one I have at this point) Thinking the bride will be hardest.

I know right where to find a horse to photograph, but haven't made it there yet. The first day I found the angel statue. I'm waiting til I have a few before I post them.

The angel was the easiest one for me to find but I have no idea where I'll find a horse. Guess that means a road trip for us. Your photograph of the horse is wonderful.
