Horses in Motion

As a child, starting about 3rd grade, drawing horses was my passion.  A recent visit to Mackinac Island, MI rekindled this passion.  Mackinac is a magical place: motorized vehicles
are prohibited; horses do the work.  So amazing to see the beauty and power of these lovely animals.
