"Wait, Come Back!" (Portrait of Blue)

Blue is a mostly-Arabian gelding who's one of the herd where my mare lives. He's a bright, sensible fellow with one of the most endearing quirks I've ever seen: When he wants his person to stick around, play with him or just hang out and pay attention to him, this is how he asks. The turned head and the one front foot picked up daintily.

It's so characteristic that I was asked to use it for a portrait, so we got some snapshots and this is the result.  I couldn't be happier; I love adding something so unusual -- and so charming -- to my portfolio.
