What's he doing Mama?

Do you find that horses, more than most other animals seem to be thinking when they look at you? Douglas Hofstadter, in his book "I am a Strange Loop", talked about the idea that various animals have different sized souls. Perhaps within the animal kingdom, horses are larger than most. This not-so-little foul was bery curious about what I was up to, but never ventured out from behind his mother's 'skirt'. Mom seemed to keep a pretty focused eye on me as well.

The black and white conversion was done in Lightroom. Since the horse in the back was much redder than the foul, I lightened her up to give more tonal separation. If I had a choice I would have preferred to not chop the nose of the rear horse, but my timing (and the foul's) was just a little off.
