Standing Tall

On the way to Galt, California to buy a few bales of hay for our three hay eaters.  My husband was at the wheel of the truck when he heard me say, Stop.  I saw this beautiful paint gelding in the field near the road and wanted to get out and take a look at him.  This stoic fellow was very happy to have company and seemed willing to pose as I took a few photos.  Paints are a beautiful breed.  Their coloring is always a lovely surprise, like puzzles in a box.  Heading to Galt made for, "A Painting Day".
