"Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
friendship without envy, or beauty without vanity?
Here where grace is laced with muscle and strength by gentleness confined."
Excerpt from the poem The Horse by Ronald Duncan
Dawn was the ambassadress for Chief's herd. She was gentle, beautiful, friendly, smart, and everyone loved her. I was very sad when I learned she passed away last year. In selecting a photo of her to share this month, I came across this one an immediately knew this was the one. There are lots of photos of her, usually highlighting her beautiful mane, but this felt immediately intimate and fitting.
This photograph was taken on May 20th, 2019 at Return to Freedom's Wild Horse Sanctuary location in Lompoc, in California's Central Coast region.
