True grit, love and snow

A girl, an Icelandic horse and a snowstorm.

For me, this embodies stoicism,

Spirit, true grit

And love.

    I remember loving horses that much at her age. It wasn’t that cold where I grew up but I would get up VERY early to be at the stable- 4:30 I think. Girls + horses= true love. Great pic! Cheers, Danette

  22. Love the photo and I had a giggle as the horse looks to have a Mohawk hairstyle some teens would be envious of.

    March 2, 2013 at 20:49

    You know what Fiona? I don’t care what anybody may say about the snow and cold. I feel there is something so special about living in the Northern Hemisphere that is undefinable. However, your photos define it beautifully every single time! Thanks so much.
