I met Simon as I walked on a public footpath through a farmyard on the Bowland Fells. The sound as I opened a gate to walk up the hillside brought him to his stable door. How do I know his name? It's engraved on a metal sign above his head!

This is a real nice photograph of a horse Tony. The colours and textures go well with the white of the horse. I don't see many green stable doors. Is that color common in your country?

Thanks Scott. I wouldn't say it's common, but it's not unusual - a natural finish is probably most often to be found. If you're from the USA I imagine you see a lot more red?
