Jane is one of the percherons at Carriage Hill Farm & I have been trying to warm up to her lately. Imagine my delight when I walked up to the fence yesterday evening and she came running…. right past me and into the corral where there was fresh hay to eat. Man, was my ego deflated. She wasn't excited to see me, she was looking for a meal.
Sometimes, that is the way life goes. I made the most of the moment and took this picture as she ran towards me… um, I mean the food. Having a full grown percheron thunder by you is one of those events that makes the ground shake. You can feel the impact of her hooves crashing into the ground as she flys over the ground.

Note the high ISO, slow shutter speed and large aperture required to take this shot of Jane as she ran in the low evening light.
