Shades of Grey, Camera Critters

A wonderful Icelandic stallion who lives nearby. He gets a very thick coat this season. He is beautifully grey with a dark ridge on his back. I like the velvet look on his muzzle (it is soft as it looks). SOOC as I could not decide what to do..... any suggestions?  visit Camera Critters

Gorgeous animal! He looks like he's quite used to having you around. Do you bring him the occasional treat?

He's beautiful, and his muzzle definitely looks soft and fuzzy.

You have it just perfect...I love the details in his fur! I also love the basically monotone image w/ that touch of red in the fence...one of my favorites of yours! :)

Wonderful looking horse, so unlike what I think a horse is!

Feed him a few apples to get him to smile is all I can think of too. Gorgeous!

HÄstar är så speciella. Nu har någon köpt alpackor här på norra Öland. Måste hitta dem och fota när vädret blir bättre.

I like him just the way he is! :0) I wanna hug him, he looks so soft and welcoming.

this is a very special photo, well done, I like the stallion and admire his robustness staying out in deep wintertime. He looks as if he knew you from your visits ...

This beautiful SOOC. I love the winter horse coat, it's so shaggy.

What a beautiful pony! With that shaggy coat, he looks like he fits right into the environment.

He is beautiful and I wouldn't do a thing to the photo either. I love that shaggy hair, I've never thought of a horse as cuddly looking but this guy is. Great shot!

Very beautiful stallion! I like the way the frost defines his nose/nostrils. His winter coat looks more than ample to keep him toasty in your winter weather! A really nice photo--you had it perfect in the camera!

I agree with everyone who said the photo is perfect the way it is! The composition and clarity are great.

Looks like he was waiting for you!! Lots of nice detail in this image. I agree with everyone, I would leave it the way it is.

Just beautiful. The fence makes a great leading line.
