Really nice detail and colour in the entire image Heather. Very nice to see Shawnee’s reaction to the deer. Nice that you were able to capture the moment and share it.

Thank you Debra.. I always get a chuckle out of this photo and that's one of the things about photography I like best.

Moose, deer and coyotes passed through her pasture every so often and it was always fun to record the scene when I got a chance to. She's was a curious horse and pretty tolerant of other animals but this time she spooked the deer :)

Very nice moment that you capture there Heather. Beautyful crisp details and colors all over the photo. Hope they had become good friends.

No action goes unnoticed in a horse's pasture and Shawnee was no exception to the rule when she spotted a mule deer intruding on her territory.
