Caught two Steens Oregon Stallions testing each other. I enjoy the action out there to the fullest.

I enjoyed the lively display of the horses plus the softer light and the contrast of the horse in the B/G just eating as if nothing was happening.

Love the action, Terry. These two are like coiled springs and the tension in evident as they each strive to outdo the other with arched necks, bared teeth and flying hooves - while the background grazers have seen it all before!

Nice capture of the posturing stallions. Always a joy to see this kind of action, especially when the horses are colorful like these are. Layering of BG is nice, too.

So much tension in those muscles-so striking...literally! I like especially how they are situated back to back and so full of life and action. Beautiful horses and beautiful light.

The best wild stallion action I have seen in a long time, Terry. Congratulations on this fine photograph.
