Annie's Story

Due to her neglect and abuse from a previous owner , she had to be sedated to get her in the trailer . She came off the trailer like a wild animal .. snorting and striking out. That was a year or so ago . As you can see today she is a loving trusted friend and mount . All it takes is love , language , leadership and a hug every once in a while, not so different than you and I .

She has fire in her eyes......the fire of loyalty! And she has love in heart always for her rescuer! Great shot.....even better story!

She is beautiful & this capture is so full of emotion. I know from raising dogs that they all get their daily hugs. I have taken in abused & neglected dogs / cats over the years ... it can be a challenge to get them to trust again, but like you said some love, hugs, & communication is all it takes. A touching story, Marsha.

The love just oozes from this one, JenNay.
A dandy of a shot for sure.

So heart warming Marsha, I'm wondering who is the lady in your picture who has given her love, and turned things around. I really like this one my friend. I'm so glad that they have found each other. Tigs♥ =^..^=

What a wonderful story behind this lovely capture and I do like the colour or filter effect you add to this photo too and nice sharp detail and very good composition too.

Wonderful shot Marsha. Often the damage is so deep (especially with dogs) that it cannot recover. Glad this one could.

With all the cruelty in the world Annie's a fortunate horse Marsha. I can see a lot of tenderness in this shot, & I like the post editing.

Wishing you all the best in the B/W challenge

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
