“In Fields of Gold” – Fort Stewart, Ontario
“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”
― Guillaume Apollinaire
We came across this little filly in a farm field near Fort Stewart. We had stopped to enjoy the grand view this little town offers and beside our stop was this little gal who wandered over to greet us.
It was amazing how much joy seeing her, petting her velvety nose, and feeding her lush clumps of grass, gave to all of us. It’s that simple happiness in unexpected places that seems so rare nowadays. The view of the Little Mississippi Valley was still there, but the focus was on this small single horse who was equally happy to receive all our attention, for a few moments.
She made a nice subject for me to photograph, surrounded by tall clumps of goldenrod that stretched into the distance.
