The day I took the reference shot for this painting was hot and muggy and the gnats were thick around these horses. The two in back were facing head to tail in order to swish the flys off each other face. The one in front was shaking her head back and forth to fend off the gnats. I felt so bad for the horses, I wish I could have shared my Bug Soother with them.
