I told Paint Girl the other day that I love taking pictures of her horse Fritzy's eyes. I wasn't sure why that was.
I think I figured it out. It's her long forelock. It is wispy and hangs over her eyes like fringed bangs, and I love how it looks in photos. (The hair in the above photo is actually her mane blowing in the breeze.)
It is interesting how the ends of Fritzy's black forelock are reddish-brown, bleached from the sun.
Would you recognize your own horse by just a cropped picture of it's eye?
I think I would recognize My Boy's eye in a heartbeat. Not hard to miss the 6 frizzy forelock hairs he has.
