A long journey

Horses, Photography 7 luglio 2017

There is no darkness so dense, so menacing, or so difficult that it cannot be overcome by light.

Almost four months ago, Opositor had a bad accident.
He stumbled while galloping and fell on his right hind leg.
When he managed to stand up again, at the beginning, I thought he had a broken bone as he almost couldn’t move his leg at all.

I was… oh really, there are no words to explain how I felt… A moment before a fierce and strong horse was amazingly galloping and enjoying himself and then, a second after… he transformed into a fragile, scared and shaking creature who could barely walk.

The vet arrived and after x-rays and ultrasound, found out he pulled a tendon in his hind leg.

For weeks he wasn’t even allowed to walk, as a bad move could have compromised his healing.
Fortunately he coped unbelievebly well and I’ve found out I’ve got a really patient horse, which helped a lot with his recovery.
Slowly, with no rush, we got there eventually and two weeks ago, when the vet said he was completely healed I was so happy, relieved and many other mixed emotions that I wanted to keep live the moment and celebrate it in my own way… doing what?
A photoshooting, of course!

So here you have my handsome boy in all his splendor!
Walking thru the darkness to reach the light again.

Because the light will always overcome the darkness in the end.

Sometimes, taking photos feels like you were living in a dream. Does it happen to you too?
