Not His First Rodeo

At the photo shoot last week one cowboy's horse suddenly decided that she didn't want to cooperate and gave all us photographers quite a show. According to his owner, she has never bucked like this, but a couple cowboys knowingly shook their heads and commented "Never trust a piebald, moon eyed horse." Now I painted this horse red (artistic license) but she is actually a true piebald paint - black with blue eyes - and stunning in appearance and probably the best looking animal at the shoot.
The cowboy never got back on his horse for the rest of the day - she was too skittish and refused to settle down. But I got a good dozen photos, and even though it wasn't a "planned" set, I paid the cowboy for his "modeling". I was especially relieved that he wasn't hurt and rode the buck for more than the required 8 seconds before dismounting!
1 Samuel 16:7
But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
