A Horse Study

I live in "horse country." The moving sculptures that grace the nearby fields are lovely to look at. Today I tried to see if I could get closer to the horses. Did you know that horses have whiskers?
They also have great eyelashes...and this poor horse has a fly by her eye, and she's not even blinking. How does she do that?

The black horse, is calm too--do flies not bother horses? I think they do, as every so often, these horses have screens protecting their eyes. Maybe, one fly at a time is not a bother? I know a fly near my eye would bother me!

But then, maybe having a green field is more important!
