Harmonious Horseplay

While a little dog frolics past, horses nuzzle in a snowy pasture in Bucovina, Romania. Photographer Mihaela Jurca, who submitted the photo to Your Shot, writes, “The horses and dog belong to a local family, very kind and hospitable people … This pair [of horses] got away from the group, with the dog jumping around, so my eyes just followed their playful [and] tender moment, and the winter scenery inspired the shot.”
