16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Child and Horse

Promises to White Spot. My son petting the horse that he named “White Spot”. While petting him, he was talking to White Spot and telling him how much he liked him. During this conversation he proceeded to make White Spot a promise that we would return tomorrow to visit him with a statement that “I don’t break my promise to horses”. It truly seemed as if the two had a connection and I am glad that I was there to experience this touching moment between a child and animal.
