I come back to this image over and over again in my favorites, every time it pops up on the random favorites list I click it open and have a good ol' stare at it.

A lot of people have said it's depressing and bitter. I think it's inspiring. I get the impression he's dragging himself up out of the dirt, old and battered , knocked down, but still getting up, moving.

I think it depends on how you perceive his eye? For a while I saw his eye as an open eye, looking upwards. When I look at it harder I saw that it's close, so the 'open eye' is really caused by a highlight on his eyelid, but I guess my first perception stuck with me.

A beautiful, beautiful image that'll stick with me indefinately. <3

Wow, this sure is a somber and bitter themed picture. That's a very well drawn horse. Love the mane.

Poor thing, the vet wouldn't have a clue what to do with 'im. Though I guess if anyone finds his body fast enough, they get some free spare parts and some free money from the glue factory...
