I've always loved John Collier's "Lady Godiva" (below). I was born in the Chinese year of the horse and have always felt an affinity with these amazing animals. My parents love to tell the story that as a young girl, I wrote a letter to God asking for a horse and then tucked in under my pillow. I guess I thought God had the same delivery techniques as the Tooth Fairy. Today's post is dedicated to my girlhood love of horses and the fantasy that I might one day become one with these beautiful beasts.
