Stars will burn through any mists, 
And the ladies’ eyes, through rains of fate, 
Still beamed upon the bloody lists 
And lit the joust of Love and Hate.

I’m no equestrian, and horses are best admired at a distance beyond which they can stomp, bite or kick - but that dapple-grey in pics 1 and 3 is a beauty, a real hero-horse, and I suspect is well aware of the fact.
