All crits are welcome
I'll dive in here. No one should sink to the bottom without a comment except me.
It looks like you live in a lovely area with great potential, and of these three shot, I like the third the most. They seem to suffer a bit from composition problems. For the most part, containg distracting elements (fence posts). I suggest initially shooting the photos with the subject off to the side a bit one way or another. Try to draw the viewer into the photo. Tell a story.
I do like the first shot too. But the centeredness and the fence post coming out of his elbow sort of detract from the feeling I get from it.
The third would be better if it didn't include the fence post in the front and maybe shot from a little lower angle to break up some of the lines.

Check it out. Looking forward to seeing some more shots of your part of God's Country.
I'm going to second abraxas on there being a lot of potential for you to shoot in your area. And with all those horses, yay, looking forward to seeing more. Gotta give all the bird & otter shots a run for their money
Neat shot of the bit design in #2, I've never seen one like it.
Thanks so much for the crits, both of you. You are both right on with your comments. I love horses so I guess it's hard for me to see the forest for the tress... the bit i put up just to show the unusualness of it.
Will continue to work on form, setting and artistice composition...
