Friday Fun - Name That Horse!

The hallways of Blood-Horse Publications are a gallery of spectacular equine art. A couple of weeks ago, I challenged you to name a horse based on a painting in one of our conference rooms.  Who's up for another challenge?

This time, let's make it interesting:  the winner (randomly selected from the best responses) will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Blood-Horse Photo Store.

Below are four images.  Identify as many of the horses as you can and post your response as a comment to this blog. Make sure to include an email address in the space provided so that I can contact you if you win. (NOTE: I will hold all responses until noon on Monday, Aug. 18; all answers will be published and the contest will end at that time). Click on any of the thumbnails to see a larger version.
