This is my friend's horse Farah, a young Fresian cross who looked quite spectacular against a snowy background.
Thank you for the vote and comment, well this image too is an excellent portrait you have captured.

What an adorable horse Tress Yours I presume , she looks so gentle
Technically, I think this photograph has been well-taken. The available light suited the subject. Given this lighting, in my opinion, the exposure is very good, especially considering you were photographing a dark subject on a light background. And the focus is on that dark subject.
Artistically, you have done well to limit the depth of field to the main subject, throwing the background out of focus. However, that said, even out of focus, I must admit that the tree behind the horse's head looks to me as though Farah has one hoof on a Van Der Graaf generator, so that the static electricity has made her mane stand on end. Therefore I would have cropped about a quarter off the top of the frame.
I see what you mean Peter lol. I'll post a Before/After. Thank you for your advice.
I agree with Peter, but still for me you have done a great job ,because I cannot critique your work. I am still far away to do so. Peter sure he is one that gives good advice to help. Dusfim
Thank you for your comment Dusfim.

What a great shot, well taken.
Adoreable and like the light to the right of the frame.
I kinda like the tree at the back .. gives the horse an electric prescence

An excellent horse portrait, I feel V2 does look better though.
