Train symbol LADAF honks at a wayward horse in Trumbull

A horse thought the grass was greener on the other side of the fens and somehow managed to jump over it at a low spot. The horse was standing near the tracks when I arrived at this crossing in Trumbull to take pictures of northbound train LADAF on June 21, 1986. I thought, "This is going to get interesting." When the train began blowing for the crossing the horse took off at a dead run for the crossing where I was standing. I moved back as the train was about to over take the horse. The horse made a 90 degree turn and almost cleared the fence. You can see the cloud of dust where the horse took a leap of faith to get over the fence. It all happened so fast I barely had time to take the picture.
