Looking for a reference photo

So I had a really neat idea for a drawing today and would like to find a photo for reference (since I'm much more comfortable drawing from a photo) I was hoping some of you could help.
I'm looking for a close-up face shot of a horse. The face at an angle (looking diagonally across the picture) preferably. The type of drawing I'd like to do would go from the top of the forelock area to about halfway down the front of the face. That way there'd be a nice focus on the eyes and forelock.
Kinda vague details I know-but I'm going for a close-up portrait of the horse.
If anyone has anything that they'd be willing to let me use I'd be more than appreciative!
Thanks in advance~

Thanks everyone so far! Definitely a help.
LilKitty-the first one is pretty much what I had in mind.
Thanks again

I get what your wanting now! I just don't have any exactly like your looking for. I have some getting the whole face from the nose up. But none of just the eyes ears and forelock. Maybe I need to go take some for you! Lol
