Thanks so much! I'll definitely get rid of the butt and the rub.
This horse is a rescue we have on the property and his lip hangs like that.

I played with it in Photoshop for a while to see if I could crop it someway that worked and didn't come up with anything for my eye. Have you tried doing a crop with a cutout sheet? That way always worked best for me when I was doing logo work years ago.
I'm not trying to be overly negative, but honest. Do you have any other shots of the same thing? Because it's a very pleasing scene.
