    Do these two analyses make sense?

    Horace was first to feel the fresh air, because he was lowest to the ground. He began to bark.

    Question 1: In this case, 'to the ground' functions as an ADVERBIAL OF PLACE modifying the adjective 'lowest,' right?

    Question 2: In this case, 'to the ground' is also an ADJECTIVE COMPLEMENT of "lowest", right?

    Try:

    Horace was the first to feel the fresh air because he was closest to the ground. He barked at nothing in particular.

    Is Horace a dog?
