4 January 2008

A few more pictures from yesterday. This is Girl Sonny (Taxes' momma). She is 18 years old now and this is one of the first times I have seen her have such fun. She was bucking and ran around the whole field harassing all the other mares as she went.
This is Eb's (the B&W colt) momma, Cat, she is one of the mischievious ones and does very good rearing and cow hopping (jumping with all four feet off the ground at the same time) when she is fresh and happy. I believe she rides but have never ridden her, seeing some of her antics makes me a bit wary LOL, she is also quite a bix buxom mare.
Cat doing another Hi Ho Silver with Piglette in the background and the three fillies in the foreground. I wish I could have survived the cold a bit longer because they still had a bit of life in them but my fingers were freezing off by this stage LOL.
And last but not least, this is BB (Eb's sister and Cat's daughter) doing the all fours up thing like her momma does. Not the most attractive angle LOL but she was having such fun. That is Dosie (the gelding - Eb, Cayenne, Lori and Wiggles daddy) behind her. I love the shadow on this one LOL.
The contrast of the mud on their coats still and snow is quite strange. The day before these were taken it was just a muddy mess and they love to roll in the mud as much as they love to roll in the snow.

Still cold today but not as bad, around freezing and tomorrow it starts to warm up with 50s by Sunday. I am hoping for some friends to bring a few of their horses over (ones we sold to them, Dosie's babies) to give me some moral support so that I can start enjoying my horses and getting miles on them so I can go out on the trails safely.

Well that is about it for today. Hope everyone is staying warm, have a great weekend (((Hugs))))

You can just tell that they are loving this weather with the snow. I smile every time I come here and think about horses for an hour or more after I leave.

Your photos are awesome. The horses almost seem to be in motion.

Such a strange sight for me -- horses in the snow. Loved reading about who was doing what. They really look so full of life and fun.

I love that shadow in the photo, too. All four feet off of the ground!

Has anyone ever seen a cow cow hop? Just wondering.

Stay warm!

Hey Lori, I hope you are having a good weekend! Another collection of superbly sharp and well exposed images! It's great to be back and able to see your work again :o) And that shadow in the last shot is excellent!! {{HUGS}} xx

Happy New Year! {{{HUGE HUGS}}}

Just got home from Toronto today, so doing some catching up while the jetlag catches up with ME.

Love the photos - what fun they are having in the snow :) I must say that I enjoyed the snow back home too, so know what they might be feeling!

Stunning pictures as always. These horses always look soooo good in the snow.

Hope you are doing well and keeping warm. Got to 60 here yesterday and we are pushing for 70 today.

Take care,

the horses look like they're having a great time in the snow.

The very last mare in the pic with the shadow needs a diet. See her fat rolls.

Dandy got like that this summen with Rachel caring for him. I couldn't believe the jiggle when he walked. I was glad he didn't founder.
