Horses GalorePublished by LeadMare • Jul 29th, 2012 • Category: Featured Blog, LeadMare Tales
HAPPY SUMMER GHCers! In my little corner of the world, life has been flying by at gallop speed, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the scenery and snapping away with my camera. How’s your summer of horses? Please share in the comments. And if you’re a camera geek (like me) who loves to photograph horses, use the image submission form and we’ll feature the best here on the GHC blog.
Meanwhile, enjoy this mix of photos taken during recent wanderings…
GOT TREATS? Jack, a sweet little mini and the boss of his full-sized buddy True, comes out to greet me. (Bristol, Vermont)
THE BIG APPLE. A beautiful antique wooden carousel horse looks out over the hustle and bustle of the New York City streets. (New York, New York)
SOULFUL. If this blue-eyed boy could talk, he’d have some sad tales to tell about life before he was rescued. (El Dorado Hills, California)
CURIOUS. When you point a camera at a horse, all but the skittish are quick to sniff out the odd contraption pointed at their face. I could probably fill a museum with photos of horse noses. (El Dorado Hills, California)
KISSES. My friend has trained her horse to softly kiss anyone who offers him a treat, and I’ve received many sweet (and slobbery) kisses from Coda. He’s a bit camera shy, so having my phone camera pointed at his face was not completely comfortable. But he tolerated me, and it was nice to return the favor — even though I got a mouthful of fur in the process. (New Milford, Connecticut)
