Me Next!

Blaze is always ready to volunteer. Sadly for him, he is third on the totem pole (of three), so he is usually last. But he is ready to be first any time!
Me Next!
See how eager he is? 🙂

Water Is Good!

In the middle of a drought and heat wave here in Oklahoma, the horses really appreciate their trough of water, even if the temperature is that of bath water.

Crazy Horse savors each sip.

Just a Fuzzy Muzzle!

Still bedewed with water droplets from his frigid early morning drink, Blaze’s fuzzy little muzzle is silhouetted against the sunrise.

Refreshing! - Winter 2011


This adorable post: http://h2obyjoanna.wordpress.com/2012/02/10/41365-snowy-nose-of-a-shetlander/ – from h2o by Joanna, a fellow photography blogger, is what reminded me of my shot of Blaze.

Alert!

I love the light in early morning on a sunny day, especially filtered by a canopy of leaves and intercepted and reflected by my horses!

What is approaching up the driveway? If you keep half an eye on your horses, there’s not much you will miss.

Something moving this way comes - 2010

Horses keep an eye on everything that moves – in this case, Mike, Zookie, and Buttercup running.

The Grass Was Greener

While this is a portrait of Blaze, Bridger’s POA (a Pony of the Americas – basically an Appaloosa in miniature), it is also an afternoon flashback, to a time when the grass was green. To when there was grass to be green! In the past we would have noticed Blaze’s eager expression, his black and white and pink coloring, his ratty old halter… This time when we saw this photo, Bridger and I both thought, “Wow, look how green that grass is!”

Blaze - Study in Black & White & Green - October 2010

We know Blaze and his buddies join us in hoping La Nina will relent and we will soon see green grass growing in the pastures.
