Elvis is loved and owned by Lila! I thought this was an interesting photo. The details of the bridle with the white nose band. His beautiful eye clearly listening to his owner. The thick mane. There is something hidden in this photograph, can you find it? Just "fits" into a spot. Take a close look. Yep, that is the boot and stirrup of another rider. See it?
Hanna and her colt Picasso. Gaiting in sinc. Same legs in motion! Love that Picasso's head fits perfectly in the arch below his Mother's. The happiness they are sharing in this moment. Hanna's tail held high and proud! The blur of the tree's and their bark in the background giving the photograph motion.
Meet Quatro. A Rocky Mountain horse! Sometimes, a photograph speaks for itself.
"Did you hear that?"
"Hey Ma! I'm a bucking bronco!"
Love this little guy Picasso trying out his wings! Or, his feet! The serious look on his face as he bucks up in the air! Weeeeeee! Love his tail swooshing upwards, the strong hips, the feet in motion! Like the blue colored fence boards, the water sprinkler, and the blur of the colored flowers to the far right.
Colts just wanna have fun!
Picasso is owned by Paulina at Blue Poppy Farm, Aiken, SC.
Here is a better view of the little colt you saw peeking out behind his mother from the last post! He is a Tennessee Walker and named Picasso! He is owned by Paulina at Blue Poppy Farm here in Aiken, SC.
He to me almost looks like a painting! I love the different colors of his coat. I was told that he is shedding out his baby fur. It was interesting to see the different highlights he has, so he almost appears as a "horse of a different color" (OZ) in each photo. Loved his soft fluffy mane. The thick fur in his ears. The prickly chin hairs! Who knew they are born to perfection and God sure didn't cut corners on such a masterpiece. I like to think that he is deep in thought about his new life. So much to learn! He is so attached to his Mother, and she is teaching him about life every single second. The bond that they share together was miraculous to watch. I have never been around a young horse before, and I definitely was in awe. Smart whippersnapper! He was moving my feet (in horse terms this means if they can make YOU move, they are in charge and the alpha. Same as in a herd, the horse that can move the other horses away from food, a spot of grass, or just for the fun of it, is usually the horse in charge. There is a pecking order too, to a herd.) Back to what I was saying, he was moving me and I didn't even realize he was! Marleen, his care taker was laughing and said, "first Laurie you were over here, then you were over there, and made a big circle over there!" "HE MOVED YOUR FEET!" She got a big kick out of that and I did too. A little horse with a big horse inside! I think I will be sharing more of these photo's here on the daily photo before unveiling the entire gallery. Hope you like him! Would you let him move your feet?
DEFINITION: is a phrase used in children's games, which is generally used to indicate that people who are hiding (in a game of hide and seek, for example) can safely come out into the open.
Well, let's see how many of my viewers remember this phrase! I do, of course...
You are looking at the most devoted Tennessee Walker Mother named Hanna. Her little foal/colt named Picasso. I have had a wonderful time photographing these two. There will be a gallery soon. But, wanted to share my favorite. They belong to Paulina at Blue Poppy Farm.
What do I love about this photo? So much. The beautiful mother/mare eating away at the green grass. The beautiful colt named Picasso playing and trying to get her attention. Love that he is full of character. "Look! I am as big as you MOM!" "Look! I am the alpha dude now!"
Love his eye, love the nose and mouth. Love that he is almost invisible behind his Mom, except for his head popping up above her. Love the ONE ear! Priceless...
