Christmas Card With Bloopers




You'd never guess how much work and play goes into getting one good shot!  Here are the rest of the photos from this morning--a little grooming, a little loving, a little mischief, a little fear of candy canes!

Merry Christmas!

  1. Those were so much fun to look at. My daughters enjoyed looking at them all with me. We decided Cowboy is your big Teddy Bear, he just seems so happy and affectionate with you! And Beautiful is looking very elegant as she matures. And what happened to that candy cane, did BG eat it?

    Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas, Linda, with best wishes for peace and happiness in 2012.

  2. No, BG would have nothing to do with that candy cane. Do you see the goat horns in some of those pictures..and the dogs? Well, the dogs got to chasing the goats and I tossed the candy cane away to my husband and it smashed into about 50 pieces!

    I was so happy to get those pictures with Cowboy because he is my Teddy Bear and he brings me so much joy. Some of those pictures really captured him and I appreciate every photo I can get.

    Thank you for the good wishes, Joanne. Merry Christmas to you and your whole family!

  3. I know it's hard work to get a good shot. For most people, their smile is worn out by the time the horse puts his ears forward. You hung in there, though, and it paid off.

  4. NuzMuz--spoken from a photographer! It is very hard to get them to pose. I think my husband was getting more tired than I was. Most people don't want to stand there and take pictures for you for very long, but he was a good sport.

  6. Awesome photos! Even the "blooper" shots look great. The background with the trees is beautiful- definitely Christmasy :D We just got our first snow yesterday and it was only a couple of inches so it's been hard to get into the Christmas spirit here.

    I love all of your horses and their winter woolies! Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year :)

  7. Andrea--It was a lot of fun. Some days they're grumpy, but they were pretty sweet yesterday morning. Merry Christmas!

    Nikki--Thank you, and believe it or not, that is all hoar frost behind me. We haven't had any snow, and it looks like we're on track to win the a record for least amount of precipitation in a December. When I first saw the pictures the background almost looked fake, but that is truly our back pasture. Merry Christmas to you and your horses and your whole family!

  8. Beautiful photos--of Beautiful....and the other horses, too. I particularly liked the shot of Cowboy. His face looks much like my old horse, Gunner, who also has a blue eye. Cowboy looks like a very sweet horse. Merry Xmas to you and yours!
