(Christmas 2017--Bee and me in the snow)
For Christmas I asked my daughter for a tripod that would hold my phone camera. My hope was to be able to get pictures of my horses, and my rides, to post on this blog, without having to ask anyone for help. I've worn my husband and kids out on that account.
me: husband, can you come outside and take a video or picture of me with the horses?
me: Can you take another? That one didn't turn out good?
husband: i guess.
me: Can you take maybe 20, and then we might get one good one?
husband: (muffled--cannot translate.)
me: Daughter, can you take a video of Cowboy "at liberty"? It's so cute the way he follows me around.
daughter: i guess.
me: weird. he's not doing it. he keeps going to you.
daughter: i'm done!
So, as you can see, I've gone solo. My iphone slides into a bracket on the tripod, and it has a remote to snap photos or start the video.
Be warned: There are going to be lots of videos and photos in 2018. Let's hope it all goes well! No scary buck-off video allowed!
Oh, and those boots I'm wearing are Sorrels. I cannot recommend them highly enough if you're riding bareback and don't need to put your foot in stirrups. They keep my feet so warm--even with thin socks on--it is just a miracle.
And, if you were wondering if I came off my Christmas high, the answer is yes. But I do have one more celebration with the kids and grand-kids tomorrow night, so that will be quickly remedied!
