pat and i took some shots with these 2 beautiful horses
Aries and Knight Train ... they belong to my step mom sandy
and are 2 of five that currently live in the stables
...it was so much fun to have them as part of the wedding...
sandy wrote up some information on them.
i thought i would be fun to share a little bit about their personalities :)
Aries is a buckskin Quarter Horse mare. 21 years old with energy to spare.
She is the alpha mare in the group and has enormous heart and soul.
She has a depth and understanding that is hard to explain
and is emotionally attached to her herd. She loves to be photographed
and is the undisputable queen of the barn.
She is ridden Western and English and has been in the family for 12 years.
KT, as he is fondly called, is a double registered Rocky Mountain and
Kentucky Mountain horse. He is large at 16 hands and recently turned 11.
KT is the best "ride" of all the horses. He is calm but exciting on the trail
and is part of an intelligent breed of horse. He is without a doubt "in charge"
when all the horses are turned out together. They acknowledge his leadership
and dominance and it is usually enforced by the flick of his ear.
He is truly the "gentle leader". He has been in our family for 8-1/2 years.
i made some floral garlands for them and they turned out gorgeous.
i will tell you more about em when i get the professional shots
back from the photographer....they looked stunning!
it was so special to have them as part of our day.
they were SO SO well behaved during photos.
i think they could feel the love :)

we drove past a huddle trying to stay warm during the christmas rainstorm
the bulldoggie had a few things to say.
i think she spooked em so we took off and came across this herd of deer.
i've never seen so many in the same place at the same time!
they started to disperse the moment we pulled over,
but i managed to snap a quick shot. i think there were about a dozen or so.
we were hoping to see a herd of bunnies next...no such luck.
maybe next time :)
