Arriving about the same time as Hurricane Irene hits the NC coast, Oberon should be arriving in our part of NC. Far enough away from any damaging storm, but appreciative of any rain it might bring. And it is about time Oberon arrives, as the rest of my photos are not the greatest. I just love the photo above as it shows you how sweet Oberon is... my daughter's feet were flopping and dangling along with the stirrups and he is mostly leg driven. He was really trying to listen to directions - you can tell by his ears.
The one below makes me laugh. Poor Oberon, waiting patiently for me to get the background set in my viewfinder and my daughter to smile prettily... and we just about took his eye out with the halter. Oh well, we will make it up to him.
