All of these photos were taken with my pocket size Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS. For a tiny camera I think it does a pretty good job. I still prefer my Canon EOS Rebel T2i, but the "Elph" is easy to take on the horseback rides. But first, I had to get Oberon in the big back pasture where he spent the night with all the geldings for the first time... do you see them back there?
I worried a bit... but I guess everyone learns who to hang with and Oberon wasn't easily frightened - which surprised me as he is the smallest one out there. He appears relaxed until the last minute and then he puts that QH butt in gear and easily outmaneuvers the bullies. Actually, these two were pretty friendly - I guess they just had a small "tiff". But Oberon knows who his buds are...
Buddy (above) and Mystic (below) are his normal "roommates".
He looked up at me and ran away once. First time he has done that. So I pretended like I wasn't after him anyway and petted a few of the others and scratched their faces. I rode Oberon on the trail as it was quite hot today and the shade felt great. This was only his third time on this trail and he was excellent even though he was by himself - and I rode him with a very loose rein. I'm really falling in love with this boy.
