Enjoying the Pasture!


I chose the photo, below, of Sonder for my "Creative Exchange" link this week.  I love the lighting, but more than that, I think I caught her curious nature.  All the other horses were too busy grazing to give me more than a "one eyeball" glance, but Saunders always gets so close it is difficult at times to take photos of her.


unless an "up close and personal" shot is desired!:




Looks like Sebastian also enjoyed rolling in the mud a bit...
Funny time of year.  One day it is cold (ha... is 40 degrees REALLY cold?) and then we enjoy warmer days in the 60's.  I did pull Oberon from grazing to workout in the arena ... but four above didn't even look up from enjoying the pasture to say goodbye to their buddy.

Poor Oberon...


And below is a charming video of a young Friesian stallian, Evan (son of Mintse) doing "tricks".  He is NOT related to my Sebastian, but he does belong to the same Friesian breeding farm where Sebastian's father, Raven lives.   Click HERE to go to the website.

Oberon doesn't look too upset at having to go for a stroll with his girl. That is a cute video.

Beautiful pictures as usual. Looks like you're having great weather to work with the horses.

Oberon doesn’t look too fussed he seems to be quite enjoying himself from the look on his face. I watched the video you posted it was quite interesting, Friesians seem to be popular for these sorts of tricks.

PS I took a look at your last post that I missed and left a comment.

That must be Jane Savoie! I know her voice anywhere. :)

Lovely example of a well-socialized, mentally-gymnasticized young horse!
