I was lucky enough to catch some photos of horses taking advantage of a warm spring day last March to act silly and do the playful things they do on a warm breezy day. That was at the Willow Tree 4-H fun show, which took place in an outdoor ring right next to the pasture where these fellows apparently got bored with the show and decided to create one of their own. All of the backgrounds had to be invented, since the horses had run up a lane towards the barn and the red walls of the barn were all I got in the photos. They were pretty far away and I was pleased that I had enough lens power on the camera to get some decent pictures. I’m also pleased that I’m getting better at paint handling on these board surfaces. The earlier ones were a little stiff looking because I just didn’t know how to make the paint behave the way I wanted it to.
Last week I went over to see a 3-week-old filly and her mom who belong to one of our trainers. Got some fabulous pics of the filly frolicking alone and with mom, which should show up soon in some more Aquabords. In the meantime, another horse show coming up soon, so I have the opportunity to display these new ones at my booth.
