You may recall that, for the past two years, I have participated in the Corolla Wild Horse Fund Calendar contest.

And I have been incredibly honored to have had one of my photos chosen both years.

Now it’s time to submit photos for the 2017 Corolla Calendar.  As in the past, I’m going to share with you today the three photos I chose to send, and ask you  which one you think MIGHT possibly be selected by the judges.

Once I learn IF either of these is a winner, I will randomly select, from the comments on this post, one of my readers who chose that photo. This time, I will pick two winners: one blogger and one non-blogger.  If neither photo is chosen for the calendar, we’ll still have two winners here on These Days: I’ll just pick two readers from the comments submitted. Winners will be chosen from comments left here on the blog.

What will the prize be?  I haven’t decided yet; it will be a surprise!

Here’s picture one:

So….tell me what you think.  Which photo do you think has a possibility of being selected for the next Corolla Calendar?

You already know how much I enjoy taking pictures of these horses and how much Motor Man and I enjoy driving on the beach to catch glimpses of them.  The folks with the Corolla Wild Horse Fund work tirelessly to care for these beautiful animals (all the while letting them remain wild and free unless it’s absolutely necessary that they be removed from the herd).  I’m pleased to support that organization in any way possible.

Having one of my photos appear in their calendar is simply icing on the cake.

  1. OOHHHH!!!! It’s too hard to choose! How did you narrow it down to 3? It’s a tie for me between Number 2 and Bachelor #3. I’m going with #3. Good Luck to you – You’re sure to win a month again. They’re so good.

  2. they are all very good photos…I am partial to #2, however, I feel #3 will be a winner b/c of the ocean shot.

  3. I’m picking #3… All your pictures are once again, “Awesome”!

  4. Number 3!!!!! But they are all terrific. 🙂

  5. Gosh, all three are beautiful. If I have to pick, I’ll go with #2. It’s a great nuzzling shot. Good luck!

  6. I love them all but I think I have to go with number 3 because of the watery background. They are all three amazing. Two comes in second. 🙂 Good luck!

  7. I am going with # 2. Love the mama and baby! But I am sure they will choose #3 because of the water.

  8. I like Number #1 – I think it’s rare to get such a beautiful shot of a pregnant mare – so you might be the only one with such a photo… but they are all gorgeous. My suggestion for a prize – one of those lovely calendars!

  9. They are all so beautiful it’s hard to choose but I think number 1

  10. I’ll have to say #2 … a lot going on right there that’s unspoken !

  11. I’m partial to “mom’s to be”! So pick #1!

  12. Each shot is extraordinary and beautiful but I must choose #3
    with the ocean in the background. This one is unique for sure.

  13. Connor likes number 1 and I choose number 3. They are all beautiful.
    Good luck !

  14. A very difficult choice! All three are special and unique! I vote for #3. I love the ocean in the background, the colors and the two horses lying down !! Good luck!!

  15. I like #2 the best, though #3 is a close second for me.

    All three are beautiful pictures, Dianna. I really like #1. What is more beautiful than a mother waiting for her baby to be born even in animals.

  17. This is so hard! I don’t know how you narrowed it to three, either! My first thought–#2 appeals to me. But then, there’s the ocean in the other two shots. My guess is Bachelor #3 will bring home the prize.

  18. Beautiful pics as always! I vote for #3. Amazing the two mares are in the exact same pose as Bachelor #3 keeps protective vigil 🙂

  19. This is such a treat. My whole family so enjoys your blog, I can’t tell you how much, and naturally we all picked different horse photos as our favourite. I adore the pregnant mare. Oh, all of them. Perhaps you should have posted about ten or twenty. It would be such sweet agony just looking at them over and over, trying to decide! I’m going to pick precious #1.

  20. I think picture 1 because it has it all, what looks like a pregnant mare and the ocean. 🙂

  21. They’re all great Dianna but my favorite is the last one. Good luck!!

  22. Picture one! Picture one! Picture one!!

    But I loved them all … MJ
