And, Once Again….Horses

I know it’s difficult to imagine, but I’m starting off the week with pictures from a recent trip to Carova.

Since I made some errors in the last post in which I attempted to name the foals in the pictures, I’m just going to leave this at “this is one of the babies”.

As you can see, it was a gorgeous day on the beach (although we had some rain on our way there, and there were serious clouds in the distance).  The horses were out enjoying the beach, which always makes for great photo ops. This was a stallion who was involved in a disagreement with Raymond, the resident mule.

And you can see for yourself in this video that the “sand was flying”. The Corolla Wild Horse Fund folks always say, when referring to Raymond: “Shhh…don’t tell him he’s sterile”. Raymond thinks he’s as much a stud as any stallion on the beach. (Be sure your volume is turned up.)


We also saw something we’d never seen at Carova. Although this isn’t a foal from this season, we’re thinking it might be one from the past year or two. Apparently, it was time for Mom to get up from her rest.

Recently I found the perfect shirt to wear while photographing “my” horses on the beach.

Motor Man and I had another wonderful day.

And remember his broken shoulder? THIS is his physical therapy.  (Don’t tell his doctor.)

That’s my wheel man Motor Man!
