After waking up
As I was washing her in the 8:30am still chilly 48ºF weather...I started to think perhaps I was a tad insane to be doing this. Especially since next up was braiding. Following her bath, I took the slightly shivering (I felt really bad about that) Rose outside to graze in the sunlight. It was nice and warm outside in the sun and her shivers evaporated instantly. In about twenty minutes she was mostly dry and happily full of grass. About a half hour later Hubs and JR arrived for the photo session and her dressage braids were finished. Happily it was still sunny out and we managed to get a couple really good shots. I like having the problem of picking my favorite of many! I am so glad I got Hubs into equine photography BEFORE we had JR. He does such a great job.
There isn't much more to say other than HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY ROSE! Without further adieu, here are my favorite photos from the day:
|Conformation. 6 years old.|
|Hugging my girl.|
|Hubs introduces JR to Rose....and gets a lick.|
Happy trails and swooshing tails!
