Hey if you'd like to get email notifications of my blog postings, I've added a link to the right. Try it out! Don't be shy!

Black Horses, White snow!

Yes, it is STILL winter here in Ontario. Today, the last day of February, may be the turning point as temps here will range from -20c this morning to -3c by this afternoon...crazy!

...and that's the weather for back to our regular programming...HORSES!!!

I haven't had much of a chance to do winter equestrian photography, not that there isn't enough winter. It's just that I am a bit of a wimp at the thoughts of standing in the middle of a cold wind-swept field, fumbling with frozen fingers on the camera buttons, camera fogging up, battery draining.... So I was surprised how excited I was, despite my dislike for frostbite, at being able to go back to Stonegate Farm, where Wilby and Henk were awaiting their winter modelling debut. Oh what a day, clear blue sky, fluffy white snow, and shiny black horses (even with their hint of winter coats). I never dreamed my passion for the Paso Fino breed of horse could be challenged...but alas, I have found their equal in beauty in the Friesian Horse.
