Herman, I knew we had to have a thread devoted to horses, but had missed it until just now! Very nicely done - I like the layering of color fields, literally as well as figuratively. Very nice contrast with this almost pure white horse. Great view!

He is a handsome fellow and he does know he's not an Arabian.

One of my former cameras Nikon E8800 in 2005. I need to go back and take more photos ... and win some money!
Kevin, I am shocked, shocked, shocked that you would bet money!

BB, you got me. I only make $2 bets, my wife is the gambler. I am only reckless with my money on camera gear
Loving this thread. I used to ride a lot and worked the spring and summer drive on a small family ranch for six years in a row. However I no longer have access to horses on a regular basis and miss it.
I love horses, too, Dave. During my college days, I had the great fortune of becoming friends with an older farmer fellow - a real character who became a great friend. He had several hundred acres and a spring fed watering trough.... He and some of his family helped me buy my first horse...and I had the time of my life... Many happy memories riding through the countryside with my faithful Shetland Sheepdog following me through the fields and woods...and even riding up on the saddle with me, if we needed to cross a state road. Ah, the good old days. I don't think I can ever see enough of horses.
not one myself
Never owned one myself, but I was up on the ranch often enough that I had a horse reserved for me when ever I showed up. Yonder was his name and faithful was his step.
Anyway I dug up a few older pics, (from an old point and shot).
I am grinning ear to ear
My wives first time ever on a horse. She was a bit scared, but did a great job.
Several years ago my niece at a local fair
Those are great memory pictures, Dave. Your niece is a cutie pie!
retow - wow! Talk about an action shot - and real race horse, glistening with sweat! Beautiful!
Here's a happy chappy from the homestead...

What a beauty Ricky! I'm taking the horse and the shots!!!!
I'm assuming she's a quarter horse? Nice strong chest...and in stride you can really see the Arab blood coursing in those veins!
Loving the character of that smile stillshunter and the shot by shot texascbx.
Quarter horses for sure. :smile:
