    The third shower of the day was just starting, and I wanted to get back to the house. The old (30+) girl however was out inspecting the pasture, and enjoying the cool temperatures. I watched through some bushes from about 60 yd. away until she finished nibbling on some grass, and then caught her peeking around to see where I had gone. Yes, she could use a good brushing and the pasture needs to be mowed again – if and when the rains let up:smile:.

  2. She looks fantastic for 30+. I have a 32 year old that's still doing well.

    I would have cropped this the reverse way you have, and left more room in front of her than behind her.
     
  3. she does look great for 30+
    Nice image Bob

    Thanks Linda and Dave -- she'll be pleased that you like her:smile:.

    Linda, I can't do that because of the way I framed the original. However, I did take the original, and synthesized more foreground so I could try your suggestion -- you're absolutely right -- thank you.

    "She thinks so too"

    I can't say I blame her.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Thanks Dianne. Yes, she's an Arab all the way. We've had several Walkers, a quarter pony, an appy, and a Shetland. My personal favorite and friend for many years was a Tennessee Walker, but I have to admit that this Arab is pretty nice too.
     
  10. When I was going to college and taking photography, I used to go shoot a friend's Arabians. he had a whole herd of them! I wish I still had some of the photos, as his stallion was the prettiest I ever saw! Glad I haven't lost my touch on ID'ing horse breeds YET. She's a beauty for sure!

    Thanks, Steve. I wish however that I had framed it differently so that I could give Linda's suggestion a better test.
