2013 Project 365

Project 365/331 – Playing in the Snow

I know..I know..I owe you a photo from yesterday. But sometimes life just seems to get in the way, and business needs to be taken care of first before play. Today a winter storm was to blow through, promising snow and then icy rain. Of course hearing the four letter word SNOW causes this photographer to jump for joy. As photo opportunities are abound.

There’s been a barn I’ve been driving by all year, that I’ve yet to stop and capture. It’s tucked back in the middle of a large field in some rolling hills. Off in the distance, the snow flakes filled the air.

Arriving to the barn, the snow was fresh. Only with hoofbeats and footprints in the path.

Of course, the boys were acting silly and playing around Toby (brown) was in fine form, tormenting his friend Bandit (white). After a one-on-one, tete-a-tete with Bandit, Toby decided to gallop around the paddock relentlessly harassing all the other boys.

Toby was really laughing hard about the whole thing.

Even rolling in the snow seemed like a good idea. Typical boys – you wouldn’t see a girl get this dirty.

While I was trying to capture Toby running around the paddock and getting his friends riled up, I kept feeling this nose rub against my camera hand. Rub, Rub, Rub..it was coming from below. Oh it’s you my little Macaroni pony.

It was fun playing with the horses in the snow. It won’t last long, so I’ll have to wait until the next snow storm to play once more.

  1. The B&W barn photograph is award winning – stunning of quality and a time-sake treasure, love it! The horses have personality plus – love seeing them playing freely, the laughing photo was hilarious, so much fun together and to watch! Great series Emily.

  2. That Toby sounds like a real character and he’s got a fine set of teeth too! Glad you’re having fun with your beautiful horses. Enjoy the snow. It hasn’t arrived here yet.
    By the way, how do you get that snow fall effect on your blog?

  3. Oh, how fun! The horses look so happy to be out in the snow! I have to laugh…we’re all slogging around here with this snow we’ve been getting the past couple of weeks – but if you talk to anyone who owns a dog, they’ll tell you that the dog is absolutely ELATED with the weather. Maybe we need to capture some of that excitement, too! πŸ™‚

    • Oh that is so funny ! I would love to see your dog playing in the snow too. They can do some silly things. When I open the door to let my cat out, he just hisses at the snow and turns back into the house. Really funny.
