Unwilling Subject

The light in my garden was exquisite just now, I grabbed my camera and child to go do an impromptu fun thing and she rebelled.... I have often preached, just go with it anyway to the parents of an unwilling child, and done so myself with my own and have come out with the best images ever, ones that I could have never gotten posed.

Well, as luck would have it, I got all of 30 seconds before she flipped out and ran off, but.... I got a stroke of luck in those seconds I think... One split second of complacency before the storm, enjoy....

Hello World!

Last night was the night. I got the call that the long awaited foaling was eminent. As luck would have it, my daughter was allowed to come along.

Hours ticked by, and the suspense grew, then finally, just about midnight the foaling monitor showed what we were waiting for. We crept out to the barn as the mare delivered. What a great Momma, I was snapping away while Mom and baby did their thing and Emily came into the stall to tell me (quite alarmed) that the "white" mare down the isle was laying down.... "white" mare was 38 days overdue, and the vet had been out this evening and said by next Tuesday probably. Someone went to check and we hear "she's FOALING!" So off to photograph number two for the night, a short half hour from the first. Awesome! You can't ask for more than that.

Both were healthy chestnut colts with stars and stripes, and white socks on a front leg! Sweet. almost twin-ish, and the Momma's are best friends, ok, as well as horses can be that is....

Mom's and babies were doing fine as we headed home. I hope to go back out in a couple of days to see them and take more images. Thanks Mary for letting me be a part of this! Stay tuned!
