Challenge #2 - a picture of your horse

A picture of your horse, yeah right.  Here are several.  How can you post just one?
I do try to put some of my favorites in her photo album
For those of you who have read this blog and wondered why on earth I took on this project in the first place.... here are some of my first impressions of Nina.

It took quite a while to get her loosened up a bit.  She was gimpy and stiff as a board.  Her spine was so rigid is might as well have been fused.  And she still could move like this:

And she has always had a kind, intelligent eye.  The picture with the green halter is the day I picked her up and the one with the pink halter (which I have apologized to her about ever since) was about a month later.  

This shot was taken just a few minutes after unloading her the day I got her.  She was lame, skinny and wary, but she still had a sort of regal presence.  I saw it the first day I went to look at her and it was what drew me back for a second look. 


  1. I see what you mean; her regal beauty is obvious, even in her skinny pictures. She's a pretty girl. And she looks good in pink.

  2. She does have a regal bearing...even in pink. ;)

  3. I totally love the pink, sorry:) That mare could make any color look good though. What a beauty!
