As most folks know, who follow my blog, I live in a rural region of south-central Ontario. On over-cast days, when time permits I enjoy driving around the ‘neighborhood’ in search of various farming-type images, particularly cattle and horses. Images of cattle and horses often look more pleasing in the even light of an over-cast day. I have a large collection of un-edited horse photos to optimize. Since it has been raining most of this weekend I chose to process a few horse images to share with you on this day. Horse often make me think of the Old West, when folks didn’t depend on gasoline to travel, and they remind me of old Clint Eastwood movies too Hope you enjoy this collection of recently processed horse photos.

Getting caught up on processing some image files that I have not had the time to process until now. Last autumn, neighbors of mine asked me if I would be able to photograph some of their horses – here is a small sample of the results. I am hoping to capture them this winter in a gentle snowfall also. Whenever I see horses in my travels I always stop to grab a few shots of them. They are such beautiful and graceful animals. They remind me of a time when gasoline was not required to travel great distances. They also remind me of a saying I once heard – diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but only if she can trade them for a good horse.
When I was photographing the horses I could not resist getting a few shots of my neighbors 10 month old English Bulldog too. You can see his image at the bottom of this post. The reddish horse’s name is Scarlet and the darker horse is named Muffin.
You gotta love that face. What a cutie eh!
