Taking Care of the Lawn

Visiting my dad at my sister’s place was a bit of an experience. I hadn’t been close to a horse since I was five or six years old.  Now there’s a whole “herd” of them living on the property she shares with her cousin. It was very strange being awakened by the sound of up to seven  horses galloping across the property in the morning. I’m not that much of a city boy, but it was something brand new to me. The morning after I arrived at my sister’s place, I decided to go see how cooperative these horses would be to me taking some photos.. the answer was “not very cooperative” unless I was a fair distance away. Oh, well. Still managed to get some good shots of them in spite of their diva personalities.





The hilarious thing about these photos is that they’re being taken in the “front yard.” That shows how rural this place is. One thing for sure, you might be star struck when you first see these beauties.. but you’d still better watch your step.

  1. Wow! Looks like a wonderful place to get away from it all! It’s funny, a few days ago I was thinking about taking some pictures of horses. You’ve inspired me to have a go, just need to find the time!
    Man, that IS a a BIG front yard!

    1. LOL Steve! When you’re in a place that removed from the city, you have NOTHING but time! And yes, it’s a huge front yard! I know I’d rather have horses keep it in check than have to cut it with a push-mower. 🙂 Thanks!
