We got more snow! How weird is this?? I'm so not used to all of the ice and snow. :) Anyway the horses were being extremely uncooperative for a snowy photo op. All they wanted to do was stand by the gate staring at the feed shed longingly (from the hoof prints in the snow it looks like they did their playing while I was still sleeping hehe), so I had to bribe Chrome to follow me out in the pasture with some hay pellets, so I could get pictures with snow and not buildings in the background lol. I managed to get some pretty good ones. Not many action shots because the ground is frozen solid and I didn't want him trotting around on it.
Walking by my shoulder. I cut his ears and mohawk out of the frame because I couldn't see the screen. I was holding the camera out with my hand opposite him since he was so close to my side. If I had taken it normally all you would have seen is an eye or a cheek lol.
He lagged behind and then trotted to catch up and I managed to get this one. I like how it turned out. Too bad there is a donkey plastered to his windshield... err I mean his nose hehe!
But every time I would crouch down to get a picture he would come back to see what I was doing! Makes taking pictures very difficult Chrome!!
I zoomed out a bit to show the pretty snowy trees. :)
I LOVE this one, although the quality sucks from the upload.. don't understand what happened.. in fact this one is my new desktop background on my computer and it looks amazing. :D He's not that butt high by the way. He's standing on a slope.
Finally! Got some distance between us and snagged this one. I LOVE it!
Then he was right by my side again so I crouched down and got some shots from different angles.
Walking back toward me. Chrome was watching Jackal off to the left of the picture.
My boys. The reason Chrome's ears are pinned....
... is because hubby was playing with Chrome's lips. :)
And he found grass under the snow hehe. Happy pony!
I got a couple of pictures of him cantering and trotting in the yard (the ground is flat and softer in the yard), but they turned out horribly blurry so I didn't post them. He was feeling spunky, but I made him settle down and graze a while before putting him back in the pasture. :)
Anyway I hope you like the pictures. Chrome was very uncooperative, but very handsome so it all worked out. :D I'm going to try to figure out what's wrong with Faran's pictures so I can post them tomorrow. Later!
