Photos...as Promised!

243 digital photos later...



Lunging in the big arena

Darling went just a little crazy with my camera. The batteries on her camera died just as she pulled it out for a video. Creative as always, she decided to snatch up mine and shoot 30 frames per minute as I was leading Sandy across the property, thinking she'd piece it all together into one video. Heh...Good luck with that, Darling!




Lifting feet over poles


Lunging in round pen


Jay was taking Sunday off. The plan was to climb back on today (Monday), but as it turned out he ended up with four extra horses to trim. Can't turn good money like that down! So Sandy had two days off from riding. We did spend some more time on ground work, though. Looking at the photos, I can see we really need to work on him walking at our sides rather than lagging behind. That's the beauty of photographs...you can see things more clearly. The ugly side of that is you can see things you don't want to see more clearly (like the way you look in that particular pair of jeans!)


A nice walk


Left hind is the hardest!



Usually snorty with most people, Sandy seems to think Darling is okay!

don't worry about the way you look in those jeans, no one is noticing but you. We are busy looking at Sandy and what he's up to. lol

Love the pics. He is looking so good! What jeans?

Yay for photos! Thanks Darlin'.

Yep, what MiKael said *grin*. Anyway there's nothing wrong with those jeans or the person in 'em, what you talking about? Silly girl!

Sandy is getting quite gorgeous, he's a different horse. Hope the next rides go well! It's great you have Jay to help you out giving support from the ground.

Oh, dahlings....do you think I'd post the ones that showed the real me in those jeans??? How many photos did I tell you she took? Some made Sandy look better...but being the vain thing I am I searched for the better ones of me :)

Looks like Sandy is progressing very well! Such a pretty bay....

I think Sandy likes Darling, because she's wearing the Sandy Shirt. "Oh, she's got my face on her chest, so she must be ok!"

He looks like he is leading really well from these photos. Thanks for the pictures!

Great photos! Sandy is coming along so nicely.

I am glad that my competition is finally over, now I just get to sit back and watch all you mustang states challengers get ready for your competition!

LOL, Katee, I think you're right!
