Empire, one of Darling's two new yearlings for the YAY program, has the most incredible eyelashes ever. Photographing them was not easy, however, as she did not want to stand still. It was either run to the other side of the paddock to show off for the boys (they learn early, these wild girls!), or come stand on my toes, pushing her face right up into the camera and fogging the lens.
Of course...I had to include my own eyes...no, no, I didn't alter my middle aged skin in photoshop...why would you think that? (Whistles as she moves on to the next photo...)
Last year I took on a total of five TIP horses. That would stand for Trainer Incentive Program; I receive grant money if I can find homes for mustangs while they're here being gentled. One of those horses was a stout gelding who's called Cheveyo. Naturally, all us horse owners who hold cameras in our hands simply must use them to capture pony eyes, and you know I'm a sucker for
wasting time spending dedicated hours learning new skills on photoshop. Veyo was my victim here.
Now if you'll excuse me, the sun is shining and I'm going to hit the trail nice and early before heading out for our mustang meeting. Hope y'all have a beautiful Sunday!
