Meet Chillie (the handsome little stud):
Here he's showing off his rearing skills. Wasn't really enjoying that strange contraption on his head (he's not halter broken).
This is Emms. She's my favorite non-niece niece. (if that makes sense). This little one is a trooper. She was diagnosed with leukemia at age 3. She's currently in remission. She handles her chemo with pep and attitude and a little bit more. (although I'm sure Shari will readily agree that it's been one very long, long road). Emms has a long road ahead of her - she's still on monthly chemo, but she's fighting it. She attended her first horse show this summer, and won a few ribbons. She has this way with horses, that is almost magical, and the way the horses love her? It's unbelievable. Not only is she a figher, but she is my hero.
And here's Rae (that oh so divinely elegant filly):
She's what Shari calls a "boring sorrel", but I have to admit - the way her coat gleamed in the sunlight today - there was nothing boring about her. She's got the longest neck (which she's not really showing here), legs that are as long as her Mom's already, and a topline (the line of her back), that is almost table top straight.
Here's Shari and Rae enjoying a relaxing moment. Poor Rae was also not used to the halter, and fought it pretty good - so a relaxing moment was needed. See that neck? It does get longer than that yet.
A wonderful shot of her legs - Shari says with legs like this - she will make a stunning driving horse, plus with her elegant looking face - she can be shown in halter classes as well.
Thanks for the great day Shari - and for letting me be your "official" horse photographer.
