Zim (and a little bit of Gem)

All cell phone shots.
Standing in his paddock area at the front of the barn.

Coming in from the field one afternoon to see if it's feeding time.
 Gem following closely behind.


Standing in his paddock stall at the rear of the barn early one morning, waiting to be fed.
And another morning, casting a shadow on the inside barn wall from the rising sun.

All lovely, but from inside the barn, super. Looks warm down there, a good place to be and avoid that polar freeze that's coming. Jean.

Really beautiful animals! I always wanted a horse when I was a kid, but my dad wouldn't get one for me. He had too many bad memories of the horses used in field work.

Zim is so beautiful! Both horses must be a delight.

thirtysevenandcounting said...

They are beauties! I particularly like image 6, as well as the very last. The wood grain seen in the shadow seems to follow Zim's shape in the hind quarters. Great capture!

Lindy

P.S. Have you ever done drawings of your horses, like you do the birds?

Gemma Wiseman said...

These two characters look so beautiful together. Like best buddies. And they live in such a pretty world.

The Queen Jester said...

Funny how all animals will come running if it's time to eat. I guess we tend to do that also, so we're not much different. Beautiful horses.

Zim looks just like my Missy-I had her when I was a teenager many, many years ago. Same markings i=on her head too. Just about a dead-ringer, as they say! Lucky you. I miss my Missy.

Paul said...

Thank goodness for cell phone caneras, a person wouldn't get half the spur of the moment pictures without one. Nice pictures of Zim and Gem!

You've got horses! They are such beautiful creatures... It has been too long, and these days I feel I am too heavy, to go horseback riding :(
Love the silhouette shot in his paddock stall, so perked and attentive.

I love seeing photos of your horses! And these are great shots. Love the wind whipping their manes. You have a pretty barn, too.

I love horses. Some background: I begged for a horse when I was a child, but never got one. So I pretended my bike was a horse. :-)

pattisjarrett said...

Aw, I love seeing them. The sun must have felt good that morning when the shadow reflected on the door.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I love the first one, that's the sasmer view from skywatch, with geautiful Gem now the focal point instead of the sky. They approach meal time just like my dogs, full throttle.

SweetMarie said...

I LOVE these pics! Your two horses are such beauties! You have such beauty surrounding you with your all your fur babies. :)
