Such massive animals, but so gentle and curious!
Working on several horse-themed books and making the most of the good weather to enjoy my own horses, I find I am never bored! This is a good thing, I suppose, as the long grind of writing a book (and training an horse) could drive a person crazy.
To build my stock of equine photos (to be used in various upcoming articles and books), I've been spending lots of time at barns, horse shows, and race tracks - always with a camera close to hand. And speaking of hands, the one in this photo belongs to our friend Julia who came to visit us a couple of weeks ago.
