Caught in a Headshake

Going to the Doc ColtColt by Going To The Doc, a buckskin AQHA Calf Roping Champion. This is the most recent foal. Only one more due this season. Be watching in late June.

Every now and then you need to try something different. This self portrait with foal was taken from a hand held camera at nearly ground level.

Rainbow over yearlings. The rainbow base is on my two favorite yearlings

New Mare in the Pasture

This past Thursday a new mare was introduced to the broodmare pasture. This foal tries to introduce herself but is told "leave me alone kid."

Blue Roan mare has sort of adopted the youngsters in the pasture and tries to be protective. She blocks off the foal and tells the new mare to stay away.
She then escorts her charges away from the interloper

Blue roan watches to see that New Mare keeps her distance.
