It has been a cool and wet spring here and I have not spent much time photographing the lovely creatures in my own back yard, but since yesterday was the Solstice it was once again time for the EPNet Photo Project, I spent some time following my guys around. It wasn't the best day for photographing in between black clouds and showers but I did manage to get a few nice shots and it's always a pleasure spending time with this part of the family. Bellita has fit right in to the herd but I think my mare Juno was feeling a little neglected. At one point I was sitting on a log and she came and stood over me and managed to get her nose in front of my lens each time I tried to take a photo. You can see an album of photos that I took yesterday here, if you have a minute let me know if you have a favorite!

Earlier this month I photographed the North Central Pennsylvania Arabian Horse Show in Hughesville, Pennsylvania. Other than a downpour on the first day we were blessed with beautiful spring weather. This is an event I have been shooting since the 1980's and it is always a pleasure to attend and photograph. Go to this link to view more favorites from this show. Enjoy!

Yesterday we picked up Bellita and brought her home. She is a beauty, and so sweet and wise. These Lipizzans really grow on you with their wonderful dispositions and regal, classic bearing. Now my herd is perfectly symmetrical with 4 bays and four grays! She is a half sister to my other Lipizzan mare, Bella.
Here are a few photos I got upon her arrival, I am looking forward to taking many more!
