Fall Photo Shoot

One evening this week I went out to the barn just to hang out with Kachina, no plans of riding. Kachina and her buddy K were at the far end of the pasture and I hiked out to see them, pockets filled with treats and apples from a fellow boarder's backyard tree.

Kachina was supremely suspicious of the apples. She ate a few bites after I demonstrated for her, but she made it clear that she prefers the pellets.

The pasture grasses are turning red and golden, and the sunset light was just perfect, so I decided to do a little impromptu photo shoot.

It's a very big pasture, I'm lucky that Kachina will walk towards me when she sees me

This is what a soft calm blue eye looks like

Her nose is turning from pink to white - a sure sign that fall is here

Kachina felt the need to take a break from being so photogenic :-P


Coming to investigate me to see if I had any more treats

K, Kachina's pasture buddy, is such a stately, beautiful mare

I like the tail mid swish

Looking at the sun and dry ground in these photos is bittersweet, it's snowing outside my window right now!


  1. So beautiful. You can keep that snow down there though!

    1. Enjoy your absence of snow, you know it's only a matter of time... at least we didn't get hit as hard as Saskatchewan.

    1. Thanks. You can probably relate with how pinto horses don't always look clean or attractive out in pasture, so you have to take photos when they do! lol
