horsing around 2016: it’s what we do

December 30, 2015

it wouldn’t be right to close out the old year and ring in the new

without sharing our horse antics here with you

in the form of our family calendar for 2016–

horsing around:  it’s what we do!

so, (with apologies to those of you who follow my photo accounts

and have already seen these),

i present the highest of the highlights

of the past year with our herd:

the hardest part is always deciding just what makes the cut and what doesn’t–

there are plenty of photos to make this a daily planner!

as always, the herd came through in providing us with a nice blend

of beauty and hilarity.

while i strive for balance amongst herd members,

being the primary photographer and layout designer

i occasionally throw a little more work towards

miss photogenic.

i’ll leave you to figure out who that might be!

and so, despite some technological challenges that helped me

make a couple of new friends at apple support at the zero hour,

i am happy to say that the calendars were finished on time!


i had so much fun doing it that there are a couple more in the wings…

like this one:

happy new year!!!!

    Looks like there’s plenty of horsing around on the farm! Your photos are beautiful and Miss Photogenic is a beauty herself. I can see why she gets the spotlight!
    Happy Holidays to you and everyone on the farm!

      it’s always a challenge to select from the hundreds (literally) of photos that we take over any given year! some are absolutes from the start, while others grow on me as i start to format the pages. rose has a way of getting the camera turned on her with great frequency!
      i hope your holidays were wonderful and that this promising new year brings many great things your way. i’m thinking of one in particular…

    January!!!! The horses peering down at all the pups!
    Every giant horse curled up on the ground…nap time…with blankets. Too precious.
    Every month brings something endearing.
    What would we do without the farm love!?
    Happy New Year to my Colorado family. 🙂

      it’s actually very helpful to have a reason to sift through the archives at the end of each year. so much happens so quickly that it’s easy to forget all the details, and this makes me stop and reflect along with the editing. inevitably i get caught up in the other events of the year as well, so it’s not a quick process!
      happy new year to you two– hope this is a banner year for your and the wild ones!!

    How wonderful to see such warmth, grace and caring for our creatures. Now that is what we are put here on earth for.

      this is one of the nicest comments that has ever been left on this blog, and I thank you! we do love our many creatures, something we consider to be a major purpose in our lives. I’m so glad you read this, and it’s a bit of inspiration to get back to posting more often!
