Horse ’n’ Hound

Threshold WORK-IN-PROGRESS detail:

Got to work on this one for about an hour today after my other work. Having fun defining the tree branches by painting in the negative spaces.

Well, I certainly can’t complain about a day that begins with a little squirrel watching, and ends with a walk in the pasture with the horses:

 Matilda, our smallest, with Roadie, our largest. You should see them wrestle. It’s hilarious.

 Andy, sporting a coat well-suited to these chilly mornings.

Long-legged Blue, backlit by the morning sun. 
Not the sharpest knife in our drawer, but sweet and handsome as all get-out. 

Sophie, trying to decide if the squirrel action out in the yard 
is worth getting off the back porch for. 

I guess she decided it was worth it after all.

* insert approximately eight hours of daily activities here *

And now, a lovely late afternoon stroll in the pasture:

When I showed Paul this one, he said, “How did you get them to pose like that?” 
He was kidding of course. I think. 
I hope he was kidding.

On the left is a horse who has already made the discovery that I have no snacks on me.
On the right is a horse who has yet to experience that disappointment.

 Hasta mañana, amigos!

It would be lovely if you painted the three horses.
