big and beautiful








when i first move to the farm or maybe even when i first came to visit the farm i went by the most glorious horses i had ever seen. for weeks after i moved in i would walk pass them hoping that i could speak to the owners and ask all about them. sometimes while driving at four am i would see these giant white beast coming out of the dark forest and just dream of walking along side of them. finally one afternoon while driving i slowed down when i saw a fox among them, yes, just sitting there in the middle of all them, i turned around and tried to get the shot but mr. fox had another idea.. he ran.

well the owners noticed me and came out and just like that they let me walk among them. I can not tell you how incredible it is to walk among horse that a so big and beautiful as these percheron. they welcomed me with nudges and before you knew it i was hanging all over them. my camera was in the car but it was not time. the other day i went for a walk to pick up acorn tops along the side of the road with my camera in tow, the owners who upon viewing my portfolio asked if i could take some photographs of their horses. like a dream i thought! these shots are just casual shots upon my walk the other day but i can not wait to get in there again with my camera and do them justice!!!

i would have been so scared to walk among them...though i know they are probably gentle, the size of horses makes me nervous

gorgeous photos.
these horses remind me of Cavalia - my daughter and i went just this past Tuesday. At several points in the show there are about 6 -8 horses on stage by themselves frolicking with a freedom that you would see in the wild. It's magnificent to watch.

what an idyllic life you lead. the idea of living in the country is so foreign to me, but such a dream. i wonder what it takes to get there ?

They are beautiful! Just imagine - they could be unicorns!! You saw a fox? How exciting!! I saw one last fall in our neighbourhood. They are so fast - just run away. I did not have my camera, but even if I did, it would have gone.

How wonderful to walk among those horses. They look surreal!
