My Masters Saddle
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
My Masters Saddle, the Tool of his trade!
My Masters Saddle, the Tool of his trade!
~ANIMALS~ *Re-enterred into a different catagory for June 2012*
You left without a word so I wait by your saddle, patiently waiting.
But you've not come back and the daisies bloom once again covering where you lay still, so long ago.

"The Red River Valley" for John sung by my favourite too Slim Whitman.
Music will self destruct in 24 hours. Haven't had time to chat for a a few days.

I'm re-designing a website, put this image on the front page in a different
format of course so enterred it here too adding some daisies as a background.
I originally took the shot at a training trial, Steve brought
his old saddle along for a photo shoot of his dog as he is getting on.
"Snap" is, 12 years and was retired from competing last year,
one of the hightest scoring dogs in Oz. Beautiful worker.

We have a two day seminar coming up this weekend plus a day out tomorrow
training with the speaker so it will be such fun. Taking hundreds of photos,

sadly none for here as the lighting is horrid, not BP quality.

Have a great day. ~Pat and Graham

Big Sis, Pat, This is Beautiful, Deep and Sad. Takes us back the old cowboy days where men DID get shot off of their horses, etc., and their dogs sat waiting. I think horses were known to wait for their masters, too!

You did a Terrific Job with the Set Up Big Sis and so did your champion of a retired doggy, too!

-Little Sis xxxxxxx
(Sorry I have been so abscent. I have been doing projects off of BP)...

HOPE YOU ARE DOING WELL! :D

Wow, Pat and Graham - this image is SO lovely...and I can't believe I haven't already commented on it!! In fact, I thought I had!! ;o/

Anyway, I love how you pulled all the parts together, Pat...and the story and verse accompanying this beautiful creation is so apt, too!! :o)

Snap most certainly is a handsome doggie, and I'm sure Steve is absolutely 'wrapped' with this image!! B-I-G congrat's on your Finalist recognition, friends - IMHO I think it should've gone on to gold!! :o)
