Great horse'n around Dolores. He's got Mr. Ed beat, hands down. Good photograph DN. Great color and contrast.

Good horse shot, Dolores. I love his expression. His personality really comes through in this photo.

Wonderful portrait Dolores! Fred's personality shines through - great expression! I also like the angle you shot it at, with all that blue sky for the background!

Egads!! I just have time to turn around and what do I catch you all doing?

Being SO NICE!!

Hi Bernard!! Yep, meet Mr. Ed's son! (before he was gelded, of course!) It's a privilege receiving one of your comments, Bernard! thanks so very much!!

Ah...my Mainiac friend...Kathleen!...
Much appreciated comment!! Oh, you need to see their color with your own eyes..cameras cannot do justice. I'm going to try shooting them again...maybe this summer.

Hello Pat!! I find it high priase that you feel his personality is recorded here...getting the personality is the tough part. Many thanks and Happy Hanukkah!

Cathy...thank you so much for taking time to comment! As I said to Pat, the personality part is high praise! I was delighted the skies were blue that day...otherwise, the pic would be weak in color. I said I wish Fred was mine...but that was if I could afford to hire someone for all the maintenance he requires!! I want the irresponsible part...just ride him and be with him...let someone else do the shoveling. Many thanks, Cathy!

And again to everyone for being so kind!

Fred looks very friendly. I don't think he minded at all that you took his photo, Dolores. And what a photo! Very nice. Makes me smile.

Hi Patricia! Nope...didn't find in the least! Maybe he's used to it! He's shown in all the Ct Ag fairs so perhaps he's used to cameras. My shutter "sound" thingy is always off so maybe that helped too. I know winders and shutter sounds can spook horses....I've heard. (I don't know if that's correct or if I'm watching too many movies!) Was great to see you smile!

Nice work, Delores. I really like the low angle that you used. The blue sky really sets off the portrait. Fred is looking good!

Greetings Murry! Thanks so much!! Not only was I aiming for a blue background but was trying to eliminate the ugly bare branches that kept straying into my frame. Fred must have wondered what I was doing down there! Many thanks for your complimentary note!!
