Limited times available so call soon!
I feel bad for all the people in Kansas City that were negatively affected by all of the snow that we had in Feb. But here on the farm it was a lot of fun. The first snow dropped about 14″ on us. It was just beautiful and not to cold. It was the perfect snow to ride a horse in. Not too slippery and deep enough that it was too much work for the horse to act up – a good thing for my horses who had not been ridden much the last few months and were feeling spirited.
Because January and February are slow times for the studio I had time to take long walks with my dogs ride my horses and take some images just for myself. Below are a few of the images – Some of these were taken with my iPhone and some were taken with my Nikon D3.
