I love this about her; daddy certainly produces type and substance. I prefer Arabs that are more substantive and it seems he is living up to that preference..

Thank you!!

You flatter me Sir .. but yes, I did pro photography once upon a time, though then- it was all manual SLR's which I prefer, and did mostly landscapes and portraiture. Moving subjects such a horses and foals are a bit more of a challenge. DSLR's have taken some getting used to. I really need a longer focal length lens to get the quality I want, but the standard lens I have is doing ok.. What I want costs some bucks.. but will be getting one soon.

If you are serious, I would be very reasonable- I'd hate to charge anything if it helps you/your business, as well as mine, but it is time-intensive. We could even trade some horse-related services. Unwavering patience with horses and the ruthless selection/rejection process of thousands of photos is the key to quality pics.

I don't need first class.. coach is fine; you will find me the antithesis of pretentious. We could even trade some horse-related services. Definitely worth discussion; I've never been to Texas- could be great fun- and I'd love to meet you!

Druydess I think I can take you up on that offer.
I need to infuse some crabbet bloodlines into my program.
I am going to have a very busy schedule this summer but we can plan our visit for the fall. You live in Florida I know but that is nothing compared to a Texas summer. That I can assure you.
Plus my daughter might be out of my apartment in Dallas for a couple of months in the fall you can live it up in a real dallas highrise. The view at night is worth the trip alone. You would have the place to yourself. Shalom

I had a very strong feeling we'd be doing business at some point..
Sounds like we have an adventure in the works!

We just clipped Psynny's head and neck yesterday, and OMG-- he's typier than when he was younger!! And what a neck! He's definitely advancing to be the stunning colt I thought he would be, so you have a great Crabbet candidate there. He's pretty high Crabbet %; I will be submitting a request to the Crabbet Society for a Certified % soon. He also will offer size, type, straight legs, balance, neck for miles, great hip, flash, and one the most laidback temperaments I have ever seen, which with my horses, is saying a lot.

The fall is actually a perfect time. It'll give me time to get that lens and it's a better time to shoot horses. After the first few weeks to a month, babies get all milk-fatty and they come across as thick-necked and stocky with fluffy baby fur not helping. 5-6 months to a year is generally a good time for photo shoots for babies as they refine a bit and shed out. I have a commitment to officiate at a wedding early Nov. And a week-long camping retreat mid Oct. We can work around that.

Summer here is quite hot as well-- it's like breathing heated water..LOL

It's very generous to offer your apt. I get along fine anywhere. Your farm and old house sounds equally appealing. I guess you'll have to educate me as to the highlights of Texas life.

We'll work it all out as things move along; we'll have lots to talk about..LOL

The Farmhouse is now currently without electricity or running water.
It was built in 1850's when it was a cotton plantation.
The wiring and lumbing were installed in the 1930's and the 1960's respectively.
Updating and rewiring yet still keeping the house as historic as possible is taking longer and more expensive than we estimated. It will take almost a year after finding more and more things that need to be addressed. That's what the contractor says. He specializes in" historic properties."
I have relocated to a smaller place closer to dallas with only 30 acres and only 14 horses that I purchased as a rental property years ago.
I will be at a conference in Atlanta in Oct. I might be able to swing by if my schedule allows. Shalom
