The scenery in your photo's awes me, I would love to see it for real. Just gorgeous!
I have been skiing once, in the alpine region of Victoria, Australia. But even then it was maybe -3*C at the coldest, and they were having to spray man made snow onto the slopes to top them up.
Your beautiful, fluffy, deep snow is incredible

The snow is truly gorgeous, until it starts melting or gets frosted, or too slippery. Winter trail rides are nonetheless among my favourite riding activities, and Snickers loves that just as much as playing in the snow - he's always extra spunky and full of energy during the colder seasons.

We had the nice opportunity to get photographed by a professional photographer who strives to learn taking better equestrian shots. It could not be missed. :)

Who could imagine that he's actually NOT that innocent as he tries to look like in this portrait?!



The following two pictures were the process of trying to get them into movement and getting a beautiful shot. Snickers thought that he had better plans...





But then we did it!



Of course, Monsieur Snickque had to express his opinion on it:



Just being his awesome self with the others -

On to cutesy pictures with his owner!

At first, I just wanted to lay him down and sit by him:



Then I got inspired and did what I had not done before, feeling that this time he'd let me and trust me to be lying head-to-head with him on the ground -



Just another "he's so handsome to me!" shot:



Into the forest we go...



The black guard -



Posing, posing, posing...

Finally, just being together and resting after the vigorous posing -





Not a problem to lay down for me in the trails either...

Love them all, Saranda! The last one is certainly suitable for framing as a cherished keepsake. Simply breathtaking! :)

Thanks, Northenstar! That is actually a good idea, I might get a canvas print, frame it and hang it to a wall in my flat.

Ooh, those are fantastic! I LOVE the "black guard" pics and the last one should definitely be a wall hanger!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Sometimes we go on trail walks at liberty. This time, I had put on the halter at first, but I ended up just tying the rope around his neck and not using it. Sometimes we are both on one wave, sometimes Snickers says he's got better plans on his mind, but how could we otherwise know who leads whom, and then talk it over later?



When there are no ropes to hold on and nobody can be made to do anything, the true connection shows...



Will you come to me? The answer is not always positive, and then the conversation may go on - why so. How can we learn to understand each other better.



First, one crosses the creek...



I invite you, will you come to me?



...then the other. And crossing the creek is something that applies to everything we do together with someone. We cannot expect togetherness if we don't do the crossing together and if we don't wait for each other to do it when it really feels like it. When we are ready.

Please, don't mind the rubs on his face. Those are self inflicted by a new, large haynet and the issue is being addressed.

Here I am, Snickers, and am I not glorious? Am I not handsome? I am, of course. Don't be shy, it's the truth!



Alas, not everyone appreciates it... Yet again, my dinner is late! The MANNERS of some people!



I have been waiting for five...FIVE minutes already, and the Human has the cheek to say - it still has to cool off?!



Unacceptable! You hear me? UNACCEPTABLE! I will NOT tolerate it any longer!



It seems I have been left with no choice. I will have to use my Special Equine Mind Powers to gain access to the bucket... Oummm....



Oh, it worked! ..umm, I mean, OF COURSE, it worked! Here it comes, my wonderful bucket!



Bon apetit! At least, the Human knows how to get my mash juuuust right! No. I won't give any to you. Go away. And bring some treats on your way back. Merci.
