I took these pics yesterday afternoon. The wind was really blowing. The ranch just built this new larger round pen at the request of some of the folks who own larger horses. The smaller round pens do not really give the larger horse room to move out.
The trainer I have working with Candi was in the Round pen with her which was great for me because I finally had the chance to photograph her moving out.
It was interesting. I did not catch any of her bucks but they are pretty good ones I was bummed! The funny part was when the neighboring ranch's cows busted through the fence and were scattered all over! At that point Candi was done working but due to the "cow Excitement" we left her in the round pen for a few. Needless to say when I finally got her back to the barn, she was soaked and the temp was dropping rapidly. About 15 minutes after getting her in the barn is was snowing snowing snowing! It took an hour and 1/2 to dry her off and cool her out!
Well here are the pics. Sorry for the "grainy" appearence...a result from blowing sand and dirt. Winds of at least 60 mph.
The very last picture is of my gelding Ty...neither of my horses has ever seen snow!
