Let me introduce you to Miranda and her three horsekateers, mustangs to be exact. Yes, each of these horses were once wild and roaming the countryside of Oregon or Nevada with their own herds and they have the BLM freeze brand on their necks to prove it.
Miranda has an amazing bond with all of her horses, but True Grit, aka Rooster, is her true heart horse. He is the golden boy who performs dressage, jumps, and of course can be ridden bareback or western. And who doesn't love any horse that's named after John Wayne. ;-)
I'm excited to show you my favorites from our golden horse equine session this week. But first, all the names! In the photo above from on the left is Elizabeth, aka Lizzy, she's the only mare in the bunch and is a sassy girl. In the middle is Rooster. And on the right is the newer addition to the family, Mr. Big, who is very big and easy going, and not to mention a gorgeous red roan with a Roman nose. The trust and partnership these four have is just amazing and it shows in all the photos!
The weather was amazing and the horses and Miranda were beautiful against the backdrop of shimmering leaves on this early autumn day. Take a scroll through the magic I was delighted to capture of these mustangs and their mom. We even got to end the evening with a little canter in a field with a flowing dress!
Have you ever owned or worked with a mustang? Did you fall in love with the three horsekateers? Please leave a comment below and tell me, I'd love to hear about it!
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
