Connor Photoshoot

Since we didn't get to trail ride, Connor had a pretty boring overnight at his breeder's, stuck in a stall.  Before we left, his breeder asked if I wanted to chase him around with a bag and take pictures of him like we'd done with the babies all weekend.

Oh my gosh, yes, yes please!


I have admitted to myself lately that I am developing some serious barn blindness where this horse is concerned.  I get heart eyes every time I look at him, and my eye is drawn less to his conformation flaws as the only thing that flashes across my brain is "SO AMAZING!" every time I look at him.

I'm off to the right shaking a feed bag at him.  His ear never left me, which you can use to tell where I am in all of these photos.
He's just...amazing.  
Liftoff!



And majestic...most of the time:

Derp.

I did wonder if chasing him with a plastic bag in a new place was going to cause a hard-to-catch regression, but I shouldn't have worried.  He walked up to me when I dropped the bag and showed him I wasn't holding it anymore.

Peanut gallery watching in the background.
I mean, I can't say he didn't think about it as I reached up to grab his halter, but he did stand still.



Heart eyes.  Seriously.  This horse has my heart, and we are so lucky to be together.

    1. Haha, I think it's pretty important to be able to keep a level of objectivity toward your horse. I am struggling with that for the first time in my life lately. He's just my soul mate.

    1. Me too, he was definitely suspicious. Younger Connor would have been out of there. He's turned over a new leaf lately though.
