October’s Equine Calendar

“A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves – strong, powerful, beautiful – and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence. ~ Pam Brown

September Desktop Calendar

September! Is it really here? I always meet it with a ting of sadness as Labor Day soon arrives marking the end of Summer, my favorite time of year. Summer never lasts long enough for those of us in the New England states. However, there is always much to look forward to with the change into Fall – crisp cool mornings, beautiful light, cooler temperatures, apple picking….. etc. The image above, “Evening Grazer,” is of one the wild horses in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and was taken in the beautiful September evening light of the Outer Banks. For the horses there, they too enjoy cooler temps, gentle breezes, a decrease in flies, and longer more succulent grasses. It is a beautiful time of year no matter where you are.

As always, please feel free to share this calendar and enjoy the the lingering of summer-like days that one cherishes like the first ones in each year.

July’s Equine Art Calendar Is Here

It is officially summer and bathing our equine friends in warm weather is enjoyed by both horse and handler. This month’s equine image was taken at The Vermont Summer Festival here in Vermont with today being it’s opening day. It is a wonderful 6-week horse show that delights not only the spectators and competitors, but the families of competitors as the area is host to great attractions, restaurants, shopping, and activities for all the non-horsey family members to do. As always, please feel free to share this post. If you are in the area, be sure to stop in and watch the show.

June’s Equine Art Calendar

June appeared to have snuck up on me. My apologies for the delay in posting this. This image, titled Mustang Pride, is of a rescued wild mustang that lives at an amazing sanctuary in California called Return to Freedom. They were early advocates to save this country’s wild mustang populations and now have one of the strongest voices for the cause. Now with the emergency water situations facing California, they could use your help in ensuring a continued water supply to their sanctuary. Clicking on this link will provide you with how you can help.

May’s Equine Art Calendar

The commanding stallion, Wavelength, from the wild horse population in the Outer Banks.

Happy May everyone! With it’s arrival we hope we have seen the last of our long winter and our thoughts can truly turn to enjoying more of the outdoors. This month’s image is of the formidable stallion, Wavelength, that lives on the Rachael Carson Reserve in the Outer Banks. Stunningly handsome, he clearly is the commanding stallion whose mere presence signals a wide berth be given by the other resident herds. Enjoy and please feel free to share.

April’s Equine Calandar

In celebration of Spring, this month’s image, of a wild born foal in the Outer Banks of North Carolina basking in the warmth of the sun, symbolizes all the many joys of Spring, none of which is more precious than a new life. This little filly will likely live its life as Mother Nature intended — wild and free to be. Happy Spring!

Enjoy and please share.

 

March Desktop Equine Calendar

Backscape, taken in the Vermont winter of 2009.

While March brings the promise of a close to a relentlessly cold winter, here in Vermont, it has been snowing all day long. The best we can hope for is “in like a lion, out like a lamb.” It is still beautiful to me and I am not yet tired of the abundance of snow and it’s frequent refresh but I think I am pretty much in the minority at this point. This month’s image is one of my very early images taken in my career as an equine photographer and one of the few from way back then that I still love. Hope you enjoy it as well and please feel free to share this calendar with a friend.

February’s Equine Calendar

Happy Monday from a blizzard-engulfed Vermont. This is the weather that those of us who live here year round love! We love it for the conditions it provides on the mountains, we love it for the quietness it gives the outdoors and we love it for the beauty it provides our eyes which in turns feeds our souls. I hope you enjoy it and the month that lies ahead.

June’s Desktop Calendar is here!

After a few technical know-how glitches, I think I’m back on track with the June’s desktop calendar. June’s image celebrates the new life that is born each year into the safe haven that the wild horses of the Outer Banks enjoy. It is ready to be downloaded onto your computer anytime you are ready. Enjoy!
