Fine Art Images from the American Southwest

Horses, Favorite Photos This Week. 04-05-2023

Greetings from the San Cristobal, NM. This week some of my favorite images of horses.

It was fun to revisit the extensive folder of horse photos dating back to the first shot below, which I made on a 6-megapixel Canon Rebel in 2005.

I hope you enjoy the following gallery of horse pictures as much as I do.

As it is spring, why not include a couple of images of foals. This mare and her foal were on the road to Chaco Canyon.

Shots like the next two, fascinate me. I have quite a collection of this type of image.

I titled this image, “Old Blue Eye”. He had one blue eye. He made the cover of a local visitors guide, magazine.

The guy smelled bad but his friend was classy looking. Too much time on his hooves roaming in the wild.

Dreadlocks and his fancy friend.

This sweet mare stood motionless in the snow storm only blinking occassionally at a snowflake.

These three came running as fast as you can say apple. My friend always carried apples for the horses should we find them out there.

The Ranchos Valley has some high vantage points. There are many fields with horses to photograph.

This image was taken on a photo workshop in the San Luis Valley. I usually post it in black and white.

My friend Dwain, who passed too soon was happy around horses, dogs, and kids. He was a hiker, camper, fisherman, and a fabulous sculptor.

I posted the photo below on Facebook. It found a few homes with collectors. Click here if you are interested in a print.

Some fun facts about horses on Wikipedia.

I want to thank everyone for all the well wishes. I’m out of my big restrictive boot and into a comfortable pair of “Hoka” walking shoes. I had no idea how comfortable these shoes were. Lucky me.

As always thank you for looking. Have a good week. G
