Wensleydale Farms

It’s been awhile since there’s been a farm update around here! Things have been spinning almost out of control since the Open House at the end of July! It’s past time to start working on the next one but…… anyway….. On to what you came for : photos!

Checkers says ‘Good morning! Where’s my food?’

Let’s see since update there are two new cria! One is from Lexi (a personal favorite). Aren’t they cute?

Miss Lexi has a keen awareness of the camera and where she should be in order to be best positioned in the frame…. also, I think this is the first time she’s ever let me take a photo of the ‘non-beauty marked’ side of her face!

Rah is the oldest 2012 cria and he’s still doing wonderfully. Inquisitive but calm and a bit of an instigator, this guy might spell trouble! Gorgeous fiber color as well.

Darling Summer Breeze is the second oldest cria from 2012. She’s settling in nicely as the bold, fun loving girl.

Who does that leave?

Oh yeah! Greystones! Where is that little guy……

Ah… hiding behind his mother. Hopefully he’ll come out to play with the camera soon!



Want to keep in touch with the farm? Find them on facebook! Or their website! Farm shop will be opening between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and there are some great items that would fit perfectly under your Christmas tree!


Belle and Andrea


I had the wonderful opportunity to visit a good friend in September, take a ride at the barn where I rode in college and snap a few shots of Miss Belle and Andrea. Aren’t they sweet?



Love them! Belle is an older gal, but you’d never know it! What a face!



Yup, she rides bitless/English Hackamore — just like Des and I. I’m really enjoying a similar bridle with Des and I think Andrea enjoys how Belle handles in this one as well!


Andrea, thanks for letting me join you for a morning! Everyone else, don’t forget to show Belle and Andrea some love!

Fermi | Madison, WI Photographer

Ah, I love horses. Which is why I was¬†ecstatic when Fermi’s Mom asked me to take some portraits.

And isn’t that hat just adorable? What a pair!¬†

Yes, I’d say Miss Fermi has a pretty great post-racing life. Don’t forget to show Fermi and her mom some love in the comments!
