In which we celebrate Santa and Sunshine and DRAGONOSITY!
After a month (it seemed like more) of dismal rain,
Photos with Santa Day dawned with fog followed by sunshine!
|Beautiful light over my family|
And after we got all dressed up in antlers and stuff, it was time to goof around a bit. Monica held on tightly to her camera and kept on shooting.
Fiddle saw Hana showing off in the arena,
and then it was Flower's turn.
|"She's clean! Take a picture!"|
Finally! Fiddle time!
|"Let Loose the DRAGON!"|
No, cantering isn't her best thing.
But it's still impressive.
She was determined to show those domesticated horses
|That tail-flagging thing? She can do that.|
how a DRAGON
|But of course, the Dragon's glory is in her SUPERTROT|
(aka the Big Thang)
moves out at speed.
We got her to stop and pose for a conformation shot. Remember how, in an earlier post, I said that when she's standing still, her bum is higher than her withers?
|"I'm not tired. I'm posing."|
Here at last is photo proof: When she moves
|Firebreathing is NOT optional.|
the booster rockets in her butt push her front end skyward.
NOW, conformation experts: we have some decent pictures. Please evaluate the Dragon!
Extra points for inclusion of the following words
Smoke. Fire. Danger. Caution. Explosion. Bonecrushing.
And, of course: Beautiful.
