Profiled

For the past five years, this picture has been a part of my Blogspot profile.
It's a good photo, but it's really old--like twenty years old.  As much as I would like to pretend otherwise, I do not look like this anymore.  

With that in mind, Ryan and I headed out to the barn today for a profile picture photo shoot.  My goal was to recreate the old pose, with Rev's head over my shoulder and my hand on his nose. 

That was easier said than done.
Seriously, horse.  This shouldn't be so difficult.
After several dozen failed takes, I got aggravated and tossed the leadrope to Ryan. 
Naturally, the best picture of the day did not include me!
Still, this one's not so bad.
Thanks to Ryan for all his hard work, and also to Teresa Buzzell for creating the fancy new blog header.  With your help, this old blog is looking brand new!

  9. The second Rev picture ~ OMG! It's like he's saying "seriously human" to you, at the same time you're saying "seriously horse" to him!!! Too cute!

    But Seriously! The new profile photo turned out great!!

  11. I love your new picture because it looks just like you and your sunny smile. :-) Rev looks pretty cute, too. Nice work by Ryan, as I assume he was operating the camera at the time!

    My photo is old, too, but I'll never change it because a) you can't see my face anyway and b) it was a pinnacle moment in my riding career. One that I REALLY need to go over and blog about, in fact!

  12. Sometimes I enjoy the "trying to get a pose" pictures more than the "perfect" ones. Animals are so much fun! Very nice pictures, all of them!
