Great photos. I can’t wait to see the winners.
I love the 1st photo and the one of the mare and foal. I wish I had been able to get a cute shot of my Arabian horse and her best friend Dutton, the Dutch Warmblood.
Please make a calendar out of these photos, I would definitely buy it.
They are fabulous
I loved all the pictures. The one of the pony and man leaning into the SUV is priceless. Couldn’t help but laugh.
Sweet! my photo is an honorable mention! Can’t help but love my mare and babe! Congrats to everyone!
Very cute- I love the pony in the car shot.
Love the pics they are great!
Ican’t imagine what the winning photo looked like these are soooo wonderful. Love all of them!
