There is a first for everything. My first horse portrait was with lucky Patrick. Well it was lucky me actually. I’ve seen horses being ridden in Golden Gate Park, policeman riding their horses, horses on TV… but what an opportunity to be up close and personal with this beautiful horse.
Horses need a lot of love and care. I was watching Heather tend to Patrick… brushing his hair, conversing, giving him exercise, affirming him, and last but not least, giving him treats such has hay and carrots. It was a lot of fun watching and learning during this portrait session. I forgot to mention that it was a whoppin’ 103 degrees that day… Hot!!!
