Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

Ride with your heart and soul ~ your horse can feel it

Sunday Stills

This week's Sunday Stills challenge was difficult yet easy. Family & friends are what makes me happy... but how to do this without some wondering why they weren't chosen and yet not have too many pictures? Well my solution was to post my immediate family, which is my husband (aka "Pie") and our "children" (dogs, cats, horses).

This is one of my favourite photos of Pie. It was taken during one of his riding lessons (on a very cold day). He and Applejack were just getting to know each other:

Next in our little family are the dogs. Comet is a black lab cross (the SPCA said the cross is Border Collie but we're not sure as he is a BIG dog). Misty is a Golden Retriever x Rottie.
Something about the light being nice to Comet washes out Misty so I had to give her a pic of her own so you can see how pretty she really is:

Next up are the kitties. Lola is a Ragdoll and Chloe is a Siamese. Chloe is also boss of the whole house. Its pretty funny to see this little cat walk up and just give the dogs "The Look". Next thing you know they will vacate whatever comfy spot they were in and Chloe takes over their spot.
I have a hard time capturing their gorgeous blue eyes without that darn red eye, hence the nap time shot:

This is MY baby. My sweetie, my 28 yr old TB mare - Cessa:

This is "Pie's Horse" (in quotes because I do 99% of the riding, taking care of, etc) Applejack:

And finally the newest member of the family, my new gelding Voodoo:

I'm a pretty basic girl. My husband, my critters, my friends and family. That's what makes me happy.
All pictures in this post were taken with my point & shoot cameras, either the Kodak Z710 or Nikon S210.
