For many years now I have taken a wintery looking horse photo down to the photo shop and had a card made for most of our friends - everyone has always commented on them and they are preferred way more than the shop bought kind.
I'm tempted to. My friend Deb took a spur-of-the-moment shot of us in cross ties the other day. I love the expression it captured on both of us. If I could afford it I'd definitely put it into a holiday card this year.
Occasionally. I think we used the current two in a group shot (including all four humans and the two dogs) 2 or maybe 3 years ago. Adorned with antlers. And over the years past horses made appearances. Actually, this year's card includes two horses, just not ours. Standing in front of rhinos in S. Africa.
Absolutely!! this year was just going to be the kids on one of the cows, but now that we have the new horse, DD is going to be on Mistletoe, and DS is going to be on Sweet Pepper, our Ayrshire riding cow
We use the Costco "photo center" for our Christmas cards- so easy to upload the photo- and always include our horses on them. Sometimes just our horses if DH and I aren't feeling particularly photogenic that year
I made cards one year from photos of my horses, with Santa hats on. Each one had a sarcastic Christmas statement inside. That was back when I could do alot of computer printing, and not break the bank on ink!
Absolutely! Last year it was horse, husband, and me. The photo shoot itself was a catastrophe - I had initially planned to be on horse, bareback, with me wearing Santa hat and horse wearing reindeer antlers that attach to his bridle. We had done a previous card a few years ago with the antlers with no problem. The minute I get on he decides he DOES NOT WANT the antlers, and flipped me right off his back, I only had a bit hanger on him and he ditched that and ran merrily away, naked. Took a while to catch him and I ended up spraining a ligament in my knee big time, it took months to heal and is still NQR. But we did get a photo which came out great.
