Love your picture! I've hundreds of a similar nature. It seems he is more interested in the cookie I'm holding or may be holding or he's hoping I'm holding then standing there for a picture. I finally had to get a helper to feed cookies while I snapped pictures from a distance. Here are some of the ones that actually came out as intended. http://pets.webshots.com/album/556255465UnKBcm?start=0
I like yours better though
"My biggest fear is that when I die my husband is going to try to sell all my horses and tack for what I told him they cost."
Back in the days before you could buy antlers for your animals, I made a set out of chicken wire and paper bags and went into a costume class with my horse as a reindeer (she was a petite chestnut so it worked) and me as an elf. It was going just fine and we were in the line-up. The judge had everyone back. When we backed, the crowd started howling with laughter. I couldn't figure it out until afterward when someone told me it looked like my mare was getting ready to gore the judge. I know, weird sense of humors in that crowd.
Some beautiful pictures, guys—thanks! To answer some questions, 1) yes, it's Arrietty. She was actually unfazed by the gear but acutely interested in tasting the camera! Fenway was dressed up, too, but she kept blocking my shot. 2) That's my black chihuahua, Clover, in the background.
I think I need to try one more round of photos next time the sun comes out, but it feels like Barrow, AK around here lately: so much cloud cover that it almost looks like eternal twilight.
