While out wandering around the neighborhood taking photos of the snowstorm yesterday, I stopped to take pictures of my favorite Old Mission Peninsula horses – Summer and Sugar – at Dean and Laura Johnson’s farm (the old Rude farm for longtime OMPers; aka my brother and sister-in-law) on the corner of Kroupa Road and Center Road.
These two horses never fail to be great photography subjects, especially in the winter with their auburn bodies against a snowy backdrop. See more of my favorite photos here and here.

I stopped along Center Road because Sugar was down by the fenceline, and Summer delighted me by galloping from the barn all the way down to the fence. Spectacular!
And I can’t help but mention the irony of snowy pictures in April of a horse named “Summer.”
(I *think I’ve identified them correctly – Dean and Laura, feel free to correct me in the comments below.)
Here are a few more photos…
Jane, The horse pictures are fantastic, and congratulations on the award from the environmental group. That’s so fantastic. Keep up the wonderful work. Janis Haine
Thanks for your dedication to our community and especially for keeping us mindful of our priceless Peninsula’s geology, ecology, human geography and rich history. Congratulations on your well earned award. Your words and photos enrich, inform and encourage citizens of OMP.
With gratitude,. Amy Lyman
[…] Everyone always asks me about Dean and Laura’s horses, especially the one with the swayed back (just due to a long life)! That’s Sugar. The other one is named Summer. […]
