Photo of the Day: Snowy Horse at Johnson Farms

0

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.)
