nighthorseI used to be indifferent to falling back.  The extra hour of sleep on the one day is nice but whatever.  The choice of driving to work in the dark, or driving home in the dark, isn’t that material to me, and once December comes, it’s in the dark both ways regardless of Daylight time or Standard time.

Then I got into horses.  And maybe Daylight time is great if you have horses on your property and getting up to do early morning chores isn’t quite as dreadful if the sun is up.  I, however, am a city girl and I get my horsey time in the evenings.  Which are now pitch black.  It could be worse; the place I ride has a well-lit, semi-heated arena for lessons.

I’ve been sick and missed lessons; yesterday was my first time out since the time change.  And it is worse: I had to go catch my assigned horse, in the dark.  This presented a number of problems: Read the rest of this entry »

More research required, but an interesting video none the less.  Plus, what better to appease the rabid horse fans that populate DWR. :)

Recently, I started volunteering with the Rescue 100 Horses Foundation. They’re a group that formed several years ago when a previously well-established Arabian breeding operation went under and left all its horses to starve. The original hundred horses have all been fed up to healthy weights and found homes, but unfortunately there are still cases of abuse and neglect and there’s still work for the foundation. My volunteer duties are (1) to socialize the horses, and teach them that when a human shows up in the pasture, it’s a good thing; and (2) photography.

There are currently three foals in care, who were born last spring to mares who came in pregnant. The rescue has brand-new baby pictures of them, but nothing current. The other day I went out to get some current pictures, and discovered that photographing baby horses is even more challenging than photographing puppies of the same age. They are curious. They are rambunctious. They want to nibble on you. Unlike puppies, they weigh several hundred pounds and have pointy hooves that they kick with when they are startled. I didn’t get very many quality shots.
