My Latest Day Trip

DAY TRIPS ARE THE BEST!

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to take a trip to a 1000+ acre prairie in my local area, which happens to be an actual working cattle ranch too!

Some of the beautiful things I saw were:

  • Momma cows and their newborn calves
  • Wild boar
  • Very different bird species
  • Deer
  • Beautiful ponds everywhere
  • Unusual Oak tree formations
  • Crazy amounts of grasshoppers
  • Natural Florida wildflowers

Take a look at some of my photos on my Facebook page here:

Happy trails on YOUR next day trip!

Happy Father’s Day

Family Portrait Day on the Farm

 

Capturing your special family moments are the most fun when done outdoors. Using natural light and surroundings, I create beautiful memories for years to come. People and pets change through the years and I provide quality, professional portraits that are lasting reminders of loved ones you’ve shared your lives with. Where would you like to have YOUR photo session?

Family Portraits Are Forever!

Summer Treats For Horses

Safe Treats For Your Horses in HOT weather

Nice cold treats are not just for your horse when it’s hot, like here in Florida where the temps have been in the upper 90’s. They supply your horse with much needed water they have lost through sweating and also provide tons of fiber that helps keep the digestive tract moving.

Here are some of the safe fruits and veggies you can give your horse and believe me, you will see lots of slobbering as they devour these treats!

  • Watermelon (and yes, the rind too and I prefer the seedless)
  • Honey Dew Melon cut into chunks with the rind
  • Seedless grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas (great source of Potassium)
  • Blueberries
  • Lettuce
  • Mango
  • Dates
  • Figs
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Corn on the cob

That is just a partial list of things I have personally fed my horse.

Something pretty cool (literally) I like to do is put several fruits and veggies in a small container, cover with water and freeze. Then when fully frozen, take it out to your horse and put in a feed pan on the ground and watch the excitement as they lick and lick until they reach all the neat things you’ve put in the frozen “popsicle”! I keep several of these frozen treats in my freezer so that my horse can have a cool treat at least several times a week. You can even add crushed minerals to this mixture for added benefits.

Enjoy the summer with your horses and keep them cool!
