Our friends, Liz and Doug, owners of Mileham Show Horses, recently invited us up for dinner, and to meet the newest addition to their stable, a pretty little filly named Eve. We started the visit with a short hike at their nearby hunting camp - 200+ beautiful acres of wilderness near Norwood, Ontario - then returned to the stables to meet Eve and her mother, "Julie knows the rules".
We were in store for a real treat on this visit, both Eve and her mom were outside, untethered, and when we entered the enclosure, Eve wasted no time coming up to meet us. Liz was pretty impressed with Eve's independance (she didn't wait for her mother) and her curiosity. So were we. I certainly wasn't expecting to get nearly as close as I did, but this proximity made the images that much more powerful, in my opinion.
