PHOTOS OF THE DAY – ROADBLOCKS – November 11, 2015

Coming around the bend this morning, on my way to Tucker farm for a date with a handsome three year old named Dart, I ran into a roadblock. Well not exactly. I rather thought the roadblock might run into me.

I slammed on my brakes and jumped out of my car with my camera in hand….shaking my head…muttering, “Oh Brother.” (love to mutter)

I recognized these roadblocks. In fact a few years ago I corralled these very roadblocks. They live on the other side of a ridge, in the next valley over from the funny farm. Twice that day, the owners, including four kids of varying sizes, had to come get their roadblocks and lead them home.

They sure were beautiful this morning. I had to have some fun shooting these guys before I found someone to call the owners.

For Photos of the Day…sometimes they run right in front of me!!!

Here is what I drove up on. This is when I said, “Oh Brother….I know these roadblocks.”POTD_15_11_11_loose_horses

Are the roadblocks headed my way? I know they are friendly…POTD_15_11_11_2_loose_horses
