Friday Flash 55 - "A Cowboy Dreams..."


A cowboy dreams
of wide open ranges

bright orange sunsets,
a faithful dog
and a horse with heart.


Silver bits, spurs, leather chaps
and awesome boots.  

And, of course,

Let's not forget the saddle bag
and flask...


What is my little wrangler 
pondering?


"When will Mommy be done 
with this photo shoot?"


This is for "Mr. Know-it-All's" Friday Flash 55.  Can you tell a story in 55 words?  Well, come join the fun and try it!  The last photo I entered in the "Dover Saddlery Photo Contest" along with ten others I have taken over the past month or so - you can see them HERE.  I'm NOT saying vote for mine, but if you like horses, click on the link and see the beautiful photography and vote for the ones you like. 

I will be swinging by this weekend to take a look at all the other 55's.  I am attending a horse seminar by Buck Brannaman Friday and I am ALSO getting my 1/2 Friesian 1/2 Quarter Horse on Sunday!!

Wow... that's a lot of links... ha!  Have a nice weekend!

Your "little wrangler" is too cute. Was he a willing subject or did it take a little bribery? Whatever it took was well worth it--great photos. How exciting about your horse!!! Mickie :)

Hahaha.. really cute..... Loved your little cowboy sippin' sarsaparilla out of a juice-box! And is it just me or does that horse look a little startled by his little stick with another horses head on it? smiles....

George said...

Lovely photos, Margaret! It appears that you have a great life, and it's a great pleasure to have it shared with us. Good luck in the photo contest. I think you've got a shot — no pun intended.

Ginnie said...

In a word: PRICELESS. I do love your little man, Margaret!

Steve Isaak said...

Good write, good interplay between photos/words.

Lydia said...

So charming! He will be grateful for this photo shoot when he grows up and sees how beautifully you journaled his youth in photos and words. That pic of him standing by the horse with his stick horse could surely win awards. It is marvelous!

Margaret said...

Thank you for enjoying my photos. He is fun to photograph and I missed a great opportunity today as I didn't have my camera. I put a napkin over his shirt so pasta sauce wouldn't stain it... but he removed it and tucked it into the BACK of his shirt... said he wanted to wear a cape and be a super hero. A man sitting next to us said "What superhero do you want to be" and my little son said "Superhero Will" (that's his 18 year old brother).

Yes, I wish I could capture all these sweet moments on film, but a few get away....
