Mom and her baby


We found these two cuties at a small horse farm northeast of Ocala, near Jumbolair, the home of John Travolta.

What is there to say? How could you possibly find anything NOT to like here. Beautiful animals indeed. Nice work Jacob.

Lovely portrait in a perfect setting with wonderful colors.

Lee Spangler said...

Great color and composition, but if someone wanted to give me a horse, I'd say neigh.

Passing by Jacob :).

Great shot. You know me---I love horses. MB

Cezar and Léia said...

I do love horses and this picture is so sweet!
(btw,when I was a teen I was completely in love for Travolta! LOL it was about that movie: Saturday Night Fever !I saw that movie 8 times!
LOL
ahhh about my post, that Cathedral picture ( I think it was not a good shot...anyway ...) I did nothing with it, only that "auto correct"light in normal windows, no photoshop in this case.

Hey...don't tell Cezar about John Travolta okay! LOL ;)

wonderful capture!

Marie said...

This photo is very pretty and as elegant as the horses in it. Horses are wonderful animals but I get dizzy when I'm on their backs.

When I click on my cdpb logo, I get a message saying that the account has been suspended. I think the bill has not been paid. I don't understand why my lines are still so long. Yours look just fine. I need to take classes, for sure.

I'm not sure whether my comment has been registered...

These cuties are in a great shape and they look very beautiful. Idyllic scene!

Allison said...

Are you sure you didn't meander up to Minnesota for that shot, Jacob? I don't see any alligators in the picture anywhere! Oh wait...is that a pair of reptile eyes looking over the grass on the left? I KNEW it!!

Birdman said...

I like this one! This captures what summer is all about, grazing doing nothing. I'm doing this today.

Quit horsin' around, Jacob Meister!

The closeness of the mother and her foal is extremely lovely!

Dianne said...

the Mom's coat is so unusual to me, a bit like marble
it really stands out next to her baby

beautiful

I see the youngster is staying close to mom. Good way to learn about life. Great shot.

Prospero said...

Very pleasing shot, Jacob.

I can not tell you how much I love these animals. Here in Minnesota, the state fair starts tomorrow. One of my favorite things to do there is visit the horse barn. It is is great that you have these horse farms all around you.
A very cool picture indeed. Gorgeous animals.

Daryl said...

Beautiful shot .. a keeper !

Frank said...

Simply a beautiful and idyllic scene. You must have some gorgeous horse farms up your way.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Awwww . . . how cute!! Love this. I did my master;s thesis research on horses.

Lois said...

You caught the younger one swishing his tail! They are both beautiful.

Denise and Tim Higgins said...

awww beautiful horses! That is such a beautiful area up there. Thank you for the email..I have fixed the comment problem! :) We love this shot you took!

Jacob said...

@ Allison - No alligators lurking here. And no, this was not taken in Minnesota. You can tell by the fact that the horses are not trembling from fear of frozen nights which they usually do when they think they might be sold to a Minnesotan!

namaki said...

this baby looks quite big already ;-)

Jarart said...

You know I'm lovin this one, Jacob.

Jacob said...

@ Leia - I don't think Cezar is too worried about your infatuation with Travolta as a teen...but I won't tell him anyway. Ok, Cezar? You know nothing!

The cathedral shot is superb even if you didn't Photoshop it!

By the way, Travolta comes into town sometimes on his Harley. I've heard he shops at Wal-Mart late at night so he won't be mobbed by people.

So beautiful, so peaceful.

jusdealem said...

Aww, they are beautiful. Great capture!

Rambling Round said...

So sweet. Looks like the grass is good and green.

Great shot!

Thank you for all your help today! I think I have all the kinks worked out on the daily blog. I look forward to more of your photos!

Marie said...

Thank you very much, Jacob. I changed the width when you told me to try that but it didn't really help. Today I controlled the width manually (carriage returns???), that's why the lines are not too long. I should learn about html a little bit :-)))
My "followers" have come back but not the CDPB logo. I hope I've not been attacked by a hacker!

Thank again and have a great evening. Here mine is almost over already.

Jacob said...

@ Marie - I'm stumped. I don't really think you've been hacked...but something's. You may have to replace the CDPB logo yourself...it may have been deleted accidentally.

JM said...

How beautiful they are! And the photo looks like a painting.

Timeless!

Very sweet!
