Meet Reno


Happy Sunday everyone. Hard to believe the weekend has come and gone already, but at least it was a relaxing one for a change. Yesterday I actually got a chance to finally clean up the studio and found a nice pair of scissors that I had misplaced a few months back. If only I had moved that pile of crap it was under weeks ago!

Another fun activity that I got to do this weekend was visit Hoofbeats and Heartbeats to get some reference material for the new children's book project i am working on. With that I wanted to introduce you to Reno, the soon to be star of the book. Linda was kind enough to bring Reno in from the back and got him all saddled up for some shots. Here are a few of him



The funniest thing of all though with the visit was all the other horses who were wondering what kind of mischief Reno was getting into(or what kind of treats he was getting more likely). They were all over the back fence area but as soon as Reno went inside they had to take turns looking in to see what he was doing. Nosy I tell ya! I know I am really going to enjoy this project and am going to be anxious to show you more updates as they come! Until then, you will just have to think of all the fun Reno could get into.

Sounds like a great new book project!!

Hey, are you still coming to Denver this weekend for the La Piazza event?

You do realize this project is like a little girl's dream come true? Particularly THIS little girl? Not fair, man. Not fair at all.

I'm with Christina... I have been obsessed with horses since I was little! Some guys have all the luck!

Hey Cynthia! It is going to be a great project. I am looking forward to sharing more images as I am able to.

As for the La Piazza event this weekend in Denver, unfortunately it is not going to work out this year to make it, but hope to be in next years annual festivities!

Thanks Christina and Nina. I do feel very fortunate to be able to work on this project with all the horses! I hope that you will come out to the Otsego area some time to check out all the wonderful horses Linda has.

Pretty horses.

I hate it when I know I have something and cant find it. Worse yet, I go out and buy a replacement only to find the original a short time later.

Same here Janet! Thanks for visiting. PS, congrats on your big New York Times appearance!

Shawn - so sorry you get these tough assignments. Rub that fuzzy nose for me! I can't wait to see this book. Marsha
