On Sunday we took the kids on a surprise ride down to Old Lyme. McCulloch Farm, home of Whipporwill Morgan horses (check out their website here), was having an open barn event called “Foals and Flowers.” So we packed a picnic lunch, and made our way to Old Lyme to enjoy the beautiful day in […]
Sunday was an eventful day, photographically speaking. So I’ll be dividing it up into two parts – day and night. For the daytime, I had one chance encounter, and one planned. The chance involved the New England Central Railroad, and the planned was up at my alma mater – the University of Connecticut.

But the Four Town Fair has something else to offer – a Cowboy Mounted Shooting demonstration put on by the Connecticut Renegades, a CMS team from north-central […]

This past Saturday was our hometown’s Memorial Day parade. As we do every year, we head down to the town green, and watch the procession – which includes everything from current soldiers and veterans to goats and horses.
Yesterday was a very difficult day for us at home. We had to say goodbye to a long time part of the family. Our quarter horse, Mandy, has been sick the past month or so, and she wasn’t making any progress, so we had a tough decision to make. At nearly 31 years old, we […]
I finally got through all 1500+ images I took at the Lebanon Fair this past weekend. Yep, that’s not a typo – I took over one thousand five hundred photos over 3 days of the fair! The weather was beautiful on Saturday & Sunday, and Friday was a little rainy, but not bad overall.
