he gets more handsome every day




Apache Moon nearing the end of his tenth year. Today he lay down outside my window and curled up in the sunshine. How's a gal supposed to get any work done when something so handsome is competing with the computer screen?

Great picture of a very handsome boy. It's a wonder any of us get any work done with these gorgeous equines vying for our attention.

Ooohh...my heart leaps! What a handsome man he is! I would too be quite distracted.

You just can't. You just have to give him all the admiration that is his due.

Thanks, Jane. His "star" used to look more like a snail but now it is getting sort of star-bursty - I think that and his mixed forelock are my favorite parts of the facial markings.

Needless to say, he is a nightmare for the vet who has to replicate all of the markings on the Coggins.

Arlene, it's true. It's a wonder, although no one would be too confused if they saw my house right now. It's pretty clear I spend my time gazing, not cleaning. :)

Jenn, he is def. an attention-getter off the farm too. Fortunately he loves getting oohed and ahhed over.

billie said...

Maire, that might become his new mantra. "I deserve all the attention that is my due." I can see it now! :)

Billie, what a stunning lad. His face has an intriguing map-like quality that, along with that intense stare, give him the air of a man of mystery. He could never, ever be mistaken for anyone else.

Sheaffer, he's def. a one of a kind pony!

Amazing markings, absolutely gorgeous!

Jennifer, his markings on his body are very unusual too.

Your website and artwork are lovely - do you ever do farm signs?
