“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

I will start with our pets....

Phoebe and Gucci

Mademoiselle Gucci (Poochie) 'Liesbet Skoog. She is a rescue from Tennessee. Pregnant before a year old, could not deliver the pups and three days later was taken to the Vet for a section. The owners never picked her up.

I know, I know....out of control again.

Season's Greetings from DJ and Phoebe (Therapy dog duty at an Elementary School).

Phoebe and me...

Glen Aberlour, 11 year old Pony of the Americas.

Babe's Opal (Pony), 29 year old 1/2 Arab 1/2 Welsh/Morgan. Has taught many children to ride.

Masterpiece of '79 is a 30 year old Appy (no spots) with a little thoroughbred in there. He has a bum knee but is still lookin' good with a decent quality of life.

Berlin is a 24 year old 3/4 Trakehner. She is the horse I ride the most.

Bermuda is now our only cat. He was rescued nearly 18 years ago.

All of the above are living the good life here at Skoog Farm, and certainly have a great impact on mine.

Here are some of our friends pets....

Dr. Porter (from Florida)

Ice (Jenny's dog)

Duncan (our farrier's dog)

Buster Brown (Jenny's dog)

Lillie May (Trina's dog)

Bellini (Helen's dog)

DJ (Tina's dog)

I could do this for days....
