December, 2009 image and text:
I had not seen the beauty in Gandalf until I began to photograph him. Captured on film was an image of grace, a majestic and regal figure. Our Freedom Rides have provided me a unique opportunity to observe the relationship each horse has with the other and with me as we interact with one another— a moving tapestry, a ballad, a sonnet, a waltz.
Of all my horses, Gandalf is my most dependable. He is the one I choose whenever I am about to learn how to do something new. Driving a single hitch for the first time, driving a tandem hitch for the first time, pulling logs, moving cows, chasing down a renegade pony…
He is the most forgiving of my errors and understanding of my human flaws.
