Hoofbeats and Paw Prints

Where there are horses there are usually cats. Kindred spirits that live in harmony together. The cats help keep the mice at bay, while the horses enjoy their hay. This week I had the opportunity to visit a beautiful, historical and rustic barn in Poolesville for photo shoot […]

Getting a Second Chance

There’s a place out in the beautiful Maryland farm country that is a haven for horses that have been neglected and mistreated. The Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Woodbine, Maryland has been giving a second chance to horses in need since 1989 and with their life-saving program […]
