Yesterday afternoon, I drove out to the Gayla Driving Center to work with Sterling Graburn on a photo shoot to illustrate an article on long-lining, scheduled for the August issue of The Carriage Journal.

Here are a few things I saw, and a couple of the other animals I met, while there:

.

Ulano (a Dutch Harness Horse) waited patiently in his cross-ties, before getting suited up to be the star of our photo shoot on long-lining

.

Katie is very friendly and, as you’ll see, kept us company for the duration

.

… Lucky, however, chose to simply watch us from the rafters

.

on the way out of the barn … I kinda love this shot

.

Katie, still keeping me company …

.

… and walking back to the barn with Ulano and Sterling …

.

… and, after we were finished, waiting to go on a carriage ride

.

Sterling and Ulano
