He’s a Cheeky One!

How do you explain to a horse that he has to pose for a photo?  Especially when that horse is a cheeky fellow like Biasini.  I have done  some product reviews for Omega Alpha equine supplements. When I reviewed RegenerEQ, a digestive supplement, I wanted to show Biasini in the photo as I thought that would be more interesting than just a photo of the product bottle.

So my husband came to the barn to take the photos.  Biasini and I are ready and I make sure I have the name of the product visible toward the camera. Then Biasini decides he would like to take the top off the bottle.

Then he tries licking the bottle. Yes, that is his pink tongue you can see left of the bottle.

When that doesn’t work he tries to push the bottle toward me to get me to open it for him.

I settle for a photo with him nibbling on the bottle. It looks like he likes the product doesn’t it?

These photos were taken  a year ago . That was before Biasini started “speaking” with his own blog posts. Last weekend when I told him we were going to do a photo shoot for his Christmas blog post he posed like a star.

      It was made by a friend of mine who lives in Vancouver BC. She does custom browbands. You could look her up on the web her business is called DQ Designs. I think the website is http.dqdesigns.wix.com. Her name is Pamela and she is also a dressage rider.

    Ha ha! Next time you get an uncooperative photo subject, (and you’re using a cellphone–I know, a big consideration since they don’t all take good photos) what you need is….the “All Ears” selfie app! Costs a couple of bucks (US$ anyway) and works through the camera on your cell phone. It has all kinds of neat attention-getting sounds, like 10 different kinds of horse whinnies, peppermint wrappers crackling, feed hitting the feed bucket, dogs barking, even donkeys braying…you get the idea. You can play the sounds as you look through your camera and just snap when ready. Pretty cool app!
