The best thing about having a new camera is getting to run around & take photos for fun. No I never want to be considered a professional photographer but I do love taking nice photos. Tina & I went to a barrel race yesterday & took some snap shots while hanging out at the trailer.

We really need to snag someone to video tape us/photograph us when we run because we never seem to have time then. Any ways, here are a few cool shots.

Tina wanted me to point out how her nails at coordinated with her belt. She was excited about her new nail stickers, apparently they are just Sally Hansen brand but they were still in place after the show. I’m actually curious to see how long they last.

Tina, being a Tina.

Rumor, aka miss dirty face. She absolutely hates having her face cleaned no matter how much I try to touch it she prefers that I stay away.

In the process of taking off Rumor’s boots & bell boots after her run. I cannot believe how many barrel racers leave protective boots on their horses all day at the trailer. Wearing protective boots when the horse isn’t running keeps the leg warm & also makes it more susceptible to injury from long time use. You would be surprised how many people don’t know that.

We can’t forget my trusty Rios of Mercedes boots… so comfy.

Topaz hanging out.

That’s all for now, I’m spending the afternoon playing catch up on a few things & enjoying the sunshine.

      I wish we could come & be your personal photographer, miss you!

  • Nice! Love the boots and the horses, of course! ~M

  • I am diggin those nails!

  • Loving the boots and nails! The horses too of course. 😉

    • BTW, I notice that a lot of people here leave their boots on all day too. I leave mine on for trailering and riding but if my horse is just standing around I take them off.

      • Raquel

        Good, I’m glad to hear you do as well. I always want to go over & say something but then I realize they will just look at me like I’m a crazy lady lol

  • Love these photos! You are both so stylish!

    • Raquel

      Thanks Melissa!

  • LOVE it!! and those boots are amazing 🙂

  • Danielle

    I love the cheetah print nails!

  • Brandy

    I have the same problem with Okie’s face! Then I put sunscreen on her and she gets dirt wrinkles around her eyes!

  • Yeah I tried the Sally Hansen stickers Tina is wearing they were great but with all of the housework I do they only lasted about 3days but still cheaper than getting them professionally done. I just love Rumor and the braids on Topaz very cool.
