Of churches, apples, and horses

So BGN was out and about this morning...

I went up to Chimayo (just east of Espanola) to take some pictures of the church up there, the Santuraio de Chimayo.

I needed some new reference pics of the church and this morning was perfect for taking pictures. The lighting and colors just look so nice in the morning light. I needed some new pics because I am going to update a older drawing I made featuring the church, Moonlight Song. So I got me some good shots of the church AND of something else too...

Right below the church is small field were a horse lives. This horse as been in this field for a few years. He's very social, always sticking his head over the fence interacting with visitors who walk from the parking lot by the field up to the church.

On my way back to the car I stopped and took some pics, and he came over and said hi to me. :D

He poked his head over and I got to pet him. He even started licking my hand. xD

While I was there, his owner came by and gave him his breakfast, fresh apples from his orchard. I chatted with him and even bought some apples from him too.

Two years ago I made a pic featuring a anthro horse based on him, seen in Out by the Pool on FA. I had a little contest this morning on twitter seeing if people could find him. A few people thought he was Susan but nope, it wasn't him. (though I have to admit my pic of Susan does look more like him than the horse in the pool pic xD )

Now if only I could get closer to the wild ones down in Placitas... xD

  1. Why visitors still make use of to read news papers when in this technological globe the whole thing is accessible
    on web?
