There is something beautiful about a girl and her horse. The lovely girl in these pictures is my cousin, Maren; the horse is her beloved Fred. A few nights ago, I went with Maren to the barn where Fred lives to get some photos of her doing what she loves and does best...caring for her horse. Fred was quite seriously ill over the last couple years, but Maren stuck by him, persisted and nursed him; she drove to the barn multiple times a day for dressing changes, injections, appointments...not to mention the everyday basic care...all for the love of Fred.
Maren - you are a young woman of passion and determination. Fred is a blessed horse to have you as his own; and, even though the stinker wasn't in the mood to model for these pictures, I know he loves you. I do too.
