Betsy and Rudy In Storybook Land

These are photos I took today of my soon to be 29 year old Paint, Rudy with my dear friend and riding buddy Betsy Hudson, aka; Ms. Sunshine.

I used a poster filter in Photoshop on them and just love the effect!

To me, they look like illustrations out of a storybook. What do you think?

Rudy is in heaven here. Betsy brought him a bucket of Stud Muffins for his birthday which is next week. He just loves them and goes into a state of utter ecstasy when eating them. It changes his whole appearance and he takes on the look of a horse half his age.


  1. Hi Sandy,
    Great photos, and I like the posterizing. Your horse is beautiful. How long have you had him?
    By the way, I have to tell you this. One of the neighbor kids when I was growing up was named Thomas Thomas Thomas. No kidding. Of course, we called him Tommy Thomas. Hope you have a great week, and good luck with all your workshops!

  2. Hi Chery1
    Thanks for the comment! Rembrandt (aka; Rudy) has been my fur baby since he was a yearling! Since you are on Facebook too, check out my photo album: "Still Horse Crazy After All These Years" on my profile page and you'll see pictures of him and all the horses I've owned and loved. Thanks also for following me! I'll see you on FB! Hugs, Sandy, Rudy & Rita too!

  3. What fun photos! You can see how much fun both of you are having! Rudy looks great for 29.
