glove compartment

it’s amazing what you find in your glove compartment. as Death Cab for Cutie sings, “The glove compartment is inaccurately named and everybody knows it.”

i took these polaroids in … 2008 ? I think ? i guess it doesn’t really matter at this point. more horse photos, just what you wanted to see, i know. i’m sorry, i’m sorry. when you’ve been riding horses for sixteen years – you are bound to take a few million hundred pictures of them.

tickles a.k.a. Show N Tell

Tickles. i had the privilege of owning and showing this mare for a few years during high school.

i was not in town when she was sold, therefore i was not there to say my ‘goodbyes’ – this left me more guilt ridden than i could have imagined until finally, this past September of ’09, i made my way to San Diego (while on tour with The Foghorns – don’t worry, it’s not nearly as glamorous as it sounds). this painting was based off a photograph i took of her from that trip. she was several months pregnant at the time i reunited with her and balled my eyes out. she’s due in March.

i’ll post baby Tickles’ photos after she’s gone through the whole i’m-a-horse-having-a-baby thing (can you imagine?). oh man, i love this horse. here’s an older picture of her from her younger days when i owned her:

you’ll see more pictures of her on my Nikon page. i just had to share this little gem i discovered back when i was sorting through my stockpile of photographs.
