    I was asked to take some photos for my very good longtime friend Mike and his #1 American Paint horse, " in the world "... yes in the world, I was shocked ! The photos will be going towards an article of him and his horse in the American Paint Horse Association Magazine, Him and his daugther Niki, are the 2005 pinning champions, I'm kinda stoked about it and just got finish working over about 255 shots I took there yesterday on his land. I just wanted to share a few of my favorites with everyone before I hit the sack, I'm freakin tired and my neck is killen me. Here ya go.

    Nice! :thumbsup: I'm a member of the APHA but was too cheap to buy the subscription to the magazine. :lol: Hopefully you'll scan and post the magazine pages so we can see them. I'm curious, what discipline is the horse #1 in? They've got so many divisions these days. :D
