    morning whispers

    Our entry for the Photography Society's March challenge, featuring ECL White Sails in this morning's fog. ♥

  • I hope that comments are welcome.. :fingers_crossed_tone2:
    I really love your edit and that horse i gorgeous! :heart_eyes:

  • ECL Avec au Vin

    An entry for the Arabian Horse Society's Showcase Challenge. So far Vinny, as we call him, is our only Arabian... we'll see how long that'll last ;)

    @Keith-Vennenhöf Thank you, that means so much to me! Sailor was one of my first horses <3

  • I love the atmosphere in the photo! Vinny looks lovely! (plus its good to see other French people- and that show name is very telling, haha!)

  • Holy woah! I simply just love you'r horses. :heart_eyes:

  • ecl myrtille

    (Whew, another post from me?) This is ECL Myrtille, a British warmblood who's very lucky to be owned by @Jimmy-Sutherland!! He'll definitely enjoy his time at Spring Hill Equestrian :smile:

    @Marquis-Moulin Thank you! I always try to put emphasis on the atmosphere of the photo, since a lot of times it makes or breaks it (and let me say this one was quite the challenge). Thanks again for the comment! :wine_glass:

    @Keith-Vennenhöf Ahh thank you so much! I adore your horses as well, they look a m a z i n g :heart_eyes:

  • The world & the background looks so great.
    & of course the horse, too

  • OMG stop with all those gorgeous horses!! :heart_eyes:

    Another entry for the Photography Society's March challenge. This little cutie is ECL Nameless, a Hanoverian-Thoroughbred cross out of ECL Ouï-dire (who I haven't introduced yet). He's super sweet and loves posing for us in the fields :sunflower:

    @Mira-Green Thank you! I can't wait to finish my facilities so I can post more pictures of them and the world :slight_smile:

    @Keith-Vennenhöf No YOU stop with all the nice comments! (Seriously though, thanks for always taking the time to write something nice. It makes me very happy and motivated <3 )

  • Awwwwwww! :heart_eyes:
    Is his real name really Nameless? Or don‘t you have a name yet? xD

  • What a cutie! I love his coat, so vibrant and lively.

  • Aww what a lovely photo! Nameless is a really cutie!

  • Are you French ? where you just decided to settle in France for the landscapes haha ?
    Anyway, I love your horses and your pics are awesome :3

  • Awwwwwww!!! :heart_eyes: I'm in love! what a cute little fella! Can't wait to follow him grow up!

  • winter's serenade


    ECL Nameless, or Nommie, again, frolicking in the snow a few weeks ago. He's so silly and loves jumping on and over everything whether it be a tuft of grass, a twig, or his mama (yes, there was an attempt). The snow didn't seem to hinder the bounce in his step at all :snowman:

    @Hilda-Wilson That's his name alright XD I thought it'd be funny if he did end up making a name for himself in the competition ring and his name was Nameless... though I guess it'd also be a bit sad if he didn't... (in addition to not knowing what to name him, but shhh about that part)

    @Addelle-Watson Thank you! I love making bay coats <3

    @Marquis-Moulin Thank you!

    @Mathilde-Dahler I can't believe I've managed to fool you all into thinking I'm French XD ...I'm not French myself nor have I lived in France (I've traveled there though and it's really beautiful). I was debating for the longest time whether to set my stable in England or France, but since the owner's name was French (la Coupe) I decided to go with France. And no regrets! Thank you!! <3

    @Keith-Vennenhöf aaah Thank you! I can't wait to see him grow up either and start competing but at the same time I'm super sad. (And the weird part is I usually don't feel that way when it comes to aging the foals up :thinking: I guess he's special)

  • Haha I though t! Where did you go in France ? Ah well, France is great :sunglasses:
    You're welcome

  • Such a cute foal, cant wait to see more !

  • gloomy

    It's supposed to rain this weekend and in the latter half of next week. Possible thunderstorms.

    Anyway, this is ECL Promesse Éternelle, currently sporting the "it-looks-like-I-have-three-legs" look. He really doesn't like rain (let alone thunder), but he'll roll all around mud and wet grass any day. Ugh. (We still love him lots though.)

    @Mathilde-Dahler Haha, what possibly could have given it away?! (Asides from my punctuation, poor use of the language, and little knowledge of the culture...lol) I went to the obligatory Paris :slight_smile:

    @Nicole-Löffler Thank you! I can't wait to see more from you too!!

    (side note: I can't believe I've already posted so much to this blog XD Don't be too surprised if I just crash and leave for a month or something--not that I'm planning to do so, but just because I don't know if I can keep up with this rate of updating. Thanks so much for all of your support, it means so much to me! <3 )

  • What a nice and atmospheric shots! Love it :heart:
