Skippers at Sunset

This was taken in June 2013, when five wildfires were raging in Colorado.  Skippa Dancing, Skipper W mare, great-granddaughter of Skippa Star, had just foaled Skippo Grace five days earlier. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dancer Sunset & Rowdy Born

I was looking through my camera lens for Fancy (Shaw Lady), granddaughter of immortal Skippa Star, as she was ready to foal. As I turned around, I was lucky enough to catch Dancer (Skippa Dancing) and her ¾ Skipper W daughter Gracie (Skippo Grace) at the top of the hill, backlit by a sunset.
