Photo Hunt - Shoes

This week's Photo Hunt theme is shoes. Shoes? How do you make a picture of shoes interesting? I was at a loss until I saw my daughters out grooming their horse yesterday. Despite all the eye-rolling I got and mumbled whispers of "Mom is so weird!" I persevered in getting these.Boots. The shoe of choice for any farmer, rancher, or cowgirl wannabe.

Great photos! When I was a young girl, I loved pretending to be a cowgirl. It must be wonderful to have your own horse.

Great photos! I especially liked the third one .. :)

I'm just surprised at how clean they are! Great shots, too! My daughters thought I was crazy when I was taking pictures of their feet, too!

Great shots, great idea. You should have taken pictures of the horseshoes.

Mama Bear June said...

Nice! Brings back good memories of being out at the barn with our horse when we lived in Texas.

Miz said...

Boots are always in fashion.

Jenn in Holland said...

You're not so weird. I have done the same (and worse possibly) for the sake of getting the picture!
These are great shots!

Mimomma said...

Thank you for your kind and uplifting words! My, 6 girls - almost a 'quiverfl!' I have one daughter, two daughters-in-law, and four granddaughters! (Our fifth grandbaby is due at T-giving but we don't know what s/he is yet.)

Here's the address you requested - I altered this pattern to make it more circular so it would drape better l-)

Great photos! And the horse had shoes too?

Karen said...

Ok, I'm LOVING the last picture. IMHO, that's actually suitable for framing! :) Very cool!
Figures your dd thought you were weird. I've got an almost 13 yr old and everything I do is weird!
Thanks for sharing!

Great shots all. I have a pair of boots I hike with. Make for safer footing. I like the last shot best with the horse shoes in the shot!

Great photo. I like the one of the people and horse shoe.

eastcoastlife said...

Cool! Lovely boots. Would love to see the expression on your daughter's face. hehe.....

PastorMac's Ann said...

Oh I love your take on the theme. These are great photos. The life of a ranch/farm shoe. My kids are often thinking the "mom's so weird" comments when I enlist their help with pictures for the Photo Hunt. Nice job.

fibrate said...

Very nice shots. You have such lovely girls!

tasra said...

Great shoes...love that they're on the fence, in the hay, really living it up and doing their duty!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my shoes.

YTSL said...

Boots appear to be a popular choice of footwear to photograph as well as wear among us Photo Hunters. BTW, love that brown and blue combo too... ;b

JC said...

Wonderful shots... I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite, they each have their interest points.

Teena said...

Nice looking shoes!

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

julie said...

If only our country (Philippines) is not a tropical country, I would love wearing boots too. It is too hot to be wearing boots here, :)

Nice photos, especially the one with the hooves.

Darren said...

Great Shots!

srp said...

Love the boots and how great your girls have a horse. You could show the horse shoe as well! Never thought of that!

Patricia said...

Those are excellent. I get the "Mom is so weird" comments, too! Be blessed!

Mom Unplugged said...

Great cowgirl photos! My kids think I am weird too! Sorry I am so late in making the rounds - busy weekend!

mommyness said...
