Horses of Jackson Hole Wyoming

We spent a couple of days last year testing equipment while in Jackson WY.  Sandy tested a new 300mm lens for her Canon 1DsIII and I tested the Phase One DF body and a Mamiya 300mm lens.  We went through a couple days of blowing snow which got so bad we couldn't do much af anything that wasn't close to us.

Moose WY is just a couple miles north of Jackson WY.  Situated in the Grand Teton National Park, and slightly further down the road is Mormon Row; home to the Moulton Barns and a working ranch.  This was where we made friends with a couple of working horses seen here.

We enjoyed being around the horses and watching them as they interacted with one another as well as how they coped with the cold blowing snow.  They also worked cheap - just a couple apples...

We'll be sharing more from these guys in the months to come; for now, thank you for allowing us to share and remember, your comments and questions are always welcome.
