    Woah! Just wandered into my kitchen to find this staring at me - scared the bajeesus out of me!

    So, seems like I have some new neighbours (he has a friend with him - but he's wearing a coat :\).

    Any tips on shooting horsies? Not sure how long they're gonna be staying!

    No! I'm after shooting tips & inspiration, that's exactly what I want you to do!

    As I say, I don't know how long they're gonna be sticking around, so the more the better! :D

    Carrots : Check (I actually have far more than I can possibly eat - convenient!)
    Wide lens : Check

    Your images are great fun, gonna have to have a play :)

    heh, well that didn't go too well - they're a bit frisky, and jump around too much for me to get anything much :\

    I considered an elaborate remote release setup with my tripod // camera low down - but I don't feel safe doing that, as they stamp about a fair bit!

    Bah, just have to keep on going out giving them carrots & hope they grow to like me :D

    They make a fantastic crunching noise :D

    Got this - meh

    What's a horse doing in your kitchen anyway?
    And won't you get in trouble if you start shooting horses... I think there was a song about that.

    That's what I said. He was helping himself to coffee and everything!
    Which is why I shot him.
