I really enjoy photographing dogs and I had loads of fun photographing these four rescue Border Collies. It was quite a challenge to get them all to sit together, as soon as one sat down another one moved, so it took a while to get this shot. Add to that, the two horses that were also in the field to be photographed and we had the recipe for a lively afternoon of photography. At one point, one of the horses tried to pick up my camera bag and walk off with it!!
Animals always look best with their ears up and alert, it’s pretty simple to get dogs to do this, but horses are a little trickier. We were making funny noises, waving bags of carrots and generally playing the fool to get these two to pose nicely.
