Photoshoot - FAIL

Yesterday afternoon despite cold, wind and general weather bleh-ness, I decided to get some Christmas pictures of the boys. I must have been high on sugar from all the cookies.   

Horse-torture by any other name... 
I'm continually amazed at what they put up with.

Antlers, even with jingle bells on were no big deal.  But I kept ending up with one nose or the other plastered to the camera lens.


I finally resorted to haltering them and wrapping their leadropes around the bale feeder (they're not tied fast).  Which worked... sort of.

At least they're both looking in the right direction...
I'd thought - silly me - that the bow, especially the streamers, would catch their attention. Nope.  Not at all. 

Getting both of them looking at me at the same time was so not happening.

Eventually they decided to nap.

Cropped and cleaned up, the best of a bad lot.

Amazingly moose-like

There's a treat in this for me, right?

Are we done yet?
I'll try again another day - 
preferably one with some sun, less wind, 
and more cooperative critters!

OMG, too funny! But it does look like they were good sports about the antlers.
