Summer Solstice

It was a hot and humid day for the start of summer. I waited until supper time to take the group out for a run.
I haven't let LuAnne out on our walks lately, but she wanted to tag along; she'll be 15 years old on the 27th of June.  I thought it was neat to see her standing watch over the youngsters which were all her descendants; Eden and Sushi her great-granddaughters and Trix is her great-great granddaughter.
Pete has mowed the perimeter of our fields but our guys like to go through the long grass

It was difficult to photograph them as I was losing them in the grass!
Love this shot of Finn with the wild flowers, his tongue the colour of clover.
The boys in the field
Evan coming into view
Finn having a rip roaring good time!
Bridgit, Lola , Trix and Mayer darting through the long grasses.  They would leap like gazelles...
Pretty Lola in the newly ploughed field
Lola closing in on Trix
Finn wishing there was water in the ditch...

Beautiful photos, love the lighting.

I think they are playing hide & seek in the tall grass! Who's the sable in the back of "Evan coming into view".. had to look twice 'cause with the long grass I'd almost think it was our Rocky.

Thanks Sprollies! It was early evening light which can be very soft...
Maureen: I think they like to hide and they are constantly playing tag. :-) The dark sable that reminds you of Rocky is Cocoa.

I thought it was Cocoa - love that dark sable sooooo much. What great shots.
