My GONZO! Photography Carnival Entry...


UPDATE: My mother is painting this photo for Travis & Tony!!!
This photo is my entry for the "A GONZO! Photography Carnival. I titled it "...My Mustang Men..." because the picture always reminded me of a "Marlboro" ad. Since my guys don't smoke, I couldn't say "My Marlboro Men", and they do work with mustang horses...

From left to right: Belle (Mustang Mare), Tony on Coal (Mustang Gelding), Clancey (Mustang Colt), Maggie (Clancey's Mustang Mom), and Travis on Cahlibur (Mustang Gelding). Katy is in front! The foothills of Mt. Pinos are in the background. BTW: Snow graces the top of Mt. Pinos this morning!

Tony and Travis are my sons and the horses are just as much family as the rest of our animals!

Terrific photo!

Snow graces the hill across the road from us this morning, too, but my hill is closer than your mountain...and I'm not horribly fond of snow!

Janey Loree said...

Thanks Tracey! I completely understand...we got our fill of snow when we lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming!!!

Marion said...

What a beautiful, classic photo, Janey! Such handsome horses and sons! Is it Katey I see in the picture?

Tonya said...

What an awesome photo... it could be a postcard or something!

Janey Loree said...

Hi Marion! Yes, that is Miss Katy in the middle, I was so excited when she strolled up in front of the horses and turned toward the camera...she knew!

Thanks Tonya! I think I will make it a postcard. I have a show in Paso Robles next month...I think I will make some up to see how they fare!!!

Sheila said...

You know, Janey, this a wonderful family shot. Katy looks like she is posing--looking right into the camera. The horses are beautiful and your sons look very "cowboy."

Janey Loree said...

Hi Sheila! This is my favorite picture of the guys, their mustangs and Katy!!

Sharon Lynne said...

How in the world did you get such a photo? Did it take much arranging? And even your dog is looking at the camera. You have a gift!

What a beautiful photograph. What scenery! It's a photograph I want to come back to and explore some more.

Visiting from the photography carnival.

Great photo of your men and the mythical wide open range. It's obvious that horses are a huge part of your life, and I've never even sat on one. Beautiful animals and countryside.

I'm visiting from the photography carnival.

Heather in Beautiful BC said...

Fabulous photo - men to be proud of for sure! I'm here via the carnival :)

Janey Loree said...

Hi Sharon Lynne! We just took the horses out into the field, TnT lined them up the way they wanted them, called Katy to the front and I took about 4 pictures!! It was a family project for getting a good Christmas Card picture!!!

Janey Loree said...

Thanks cedarwaxwing, JAM, & Heather for stopping by MnC!! I look forward to seeing your entries!!!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Beautiful country you live in, and the Mustang Men aren't bad either. :)

Janey Loree said...

Thanks Brian! Your pictures of the Outer Banks are awesome!!

Naomi said...

Love the wonderful photo Janey. Its just like a picture postcard scene. Your sons and their horses and Katy look like they're on the set of a western movie. My Mustang Men is a good title. Great photography! I'm here via the carnival.

Rising Rainbow said...

Wonderful photo. I agree with the rest. With western americana being such a big decorating theme these days, you could probably sell it in a large size like 16 by 20 for people to frame. Very nice.

So are you doing the next horse carnival? Sorry I didn't get back to you about a banner for the last one. Frankly, I think you're better at this computer thing than I am. Anything that's not already formated and I'm dead.

The GateKeeper said...

Yeah, it's a western movie with such handsome characters, and the Mustang Men aren't bad either . . . and cool scenery. Oh, I'm wishing to be there. Nice photograph, can't wait to see the painting. It's always a delight visiting with you and your family, Janey, even if it's just a virtual visit.

Janey Loree said...

Hi Naomi! Thanks for stopping by!! I love your photo of you and your Grandfather at the carnival!!!

Not a problem Rising Rainbow! I am just mechanically minded and love to work on the computer!! You have me thinking about making this photo available at "Equine Experience" in Paso Robles, CA!! When is the next horse carnival?

Janey Loree said...

Hi GateKeeper! I can't wait to see the painting either!!! To see my mother's artwork go to

I enjoy your virtual company, as well! The photo of your parents before WWII is movie picture(ish), too!!!
