When Kristen contacted me about photographing her and her beloved horse Alex, she had in mind that Alex was going in for surgery in a short time, and it was possible that he wouldn’t survive the surgery. Thankfully, he did make it! Because of his medical problems, he hadn’t been out of his stall much, so we had some challenges with excess energy – but Kristen did a great job of keeping him calm and focused.
One interesting thing I learned about Alex, he is part Appaloosa. For most of his life, he was a solid chestnut. In recent years, white spots have started to appear on his body!
