8/31/10, N. of Monte Vista, CO - Life has interesting twists, and today was definitely no exception.
I began photographing some of Bruce Hornig’s beautiful Brabant style Belgians. These are all horses imported from Belgium. Even though the Brabant Belgian was the original breeding stock for the modern American Belgian, you would hardly think they are the same breed. The Brabants are all basically roans and are definitely ‘old style’ (a heavy horse that is more compact, with shorter legs and a heavy body). All of Bruce’s Brabants are strawberry roans. He has four here in the valley, and two in Ft, Collins, with his daughter Katelyn.
