Golden Retriever Puppies

A lovely commission - I shall be taking photographs of these six puppies (all male) during the first eight weeks of their life so that when they are weaned and transfer to their new home, there is a photographic record of those early days to go with them.    Erin often feeds them at the same time and once the puppies have full tummies they continue to lie, often where they fed, in a row, looking like uncooked sausage rolls!   Actually, they are gorgeous..............

Deer at Woburn Abbey Park

I was at the Sculpture Gallery in Woburn Abbey Park today and although it wasn't possible to stop and take photographs of the Deer on the way in, I did 'snatch' a few on the way out, through a car window.    The rutting season is now and although here there aren't any photographs of the stags with moss or leaf mould on their antlers, that was seen earlier.

The only jockey I recognised.............


Jockeys

It was exciting being that close to the action in the parade ring and seeing the expressions on the faces of jockeys in anticipation of another race.   One has to wonder what they were thinking..........


After the Race...

Some win and it brings a smile to faces, but not that many...........

Now for some Racing

Sad about the delay, but here are some images of horses being prepared to race and some racing too.

There seems to be a wide range of reasons for going to Newmarket Races on Race Day and perhaps some of these images add to the scene setting.   It won't be long before some photographs appear of personalities, horses and their entourages...........
