Northern Indiana Photographer: Cowgirls, a Cowboy, and a Dumb Chicken

I finally got around to taking some pictures of the kids in their cowboy/cowgirl gear.  I decided to include Ashleigh because I figured my kids would be more willing to participate and then I could also get some pics of them together.  Kimberly thought it would be fun so I had her come along and I am glad I did, there is no way my kids wouldn’t have let mom take so many pictures.

The cowboy pics I took a week or so ago.  Last night we were at the horse show, then went riding, then they had been playing with the chickens for at least a good hour or so.  I decided to grab my camera and snap some pictures and by the time I went out there with the camera they were sweating and looked like this….

You have to meet Brandon’s chicken.  He calls it “Dumber Chicken”.  Trust me this name is not unusual at our house.  We have a cat named “Kitty Doe Doe”, and a horse named “White Horse”


Here he was showing me how it did gymnastics or something. chickens-aug2009_14


I am a horse person, not a chicken person.  This chicken thing is Bob’s deal (he won grand champion chicken at the Starke County 4-H Fair when he was little).  However, I am glad we have them.  They are teaching my kids alot of life lessons and great memories are being made at the chicken palace that Bob built.  Once again, I encourage you parents to grab your cameras and snap some pictures of your kids.  The weather is great right now, no excuses just do it!
