Description This baby miniature horse hails from Santa Ynez Valley, the horse breeder's Kentucky of the west and some of the finest thoroughbred horses (miniatures too) come from this area. Quicksilver Ranch and this baby horse in particular, were an inspiration for me to capture the adorable and awkward poses that silly little newborn minis get themselves into. Great shots, especially as a series , for the walls of a child's room or a local business in the Santa Ynez Valley.
