2013 Photo Editing


The photo upload date of this says July 28, 2013.  When I wanted to make a nice front page for this blog . . . but only had Paint as a photo editing option.  This is made of numerous photos cut out with the eraser tool and pasted together.  It was very hard to do.  There are no transparent backgrounds or layers, so the instant you de-select an object it becomes impossible to move.  Needless to say, it now looks very fake.  It was the front page of my blog for about 6 months.  This picture’s one redeeming factor is picture of Friendly, a Khaki Campbell duck on the right (a rare photo of her).

Miniature Horse Drawing (Later Today)!


(Photo used with permission.)

I’m going to make another drawing today, this time of Katie, a cute and furry Miniature Horse mare from The Katie Chronicles (The Katie Chronicles link).  <  I know the name on the URL looks kind of weird, but it’s actually just the name of a Miniature Horse.  The name of my web page also doesn’t match its title (Hooves and Claws).  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to call the blog when I made it, so I chose “hensandhippology.”  It’s a mix of several words: “hens” because I love chickens and own a bunch of hens, “and,” and “hippology,” which is just a technical name for “study of the horse” because I like learning horse facts!”  Anyways, watch for a drawing inspired by Katie later today!

Clever Ponies

Over the gate

Across the floor

Around a tack trunk

Out the door

Undoing the latch

-it’s really thick

Scraping with a hoof

That did the trick

Kicking open the door-

Without getting smashed

There- in the middle

A pan of hot mash

Jump up on the floor

Little hooves flying

They got into the feed room

Without hardly trying!

Manes frosted with hay

Noses deep in the grain

These clever ponies

Will try this again!

You can visit Katie’s blog for directions or read them below.

 

 

Award Details:

If you have won the Katie Award, the requirements are small, like Katie herself.  You must display your award on your page.

You must then give out the Katie Award to five creative blogs of your choice.  But Katie won’t be checking on you (she is too busy eating), so if you give it out to 1 or 6 or 25, that is OK.   Be sure to post in their comments to let them know they won and link to the award description in your post so they know they won and can pick up their prestigious award!
