If you didn’t know I have a long history with the Dumb Friends League here in Denver. For 15 years I was their resident Network Engineer, Systems Administrator and all around “computer guy”. It wasn’t until my photography business started taking over too much of my time – and my growing love of weddings didn’t allow me to be on call 24/7 anymore, that I parted company with the League in 2008 – at least as a paid employee. Seems I still get back there a few times a year to donate my time and talent, but instead of networks, computers and wires, it’s photography that brings me back to them.
I had the pleasure earlier this year of visiting the new Harmony Equine Center and meeting a few of the horses and the dedicated staff and volunteers that take care of and rehabilitate them. The Center is setup to receive and care for equines (horses, ponies, donkeys, and mules) that are removed from their owners by law enforcement authorities over issues of abuse and neglect.
On Saturday June 16th from 10am to 3pm the center will be hosting an open house and adoption day. Take a guided tour, have some refreshments, and see first hand the difference this center will be making in Colorado for the care of abused and neglected horses.
Here’s a few of my favorite shots from my visit down there.
