In part one of this series, Mia and her horse Pickens were the stars. But after Pickens decided he was done being a model, we pulled out of Mia’s first ever horse. Leo is now owned by another woman at the barn which made it easy to do a portrait session of Mia all grown up and the horse she used to do the little bitty jumps on. Leo is a funny character. He used to be a racehorse, which is something most of us find hard to believe. Leo likes to go as s l o w l y as possible, all the time. And his version of being “wild” is a tiny hop in the air and then he breaks into what would be a normal canter for most horses. But this quirky personality is why everyone at the barn loves this gentle chestnut gelding.
