Our western landscape photo contest was such a hit, that we've decided to hold another contest this fall.
The subject: something that's near and dear to so many people's hearts: horses.
It could be your horse, a neighbor's horse, a horse (or two or more) that you saw on trip, and it can be from anywhere, really. We're looking for a shot that inspires, wows, makes us laugh, makes us smile, or plain just makes us stare at it for five minutes straight.
No people in the pictures, please. This is all about horses.
If you win, you get your picture published on this here blog and on Facebook. And you win a shirt (valued at $50 or less) from AJ's Western Wear. Sound good?
Here's the 411: Be sure to read all the rules, terms, and conditions!
