This session was like a dream…seriously. It was pretty surreal watching Ali and Kosta walk around the field hand in hand with horses in tow all while having another horse stand right at my back like a big puppy dog. He kept brushing up against me, pushing me with his head so I would pet him, and sniffing around for any snacks – ha.
I had the most fun getting to know Ali and Kosta and seeing their love for animals. They both attended and met while at UGA. Kosta played football and Ali was on the equestrian team and so some fellow athlete friends decided to set them up. After watching them interact together during their session, it was easy to see why their friends thought they would make a great match. They are both so easy going, fun loving, and obviously passionate about animals. I loved spending time at both Sweet Olive Farm and the UGA Equestrian training facility.
Thanks Ali and Kosta for a very memorable night!
As if on cue, this donkey straight up smiled for the camera.
When we first walked into this field, I had no idea what to expect. I just saw a bunch of skittish horses that appeared to be acting rather than territorial. But then I watched Ali calmly approach them and they did the same in return – it was amazing to watch!
There were plenty of moments like this as well where it was clear who wanted their turn in front of the camera.
