As a photographer I have been part of so many lives and have told many a story through my images. Stories mainly of happy times, new beginnings and milestones. Some of these stories are emotional … but none more so that the story of Emily and Scooby the horse.
An emotional call from Emily, the stable manager at Dunston Hole Farm where our studio is located resulted in dropping everything and capturing a memory never to be relived. Her own horse, Scooby, has been suffering terrible pain in his legs and Emily had to take the painful decision to have him put to sleep.
On Sunday I spent a glorious couple of hours sharing a very special time on what was to be their last evening together. As Emily said her goodbyes and spoken gently to Scooby I respectfully captured their evening together.
The video below shows just a few of those lovely moments…
