Wow, this week is the halfway point for my year commitment to posting a door a week on Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors! This year is just flying by!

While I was at the Rodeo last week-end hanging around the stables photographing competitions, and candid portraits I noticed the stable doors, so of course this week I’m sharing Stable Doors and a very shy horse.

N°1005 -I couldn’t get this horse to stick its head out the door for the life of me! I think I needed to have a carrot or sugar cube instead of a camera.

I do love the bits and pieces hanging from the opened half of the door.

…and this blond beauty at N°1002 wasn’t shy about poking its head, and nose out to find out what the heck all the clicking was about. 🙂

More to come…



  1. Like they say, blonds have more fun! Like the expression you caught on that horse’s face. The stable doors seem to have different height openings which I was not aware of before; hope they don’t put a short horse in a stable with a high door opening or that might be awkward. Thanks for sharing the rodeo with us.

  2. Love horses and rodeos, so I enjoyed these, Deborah. As for the good wishes for my trip, I’ll flaunt quite a lot of my small amount of French to say, “Merci beaucoup!” 🙂


  3. Couldn’t figure out, but now I guess you were commenting to Janet, …tu vas faire… can’t even remember which tense that is, but I do know that your French is much more advanced than my first grade’s!

    • 🙂 Yes, commenting to Janet under your comment to her.
      I read it far better than I speak or comprehend what is being said to me. Tu va faire- immediate future I think for “You are going”

  4. I love all of the pictures! Very Western and rustic Deborah!

  5. Love these photos, Deborah! 🙂 Is there a stable near you? I like the blonde beauty at the end who didn’t want to miss out on a photo opportunity! Lol!

  6. Excellent photos. The last one is a gem!

  7. Such a cute door,a Deborah. Love the last one. This could be in a magazine!

  8. Great photos, Deborah. Good action shots on the cowboy, too. The door on 1022, look like someone was hungry 🙂

    • I hit post before saying that I’m glad you joined us. I hope we can keep you beyond your commitment.

    • Thank you Dan! I think they might always be hungry like my Diva Dog. 🙂

      I may not post a door every week next year, but I won’t completely disappear either. I’m addicted to doors. 🙂

  9. Some great shots in this collection. I guess some horses are just harder to coax out than others.
    Half a year really has flown past hasn’t it? It has been fun though.

  10. Stables, cowboys and horses this week – great photos, Deborah.

  11. This is wonderful, Deborah. One of my favorites in this series. Bravo!

  12. I’m a rider – I love stable doors!

  13. The wood tones of this barn are gorgeous, aren’t they? The second photo is so expressive I just love it.

  14. Very nice series. I quite like the first one…(Suzanne)

  15. Mr. Ed?

  16. I love this week’s photo Deborah! I am glad you got one of the horses to show their face. It made a beautiful photo 😀
