I could only see Micheala’s senior pics as well by scrolling through the album. I totally agree with what has been said, but want to add something that I mentioned in another thread too. When taking pictures of horses be very mindful of your focal length if you aren’t taking pictures of them on the side, and especially if you are taking pictures of them standing at an angle to you.

Anything shorter than 80mm is really too short to take a picture of a horse with. The reason I say this is because you need the compressed background. Their bodies are so long that when you look at a horse that’s had it’s pic taken with a 35 or a 50 (not as bad with the 50 but still kind of noticeable) their heads are too big for their butts. Same idea as why you don’t really want to take pics of a person with a big nose using a 35mm.
