Such beauties! I've always loved looking at horses. They seemed to be very gentle creatures. Unfortunately, there aren't many horses in my part of the world.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you. Just had a look at your blog and you have beautiful shots.
Beautiful image. It's interesting how little of a fence there is...
Mary MacADNski: As long as it is electrified, a single strand of wire is sufficient.
Very graceful aren't they ! I love this with the flowers!
Mary MacADNski: June wild flowers are very beautiful. I did a short series in the summer.
I love the pinto hoofing on the ground Mary... he has such flowing lines from his tail to hit mane....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I think she must be rubbing her eye.

These lovely nags have serious competition from the meadow flowers, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: For me, the flowers are prettier.

Lovely Mary...the grass is definitely greener on the other side of the fence!!
Mary MacADNski: That grass needs to be horse mown.

They have eaten virtually everything
Mary MacADNski: We had a drought and pastures couldn't grow fast enough. Horses were forced to eat hay this summer, unbelievably.

I like the way the owner has protected the flower meadows until seed is set, Mary. The horses are lovely
Mary MacADNski: The flowers are the best part here, I think.
A lovely summery picture which is a treat for the eyes. I love the way you've captured that tail flick.
Mary MacADNski: The horse was very cooperative.
nice hommage today
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Chantal. I could have called this homage to wild flowers.
The one on the right looks full of the joy of life Mary
Mary MacADNski: Or just scratching it's eye.
A beautiful shot of the horses and with all the wild flowers in bloom!
Mary MacADNski: A lovely June wildflower scene.
A fine healthy looking pair full of the joys of spring. Time to be moved on soon by the look of it. Lovely shot Mary
Mary MacADNski: Yes. They have a huge pasture but we had a drought this summer. Horses were even having to eat dried hay to replace grass that was not growing fast enough.

You can certainly see the field that they have "mown". Do they move them to an adjacent field when all the edible matter has gone?

the horse on the right looks like it is paying homage to something else! Pretty field too smile
Mary MacADNski: Or scratching his nose. (grin)
I apologise Mary, I missed commenting on yesterdays image, so I will tell you I love seeing pictures of horses where they can run at least a little freely.
Mary MacADNski: These have plenty of room too but we had drought last year.
idyllic place for horses & fr all of us thanks to your images!
Mary MacADNski: Harness racing is a popular sport here so there are plenty of race horses though the ones I show are usually family pets, like these two.

The horse on the right shows a some extrovert movement -a fine summer image!
Mary MacADNski: Or simply an itchy nose or a fancy dancer.
Fantastic capture, Mary. Yes, the horse on the right looks as if it is getting ready to perform.
Mary MacADNski: A fancy dancer.
A wonderful life for a horse in those surroundings!
Mary MacADNski: It is good horse country here.
Lovely flowers in the foreground - I wonder why the horses can't be given more room though I guess your picture tells only half the story!
Mary MacADNski: These horses have plenty of room but we had a terrific drought the past summer. Grass didn't grow much and horses had to be fed hay - unheard of ever before here. It is very true what you say because a photo does only tell half the story.
Wonderful Mary. They are offering you a ballet!
Mary MacADNski: I like your imagination.
Very nice with the inclusion of the meadow flowers, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I love wild flowers.
