My whole gang lined up along the fence near the barn and the colors and lines of their backs made such a pretty landscape I had to get this picture before they all headed back out to pasture. Front to back: Jack, Angel, Rock and Iris.

“Ponies” by Jeffrey Bullock

Somewhere out on the prairie
Is the greatest cowboy that’s ever been
And when he lays his hands upon the ponies
They shudder with an understanding skin

And he says ponies
Now ponies don’t you worry
I have not come to steal your fire away
I want to fly with you across the sunrise
Discover what begins each shining day

When the storm clouds in the west
Are quickly gathering
The ponies they run wild there
Before it rains

You’ll see their sleek dark bodies
Brightly gleaming
You know the fire is flying through
Their brains

And he says ponies
Now ponies don’t you worry
I have not come to steal your fire away
I want to fly with you across the sunrise
Discover what begins each shining day

    Awesome, that is so amazing!What a great photo opportunity! Just love the colors, itès rolling hills of dappled sunlight! Excellent composition!

  • Thank you Joanne! I have seen them lined up like this many times (anything happening on the other side of the fence gets them in queue like a bunch of curious kids) but I had to get some helpers last weekend to hold them there and space them a little bit before I sold the bay mare this weekend. I knew it would be my last opportunity to get all four together.

    that was very good of them, to stay while you got your camera! Lovely shot.

  • They often stand this way but not long enough to get their picture… I had a few ‘helpers’ to keep them spaced for me just long enough to photograph it. Thank you for your comment :0)

    This is an incredibly clever natural abstract, Dawne!!! Took me a few moments to understand what I was seeing, which means imho that this really works!!! Well done!

  • Thank you very much Krys :0)
