Thank you for visiting my RedBubble Site, most of my work is dedicated to the Semi-Wild Konik horses who live in the Netherlands. I ran into them the other day and discovered the beauty, pureness and instinctive drive of this population.

I hope you enjoy my work and stick around to view some more.

    What a dramatic photo………and the explanation is fantastic! I’ve always loved horses. When I was a young girl, I begged my mother for a horse. Her reply was, “Where are we going to keep it? Under the bed?” So I never had the chance to enjoy these beautiful animals.
