Mungerannie (Spunk) gets a little air time..

She’s the little orphan bush filly, who was never meant to survive, being an orphan with such a harsh beginning in life, nor the dreadful snake bite which would have killed most horses – as with the blood infection which followed…
She’s been a steadfast mate to me for 9 years, I have been blessed to have spent so much time with such an awesome horse…. she’s a tough nut that’s for sure, and as you can see in this photo, doesn’t let anything dim the fire that burns in her, she’s pure energy that one…

Taken with the 12mp DLSR Pentax k-x with the in-camera digital red filter applied
