Setley Pond

Number of views as of 9th April 2014 = 760.

A New Forest pony enjoying some fresh, green shoots at Setley Pond in the New Forest (Hampshire, England) between the towns of Brockenhurst and Sway.

Originally a royal hunting park, the New Forest was created by King William the First in 1079, so it isn’t really new at all. In 2005 however, it became England’s 8th National Park.

Roughly 90 per cent of the 225 square miles of Forest land is still owned by the crown, but is managed by the Forestry Commission.

Occupiers of land in the New Forest are granted commoner’s rights allowing their ponies, donkeys and cattle to roam & graze freely on the open heathland and some woodland areas.

The New Forest Pony is one of the indigenous horse breeds of the British Isles, and is one of the New Forest’s most famous attractions.

Date: 3rd May 2010.

Hello and thankyou for visiting my portfolio.

The name RedHillDigital comes from the area where I live (Redhill, in the town of Bournemouth, in the county of Dorset on the South Coast of England), plus my interest in Digital photography.

My real name is Howard and I’m always pleased to receive feedback on my work.
