It’s been a lovely spring day today, the sunshine was strong with sharp shadows and a biting wind was blowing. Max and his friends where having a playtime with lots of running about, bucking and general high spirits. They are getting ready to be turned out into the summer fields which for the last two years has happened the first week in April and they can sense its coming soon. These horses are very lucky that they can go out in the winter at all, most of the yards in this area keep them stabled for 6 months of the year. Ours can go out all day long but they do ruin the fields so some are saved for summer grass.
Thanks for your comments and fav’s, and have a great weekend everyone!!

Hi I have a passion for all things in nature, love photography and like to do some editing work in photoshop and other editing software. I love animals and have a special affection for horses so you will see lots of those in my portfolio. Birds are another of my passions. I hope you enjoy looking through my world. Thank you.
