We were there to photograph horses, and these photogenic characters were playful and full of life

The weather was dreadful, poured with rain and i got soaked, but i loved every minute in the paddock with these gentle giants.

    Quite the mover in the rain:) Great shot:)

  • :) it seemed to spur him on if anything ! He walked out the stables cool as a cucumber, came and said “Hi” to me, had a nice roll, and PoW the action started
