Artist's Description

You saw me sitting so serene,
in a lovely meadow a sight unseen
but when you drew beside my form,
I sensed the light did suddenly dawn,
I was not sight gifted at my birth,
still I treasure my days on earth
such a beautiful ponyyou said of me,
when you saw me sitting neath the tree
then pity sounded in your voice
as you realised that by no choice
I could not see Gods lovely gift
though my face I would uplift
to feel the sun’s warm radiant glow
and I smell the grass which is below,
was I only beautiful if I had my sight,
for the many blind it is their plight
please don’t feel sad about my eyes
one day you will come to realise
that beauty is not only for a sighted foal
it comes from deep within our soul

Taken with my canon 40DSLR using a standard lens 17-55mm
I was thrilled to find this beautiful pony sitting in a paddock enjoying the sun. I rushed to take some shots of him, then as I got close I realised he was blind. My whole feelings changed in an instant and I couldn’t help feeling sorry for this beautiful animal. He had been badly abused by his biurth owner and kiced in the head by other horses. The man who now owns Ali said that the RSPCA (Animal cruelty body in Australia) said he had to be put down, but he took him, fed him and loved him. He was given a safe paddock to feed and rest in. This lovely farmer has alsop recently rescued another horse which is not i n very good health. Only time will tell wether that one survives. Thanks for visiting.
Taken with my Kodak z8612IS on a 5x zoom auto setting. I have edited out a barb wire fence which cut accross the pony’s face in two places in photoshop. Thanks for visiting,
