Pony Portrait


Last week I shared some photos of the cows along the road I cycled and further along I had to stop to see the pony.  It was a very shy creature and the small Shetland pony in the background (photo below) would not venture near me at all. I'm only guessing, as I don't know the folks who own this place, but I think they might rescue abused ponies, judging by the animals I've noticed

You can see this pony has its ears pinned back in wariness and possible anxiety at my presence/camera!! So i did not want to upset him further and hopped on my bike!


Linking with Eileen for Saturday Critters HERE

Best wishes!

  8. Lovely shots. Horses and ponies have such diverse personalities. If you suspect that this is a rescue, then it makes perfect sense that they would be abnormally shy. Enjoy your weekend Christine,

  9. Wonderful photo. I really hate to think of animals being abused. I have a friend who rescued an abused dog. When he first got it that poor dog cowered and hid from everyone. But, two years down the road and it's the cutest, friendliest dog. It just needed some love.

  12. What a beautiful looking horse. There is no excuse for animal abuse, it saddens me and makes me mad. Whatever this horse's story is, it looks like it has found a nice home.
