Wild Horses

The peonies have begun to open.
I shall be drying some for winter teas.
A few of the iris are open.
The wind shifted and is now a fresh breeze out of the north.
Temperatures have dropped into the low 50's.
It feels refreshing after highs in the 90's.

I am studying wild Horses.

The English Exmoor ponies are one of the ancient
wild Horses of Europe.

The Camargue are called the Horses of the Sea.

These French horses
 give grace and beauty to this harsh environment.

In the United States it is the wild Mustang

that needs our protection.

I hope I see Mustang when I travel west.

I am reading about the 

I am studying their 
elegant ways.

I am dreaming about the freedom to roam
in the wild places.


  1. Beautiful post - as always. I adore the mutual grooming photo, and all of the wild horses. So very interesting they are.

    I've missed visiting you. I'll get caught up soon, I hope. Enjoy the weekend! -Tammy

  2. What beautiful beasts. I too would love to see them roaming wild. Have a great weekend.

  3. Dear Sherry,

    I adore horses. My neighbour keeps horses on her land. One of them dances. Sometimes I watch him in the field, he is enchanting.

    The exmoor ponies are very precious. Sadly they are under threat as people are tiring of managing them. They still turn wild but obviously their health etc needs to be checked.
    There are a few that still keep the old ways, so hopefully they will be around for many many years.

  4. Hi Sherry, in a few weeks I will visit the Camargue and hope to see some of this wonderfull horses;-)) Than I will remember on this lovley post! Hugs from Luzia.
