I miss my standard black Shetland pony girls (we used to breed them in the dim and distant).
Happily, I would spend many hours photographing my beautiful ladies in their fields – they were always very photogenic and obliging.
But backs (my spine, mostly) misbehave, the market dropped like a stone, Shetland pony politics, life moves on resulting in the majority of the Thordale Shetland Pony Stud was sold.
Anywho, today I missed my girls. I missed taking photos of them and, presented with an endless supply of beautiful black standard Shetland pony mares from Bergli Stud, I happily snapped away
I hope you like the photos. Yes, there is a sea of mud but, at the moment we are all living like this. There are no exceptions. Until the mud dries up and goes away, we are all in the same boat.
