If someone asks for help, I will always do my best.
That is how it works up here.
Some Shetland ponies needed to be moved to new grazing.
While everyone else did the walking, leading and working, I was on the camera end.
Shetland ponies know when you are photographing them!
“Strike a pose!”
We worked hard, mending electric fences, leading ponies to new fields and generally probably getting in the way (my speciality).
In Britain, we call these “Witches’ Knots”. In Norway, they are called “Trollknut”, or I suppose Troll Knots. I find them fascinating to photograph, making the Shetland pony seem even more ancient and at home in their natural environment.
Luckily, they are easy to remove with the right amount of hair conditioner spray.
After a long day I was glad to come home to bring in the new year.
I am extremely grateful to everyone who has enjoyed and supported this blog through the good days and the bad ones. I hope 2017 brings many more adventures for me to blog about and let you follow.
May everyone have a safe and happy new year with best wishes for 2017!
