I visited Fergal's stables on Saturday afternoon. At home it was dry, but by the time I arrived the heavens had opened, so I decided to photograph the horses and ponies in the stables while I waited for the rain to stop. Bow, who I met last time, was finishing box rest.
Khyser had a helpful nameplate on his stable door.
This one was enjoying lunch.
Honey was having a walk in the rain.
I met an adorable little pony called Banjo.
Red was very relaxed.
Red's next door neighbours (no pun intended).
Joe was about to be tacked up.
The yard cats made an appearance.
Finally the rain seemed to have eased off and so I made for the fields. On the way I took this picture of Max and his proud owner.
This horse was grazing next to the lane.
I walked across a field and met some horses on the other side of the fence.
These two seemed to be the best of friends and were very sweet.
At last I was at Fergal's field. Conker was waiting at the gate.
This horse was munching happily.
Fergal was handsome as usual.
While I was photographing Fergal, the other horses in the herd demanded attention.
I had a very enjoyable visit, even with the rain. A huge thank you to the horses and ponies for being such good sports.
