Cutie-pies :)

in the "separating ring"

my horses have the most ridiculous manes *sigh*

wow, i really need to fix my toes ! I look really bad on that shot

Getting our part home

Pace and canter

Tölt and canter

Wow Sis, thanks so much for posting them and for remembering your camera Once again the scenery is breath taking. Stina and Asi are gorgous even if Stina rubbed off part of her mane. At least half of it still looks good :roll:
Do they get to come home now?

well, some er broke and ridable, some are not and are kinda "semi-wild"
here, horses are put up in huge pastures during the summer/fall/beginning of winter, and those whom are to be ridden, are taken in around newyears. Others and young ones (under 4) are outside all year long, with little human contact.
We were just herding them from one huge pasture to another closer to people, here :)
Kiki- I hear ya ! i was on the brink of hypothermia at one time, had been out pretty much not moving for 2-3 hours, in -X°c
