Wild Ponies! (Lots and lots of pictures!)

Today I got the opportunity to go to a plateau in central Sardinia (a Mediterranean island) where they have a specific type of 'wild' pony. I'm sure they're actually feral, but they've been feral for centuries now. Meet the Giara horse! Sorry for the huge pictures! We saw 7 little herds and I got very close to 5 of them! (Though I wasn't as close as the pictures imply! My camera has super zoom!) I figured if anyone wanted to see my horsey pictures it would be you guys xD


It's breeding season guys!

This is the challenger.

And this is the stallion of this herd.




Somebody was not happy to be in the water.

This boy won my heart. He was flashy too. Three white socks and that blaze.


This baby was so beautiful and brave. All she did was snort at me and give me a weird look.


This was one of the two stallions running with the above filly's herd. He was a pretty boy too!

Good butt scratch!

This baby played shy the whole time.

Amazing pictures! I love just observing horse herds! Lots of fun!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane
