Wild Ponies

I'm sitting by the fire keeping warm on this cold snowy day, while looking through old photos. How about a couple of wild ponies from Assateague Island National Seashore?

Click on the photos to enlarge.

Terri Farley wrote: "Since humans first huddled around campfires, stories have been told of wild horses with wind in their manes, fire in their eyes and freedom in their hearts. Those horses eluded capture, and scorned the comforts of civilization"

And they don't seem to mind posing for the tourists.

Happy New Year!


 The 2018 Creature of the Year award goes to this great egret featured in my August 26th blog. Congratulations elegant egret! Click to enlarge. Click the date for the blog.
 
In the event that the egret is unable to fulfill its duties, these runner up squirrels from my Arpil 8th blog -- pictured here reacting to the announcement -- will step in. Happy New Year and good wishes to all for 2019.
