Moorland ponies

Moorland ponies

Lovely to meet these three ponies during a walk on Darwen moors. One was bold, eager to meet two passing strangers and find out what we had to offer – ideally food but failing that, affection. The second was patiently waiting to see how things turned out, and the little one was poised to run even further away. The bold one took all we had – just pats, compliments and a few other whispered words!

    You’re right, quiet affection goes a long way – there are few of us that have our fill of that! I suppose all we can do is resolve to give out more affection, then there’ll be more to go round!

    Yes – nothing ventured, nothing gained! I don’t know if it’s just my imagination, but the middle one seems to have a heart shaped nose.
