...looked like the little pony went over to tell his Dad about me.

The story continues tomorrow...

***I wasn't sure where to file these images, the horse is of course a domesticated animal, but these Ponies are allowed to roam free over large areas of the hills of South Uist only contained by the cattle grids at road ends which keep them safe from roaming the highways of the islands.

Beautiful capture and that thick coat looks good to protect them from the cold winds that must buffet these islands. Moira

Dad, there's a strange man over there watching me.
You realise you could end up with a police caution for this??

Such charming animals, these two so nicely captured in this shot, the foal in sharp detail, Dad listening on at the side and slightly 'softer'.......a lovely composition, Dougie.
Were it mine I'd file it in my Uist - 2012 Event but drag it into possibly a variety of albums, always adding a notation as to which Event the original file is stored........anyway, that's the way I work but it might not suit all.

Good to hear this, because there are frightingly many highways on South Uist! Tongue
This sure is an image with huge Awwwwwwwww factor!
