Yesterday morning on the way to buy my husband's newspapers,I drove past the Police horse stables situated behind our new Cape Town stadium. For a change the horses were there and not out on patrol. As scared as I am of horses I managed to capture a few images of them. This horse in particular was full of energy and directly after this roll went on to bite all the other horses in their necks. Have a nice Easter Friday everyone.

This was worth waiting for Colleen, nice moment you captured there................ if I was a lady horse and he came round biting my neck I really wouldn't mind, he's a handsome fella.

Fingers crossed, no snow again today [so far] and............ I can see bits of my road, the local farmer has been round to shift some of the snow.
