My neighbour's horses casting shadows on the water. He had a lot of bad luck recently - Beauty, the brown mare had a lovely foul but it was kicked to death when just a day old and his beautiful young Arab stallion died of a heart attack - all in one week !!
Thank you so much for your votes and comments on the bird yesterday - and especially to Paul [ Skeet1Away] for his treasured UA - I really appreciate it Smile
Have a great day !!

Morning Herman, a lovely warm evening last night with a braai on the patio. Nice hot day forecast.
Great image of the horses, sad story though.

That's a lot of distress for your neighbour to have had to cope with, Herman.
I like the grouping here, all the animals watching you too, and the Saturday theme is well served with this shot.
