Last weekend the sun shone on the tiny village of Lier in the county of Buskerud, in the country of Norway. Something it has not done for a while.
However, the choice of its timing was perfect, as it was the weekend of the annual village fete, show, do, get-together, or whatever, all rolled into one.
I was there, together with my trusty equipment and my trusty Official Guardian of said equipment, one mrs. salty.
I was looking for detail rather than the big overview, and here is the first offering.
This young filly attracted my attention because she was giggling like I don't know what, being tickled by the larger filly's tongue. As I turned towards the sound of the pre-nubile laughter, I raised my camera and just about caught the moment as Little Miss Giggle-chops was turning away.
This is the whole shot, it is not cropped.

The larger of the two fillies showed very little or no emotion.

Many thanks for all the recent comments on my efforts...you may rest assured that they are all appreciated.

Many thanks for bothering.

Malc

Aw, how lovely. Horses can be so gentle and their noses are soft as cotton wool. The little girl is obviously loving the contact. Super shot.

Sunny but you've caught the reins well. Who nose how well this cut do, such a strong bit of the whole picture. Could have been a right mare getting the timing right.

I read a lot of them, and they all love to describe the weather. Joe Nesbo, Henning Mankell and Arnaldur Indridason, Camilla Lackberg along with the late Steig Larsson are all authors whose every translated book Ive read. Just love the style.
