Male Challenge

By Lillian  
These are two of the famous Hensen Horses found on the Somme in France
Hensen Horse a very interesting write up to read if interested
in a field of yellow and that is a orchid in front did not remove
but they were across a large lake
was over caste day....full of cloud

In France with Jenni and Bob last week we came upon these beautiful horses on a marsh
quite by accident we were watching the you do!! after that we went back each day to photograph,
there was only between 7 to 9 each time and sometimes a man watching over them...

Thank you for taking the time to comment and hope that you enjoy this one

I wonder if this was serious, or make-believe as a part of the learning process for later when the prize is the mating rights...or it would be if they were in the wild.
