The Herd by KonikPolski The Herd by KonikPolski
A big part of the entire herd in one photo. I believe severel different social groups are in the photo. They were really close together. Probably because they were a bit aprehensive about the people approaching them. They dont get a lot of human visits there. They dispersed again when they decided we werent a threat.

The weather was still pretty bad when we arrived and this one of the first photos I took. I like it though. Mainly because almost all horses in the photo are turned towards the camera. And you can see the city across the lake. Its a long lake and this side of it is actually very quiet in contrast to the buisy city on the other side.

Mag ik vragen waar deze foto genomen is? Volgensmij ben ik er wel eens geweest, ook met zo'n kudde konikpaarden.

Maybe she's had enough of carrying all that extra weight with her and of eating for two. :)

Thank you. :) They arent mustangs. They are Konik horses and officially are a Polish breed. This was shot in Latvia. The Konik is the result of a breeding project, trying to breed back the European Wild Horse. The Konik is as close as they got and the breed is often used for grazing purposes in nature reserves in Europe.

Beautiful horses :) You can really see the colour differences when they're grouped together like this.
