Thread: Pembrokeshire 'wild' ponies

  1. #1

    Pembrokeshire 'wild' ponies

    These guys are supposed to be wild - ha! There were about six of them on the Pembrokeshire coast path today near St Davids, West Wales. Two of them were doing a double act - one attracted me with a look from the soft eyes and nudged me in the side, while the othe came up from behind and tried to get the apple from my new rucsac. The park authorities put them out on the path to talk to (rob) the tourists.

    C&C welcome, but don't ask about the apple.

    #1 What's a nice boy like you doing here, Rob?

    These wee fellas are certainly much easier to approach than the wild horses that live around the Desert road in NZ. A cute selection, Rob.

    Now....tell us about the apple.

    Innuendo from the ladies, I'm impressed.

    All great photos, Rob. Is the gray fellow lame? His right front looks pretty crooked. Might just be the way he decided to stand and pose. Great angle for the mutual grooming!

    No, I don't think he was lame, he seemed to be walking OK. I think the park people look after them anyway. Just a few minutes from here was a field full of them grazing. I think they just let a few out at a time to onto the cliff path. They really are very friendly. The tan coloured one just walked up to me and started nuzzling me, while the white one (unknow to me until my wife pointed it out) came up behind me and started going through my rucsac.

    I think the grooming shot is a very nice capture. The sharpness is amazing - even for the pink Panasonic G1. Here's a screen-grab close-up of it. It was taken at 1/640s, so I guess it's right what they say about getting a fast exposure to get a sharp image. They were moving quite a bit when I took it too.
