If you want to be more in touch with the nature, enjoy some relaxing time with a horse. It is very rewarding, especially for a horse addict like me. I have been dreaming about horses long time. Finally I found the time to change this dream into reality. Me, my kids, my mum and my friend traveled to the Irish National Stud and Gardens in Tully, County Kildare last weekend.
There is so much that I would love to write about this place. Today I will start with a little story about one very young horse, probably still foal. Later on I will write more posts about other horses from this amazing place and also about Japanese gardens with beautiful photos of flowers, trees and everything I saw there including one water lily. I believe some of you would like to know how my hunt for water lilies started and why I desire to capture them with my camera, so keep an eye on future posts on my blog.
Here he is, little boy, approaching, curious as to who I am and probably want to see if I have anything tasty for him to eat.
It took him while to come closer. You can see picture of his mum in the middle. I offered him few leaves on my hand. It must look a little bit weird to him, because I was holding camera in my other hand. Moreover I was trying to take pictures of him and hiding my face behind the camera.
He got use to my scary Canon 760d very quickly and we enjoyed the touching and taking pictures together. His nose is amazing and soft. He was very gentle and did not try to bite.
I was trying to take picture of his whole body and in order to do that I put my head between the fences. It was probably very interesting thing to do, because he started to copy me. He must be very intelligent. I asked him to pose for me and look at that! What a lovely picture of him I got!
I don’t know how he did it. But he managed to take one pictures of me. Look at the reflection in his eye, yeah that’s me. Wonderful horse!
I have done few cropping, just to enjoy this photo in different ways. Which one you like the most?
