September 26th – Walking

We went for a lovely walk in the New Forest today. It is great to get out in the fresh air and take in our beautiful countryside.

We were scheduled to visit the Brecon Beacons this weekend, but alas, Covid-19 put an end to that, so we took a little drive to Hampshire. It is lovely to see animals grazing freely in open countryside. Today’s photo is of one of the many ponies we came across.

The New Forest pony is one of the recognised mountain and moorland or native pony breeds of the British Isles. Height varies from around 12 to 14.2 hands; ponies of all heights should be strong, workmanlike, and of a good riding type. They are valued for hardiness, strength, and sure-footedness. Scientific name: Equus caballus
