Nina’s Filly

Last summer I was lucky enough to be introduced to one of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s herds of Konik ponies, who are busy doing conservation work by stuffing themselves silly on grass, rushes, and tree leaves. The material wasn’t right for If Wishes Were Ponies, but I hope to use it in future work. Meantimes, here’s one of the fillies, who snuck up on me to sniff my elbow. I like the way she’s posed here on a tussock like a miniature “Wild Stallion on the Outcrop”.
