They do not look angry, Ginnie. smile
Ginnie Hart: Not only not angry, Ray, they didn't care a hoot that we were trying to get past them!
... wouldn't drag me away...
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, sometimes wild horses DO drag you away, Larry. These are normally down by the river's edge and not out on the road. This was a first for us.
Une bien belle rencontre.
Ginnie Hart: Because they are wild, it took Astrid a long time before she was willing to pass them, Martine. But eventually they did give way.
What a great shot! And a perfect sentiment!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Elizabeth.

That came kind of an surprise when we "bumped" into them.....I never trust them for they are wild and were with little ones. Great picture, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You did take your time to move through them, Astrid, which I applaud. Well done, I might add. Bedankt.
Ils sont heureux ceux-là , pas de barrière, la nature est à  eux.
J'aime cette photo. Merci Ginnie et bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: They definitely acted like they owned the place, Pascale. smile Merci.

They are having a lovely life from the look of things
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Chris. I'm not sure why they moved away from the river's edge, where we always used to see them. But there they were and we had to patiently wait for them to cross the road!
Prendre son temps parfois fait du bien ..., belle prise de vue
Ginnie Hart: It's a good lesson, Claudine, isn't it! Merci.

Oh, wild horses in Nederland -I never saw before - and a new word in your title to me I cannt translate.
Ginnie Hart: We rarely see wild horses like this, Philine, so Astrid paid attention while waiting for them to cross the road. Lackadaisical = lacking enthusiasm and determination; carelessly lazy. It's a fun word to use. It was a lackadaisical kind of day. smile

Some are showing their distain for having their photo taken - presumably without permission smile Our New Forest National Park has ponies wandering free and plenty of donkeys, too.
Ginnie Hart: Astrid was really taking precaution, Alan, because of the foals. Didn't want a raging mama coming after us! HA! This did have an English feel to it, btw. smile

I like the subtle colour use Ginnie, it seems to make this a really peaceful scene.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Chad. I think it looked a bit different on my old laptop but I'll get used to that, I guess?

Presumably they come up to the roads sometimes, as they couldn't care less that you are there
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Lisl, even though this was our first time to see them so far inland from the big river nearby. I was glad Astrid had her wits about her. smile
They couldn't care less.

I am becoming increasingly indifferent to the fiasco going on in our parliament.
Ginnie Hart: We've been watching it over here, Bill, and even without understanding all the implications, we feel like throwing up our hands, too! Don't even get me started on what's happening in the USA!

les maîtres de la route

Ginnie Hart: In this case, YES!
the baby one looks like a llama or something... the rest are mooning you lol looks like when you walk behind slow people at the mall at Christmas time smile beautiful shot!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I actually had some closeups on their mooning, Elaine, but their tails were so gross (need I say why?), I had to opt for this distance shot. Thanks.
Een echt rustgevende foto van deze wilde paarden.
Goed weekend en groetjes aan A. en schiet zij al op ??
Ginnie Hart: Calm, cool and collected, Marjolein, even though we didn't know what they might do, especially with the foals nearby. Bedankt. I snapped this a month ago when son Mark was with us.

Wild horses in a landscape. Quite un-Dutch, but still a great picture.
Ginnie Hart: Every time we go to Loevestein castle, Louis, these wild horses are there, but usually down by the river's edge. This time they surprised us! Thanks.

Born to be free.
Ginnie Hart: Clearly so, Andy!
It is sometimes the most important thing in the world. You have nailed lazy and indifferent.
Ginnie Hart: BINGO, Mary...and thank you.
I can imagine Astrid would have been very careful driving past these lovely animals.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Brian. She had visions of angry mamas attacking her! grin

Cute caption to accompany this shot! I hope Friday is more relaxing than yesterday was. Have a fantabulous weekend, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks and thanks, Steven!
It's good they're indifferent... Angry would be bad... grin
Ginnie Hart: You've made a good point, Sudipto!
I love seeing animals in freedom!
Ginnie Hart: Then you would have certainly loved these, Ruthie!
Are they part of a larger group, Ginnie, or just a family on their own? Astrid was wise to be careful.
Ginnie Hart: I really don't know, Beverly. We see them every time we're there but I have no idea how many there are altogether!
it's a great day when you can capture wild horses with your lens Ginnie... they don't seem to be starving....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Foot-loose and fancy free, Peter. What more could they ever want!

Lucky day (hope you weren't trying to make a train!) I've never seen wild horses in person. Love this.
Ginnie Hart: HA! No train to meet but we DID want to get to the castle! It was a first time to see these wild horses on the road. We've always seen them running around down at the river's edge. Thanks, Bonnie.
Lovely tones Ginnie. A beautiful capture of horses in freedom
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. The only sad thing about these horses (which you could see better in my close-up images) was how matted their tails were with poop. It almost made me vomit. I had never seen that. To be honest, I still don't understand it because I thought all horses, tame or wild, could hold their tails up? Or was it something else? They all had it.
