Horses wild at heart

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Horses are among the most beautiful animals. I walked in the village the other day (or actually a couple of weeks ago), and I looked at grass growing and fields turning green. And I admired a couple of horses on a pasture. Suddenly I realized that part of the fence was destroyed. So did the horses, and suddenly they were loose. Running through the landscap at full speed. I run to the nearest farm. The wrong one. But a girl there run to the right one, and the owner went after the two horses. I hope she succeeded and all went well. Even with the field. Here is a link to more photos of horses.

    1. That is a nice remark, Yoshizen. Thank you. I forgot to mention these are taken with my quite new Olympus OM-D E-M10, that is a small and mirrorless camera. It is not bad, but not used to it yet. Very handy size.

      1. In that case, Olympus may appreciate for their
        catalog sample.
        (In fact I’m also considering those mirrorless camera,
        or even a compact camera from Panasonic.)

      2. My plan: so small it will always be there. I hope it works. They say mirrorless is very good, but of course not the same control as with a DSLR.

  1. Wonderful photos Bente. I particularly like the last one close up. It must have been horrible to see them escape. Let’s hope they found their way home again.

    1. Yes, horrible, the same feeling as when my dog have escaped (in his young age). And at the same time nice to see they ad a good time. Mixed feelings.Thanks, Draco.

  2. Beautiful shots of the horses running free. I agree with Nancy, there’s something spiritual about that movement of horses in flight.

  3. Thanks for coming over to my blog and liking some posts 😉 These pictures are so great, Bente, the last one is a masterpiece! I love horses, and used to go on horse trekking holidays often, I can imagine Norway has wonderful areas for such activities … but horses on the free run are magnificent, you really were lucky to “catch” them by camera ;-))

  4. I love to watch horses run, full of joy. It’s a wonderful sight. They are beautiful animals – so graceful. When I’ve been volunteering, I enjoy brushing them and combing their manes. They seem to appreciate that.

  5. They seem like they are reveling in those few moments of freedom! Glorious shots Bente! Love the lines and textures in the first shot.

  6. Wonderful horses, they seem happy. They look like our Frysian horses overhere, except for the white spot on their foreheads……….

  7. Hester var min store lidenskap i mange år. Jeg vet hvorfor, når jeg ser bilder som dette. Sterke, vakre dyr… En fin opplevelse du fikk, selv om hestene var på rømmen 🙂

  8. Our horse has escaped a few times. I think he loves to gallop around an unfamiliar place. But once the novelty wears off (which doesn’t take long) he wants the comfort and security of his pasture.
    Beautiful photos.
