It was a wild day as we say in Ireland. Stormy with heavy showers. These
horses look wild too as they galloped towards me, but in reality they were
quite friendly and just wanted some company.
It was a day for staying indoors. A day for reading, for drinking coffee before
venturing out for a few pics and some shopping.

I like all in this photo, the general feeling of wildness, which is echoed in the posture of horses and in the tree bending under the wind.
The picture is not gloomy at all, in spite of the grey sky, it’s full of life and quite beautiful!

A painted Shire seems very unusual. What a lovely capture.

They are heaving fun for sure. Very nice catch.

A great, atmospheric shot, at first I just thought it was the trees in the wind, until I scrolled down and saw the beautiful horses. You really captured the mome with this. Voted.

Great pastoral scene, are these Gypsy horses? Looks like they are having Arab envies them for getting to be on grass. (No grass year round in my area...and no irrigated pastures in my to drive an hour)

Big gentle giants...they'd probably do anything for a carrot or sugarcube :o) Lovely wild capture Mairead

Very sociable creatures, a great rapport can be gained with a carrot or mint.

Beautiful wildness here. Love the dark sky, although I am glad I live in sunny Texas. Very lovely shot, Mairead!!!

The tree leaning slightly to the right makes it look very windy. It was brave of you to venture out!
laine25-Oct-2009 10:20
They aren't bothered by the the mane on the white one.
Phillip Normanton25-Oct-2009 09:27
That one on the left needs to get a haircut! They're not racehorses, are they! :o)

Nice to see these big horses still around. The weather must have been inspiring them. Well done.
Nora van Beek24-Oct-2009 22:00
They don't seem to mind the weather at all. I love the playful mood here. Great capture! ~V~
Valene24-Oct-2009 21:43
Great mood photo with the stormy day and frisky horses. They look quite different than
