Living in a rural area of dairy cows, we have to travel a bit to find horses 
in the paddocks instead of cows.
In conversations with Hubby, who knows lots about New Zealand, I learned
 that New Zealand exports race horses, mainly to Australia.

This sculpture is in  Levin.

They are beautiful animals. And all those green pastures, sigh. I love to see green grass

What a lovely area. I have always admired horses. They are so beautiful and still a little wild at heart.

While I'll always love horses since I had them as a kid, that sculpture is AMAZING!!!

Some wonderful photos Betty, the mare and her foal are gorgeous. You must travel extensively from the range of your photos :)
Stay safe

Beautiful and interesting pictures! Since over here is winter with snow, I enjoy to see all those green colors.

You have a beautiful website and I also took a look also at your others. Cows are plentiful here too in our area but also horse riding stables. I also liked that picture in Levin very much. And also the other photography with foal caught my attention.
