The Telegraph have a weekly series of animal pictures, worth seeing every week.
My favorite this week is The Shire with the Shetland pony.
I had a similar horse once, up north, in Burns Lake, named “Rufus”, I rode him bareback a few times in the winter with deep snow, before he was 2 years old. Of 12 horses, Rufus was the only one that died, when Strangles hit the flock, when a new horse came home.
I was devastated, and spent the one Easter burying him by hand in the frozen ground. I could never understand why Rufus should die, the youngest, biggest and strongest of them all, but life and death is so hard to understand, and so unjust.
The Kingfisher on the camera, and they are all good.
Look up The Telegraph every week.
