Dartmoor Pony Head and Mane Study

After a few recent colour shots...

Dartmoor Pony Head and Mane Study

I love the texture of the manes and the jaw-lines of these beautiful creatures. They roam free on Dartmoor and those that run true to the Dartmoor Pony form, like this one, are a direct link to our prehistoric past. They are ideally suited to a life on the unforgiving moors, making the most of the poor vegetation and able to withstand the cruel and harsh winters.

They're a great hit with visitors to the moors, being quite approachable and unfazed by close human proximity, as this shot shows.
