Wild Horses Again…Imagine That

Sunday was a perfectly beautiful fall day here in our area, so Motor Man and I, once again, headed to Carova.

And, once again, the wild horses provided us with some great shots. Let me explain how I took this first picture. As some of you know, there’s an ordinance requiring humans to stay at least 50 feet from the Corolla wild horses. Motor Man stopped our vehicle, I jumped out, used my zoom lens, snapped this picture and got right back in the vehicle.  When you see the video later in this post, you’ll see the importance of giving these horses their space.

I do believe we interrupted lunch time for this beauty.

But…. this….this just melted my heart.  We finally got to see the newest foal, a filly, born this season (late August).

Again, these photos were taken with my zoom lens.  I wouldn’t dare be that close.

And how many pictures did I take of this baby? I’m not tellin’.

But I promise that I won’t share them all in this post.

So, as you can tell, the horses were really making our day. And then we came upon this. You’ll want to have your volume on, and you should be able to watch in full screen.

 

I’m guessing these are two stallions? But I’m not sure.  And whether or not, the disagreement was as serious as it looked, I don’t really know. I’m just glad no humans were anywhere in the area. Because, obviously, for those few minutes, the horses weren’t paying much attention to their surroundings. (We were in our vehicle.)

And I found it so funny that the third horse really wanted in on the action. Watch at the 33 second mark, where it almost kicks up its hind feet….but not quite.  Then a few seconds later, a few kicks DO happen.

As I’ve said before, every visit to the beach is different. But not many are more action-filled than last Sunday’s trip.

  1. That is an amazing video. That 3rd horse just wanted in on the action! But not quite enough to jump in all the way! Thanks for sharing. Perfect way to start my day!

  2. Sweet little filly – does she have a name yet? Another successful bunch of beach/horse pix!

  3. A day full of action and beauty.

  4. Wow, plenty of action! I bet the third horse was the big brother just letting little brother fight his own battle, but letting him know he was there if he needed him. 😉 I found it interesting that the third horse often turned his back to the foray almost as if to say to his brother, “Don’t worry, I got your back!” And that little foal? So sweet.

  5. Such a great set of pics ! .. & that vid .. Wow .. But it looks like they sort of just got over it & went to get a beer or something 😂

    The filly was so pretty. What ever the fight was about it looked like they parted friends.

  7. Beautiful pictures. Love the little guy – Precious. And that looks like a pretty serious fight and one who wants to hint of things to come – maybe a future contender. You definitely capture just the best pictures and videos.
