Back to Dyfed Shires!

We hadn’t been able to visit Dyfed Shires since December last year, so we have been itching to go and visit for a while now. We were finally able to go and catch up with all the horses on Wednesday. It was so nice to see them all again, and the humans too! 🙂 I’ve…… Continue reading Back to Dyfed Shires!

Happy 18th Birthday

In 1998 I had my best Christmas present ever, my son. And then as I turned 29, I had my best Birthday present ever, and that was you, my beautiful daughter.

Gentle Giants

Yesterday my daughter and I went to Dyfed Shire Horse Farm again and had a lovely time. The Shire horses are so big but so gentle and sweet natured. Even with something so big it can be worth looking closer, and I enjoyed getting some photos of their beautiful eyes as well as stepping back…… Continue reading Gentle Giants

Big Jumps

When I’m not taking photos of small things like flowers and insects, I take photos of rather larger things… namely horses! My daughter loves to ride and I often find myself sitting in field in the rain taking photos at competitions. In this event I sat near this huge log jump and was happy to…… Continue reading Big Jumps
