GOOD FENCES - Toy Boy, Cowboy and Lola at Blessingbourne House, Co. Tyrone, N.Ireland

Toy Boy belongs to Colleen the owner of Blessingbourne House and although she is very busy  running the estate with all it's activities with her husband Nick, she finds time to ride Toy Boy as often as possible.  He is 9 years old and a beautiful horse with a large appetite.   The other two greys are Cowboy and Lola and were friendly and loving.  Daniel especially loved them.  Sorry about the quality of these shots but unbeknown to me Daniel had changed so many settings on my camera and I could not get it right for a while.

  1. Always good to see a horse or two. I hope you destroyed the ragwort in the last picture. It will be very poorly if it eats it.

  2. Beautiful things. Is it just me, or do those ears look like horns in the final shot?

  16. For an "ignoramus" like me...I think all of your pictures are wonderful. I can see nothing out of whack with them. Seeing the kids with the horse is so sweet. I cannot ever get the setting correct on my Canon when I take it off of auto. genie
