Seven Horses seen on a Seven Stars walk.

One more horse and they could have been the 'Magnificent Seven' .. I love the way the horse on the right is looking enquiringly as if to say " Who are you?" I like the colours but the grass looks too dry for them.

Veronica, I'm glad you posted first as I would have put exactly the same thing about the horse on the right...we seem to be telepathic at the moment! I think he's saying to Poet, "Now, young man, two metres please!" A lovely photo but I agree about the grass. However, they look contented.

That's right Mick. I've become so familiar with them that I've named them , Dawn Run, Nijinsky, Arkle, Shergar, Frankel , Brigadier Gerard and the nosey one Red Rum.
Veronica, Frankel's hiding a bit behind the Brigadier.

Yes Veronica, the horse on the right does look bright and friendly, so much so, that I'd be tempted to break the rules by giving it a handful of lush nearside grass.

Veronica, I probably won't be the first to tell you that there ARE seven, there are two, one behind the other 'next' to your ''Who are you'' horse.

There is 7 Veronica, are else second from the right got 8 legs

I should have counted the legs first, well my eyesight's not as it was! So they are the Magnficent Seven after all!
Agree Irene. xx
