Exmoor Pony

Another one from the archives. Taken on Exmoor over 6 years ago. Note the horse in the background!

The Exmoor pony is a rare native breed recognised by the Rare Breed Survival Trust and is listed in their Watchlist under Category 2, Endangered.

There are approximately 500 breeding mares and 100 licensed, registered stallions in any given period of 5 years producing between 100-150 foals per year.

Foals are bred into the free-living herds on Exmoor - the home of the Exmoor pony, and also in in-ground and free-living situations throughout the UK, Europe and North America.

You had a willing subject here Rosa. A beautiful pony captured in a great composition. I like graduated tones of the pony going from dark to lighter. Thanks for the interesting notes.

Have a good day, Doug
