Serenade for Iceland's Horses

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen for this post is a 2 minute one entitled "Flutasia - Serenade for Iceland's Horses".  I found it so beautiful...both the music and the horses!  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took on one of my many walks.  As far as the Greylag goose goes, she chose to walk up to me...within just a few feet away, enabling me to take these photos.  I felt honoured.  :) You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

  9. I enjoyed the video but did not hear any music...I thought your new friend was a statue at first also. Ducks are smart and she probably remembers you and wants to have more pictures taken. :)

  11. Brilliant post Linda, loved the photos and the quotes. Thanks for stopping by. The heat is very dry here, I need a lot of chapstick as my lips dry out faster than anything. I prefer a dry heat to the humidity we get at home but oh my, it is still so hot :)

  23. Dearest Linda,
    Too bad that the video didn't show up as you meant to... Here is the correct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoPurMKFaD0
    That was truly incredible how those horses responded.
    Your goose is also incredible and it made for great photos.
    Thanks for sharing.
