Assateague’s Wild Trio
Assateague’s Wild Trio- is my portrayal of some Assateague ponies galloping on their Island’s shore. Annette (a good friend of mine) and I loaded up her Suburban with three of her girls, five of mine and a few other precious strays for a mother and daughter camping adventure at the northern end of Assateague Island. Along with making delightful memories I was thrilled to get some pictures of the beautiful sights we saw during our long walks on the beach, hikes through the dunes, and relaxing by the ocean. We had a couple mares hang out with us one afternoon, after leaving us a few “gifts” and taking a taste of one of the girl’s books, they ventured on to entertain another party. Kristen (Annette’s oldest daughter and budding photographer) snapped the photo that I used for Assateague’s Wild Trio. This was the first in a series of shots. One or two pictures later the horse in the rear charged in for a bite on the hind hip of the horse on the right. It isn’t a rare occasion to be startled by a thunder of hooves during a rest on the beach. What a majestic sight it is to see a herd of galloping horses against the roar of the mighty ocean, it all breaths such freedom and pleasure into the souls of those in sight.
