How lovely Tony! I remember learning the migrations in class and discussing their routes. The picture is wonderful.
I love to watch wildlife shows. I buy them whenever I can. David Attenborough - Life On Earth series is great.
Anyone else watching any? I think I'll make a discussion on them.

Tony that horse is so beautiful - a black beauty. The horse has a really nice shiny black coat - reminds me of Black Beauty. I liked that movie.
Thanks so much all of you.

I love the video you posted Patricia! I've watched it several times now!

Tony, an incredibly beautiful horse. I wonder how they were so lucky to get white mane and tail? When I first saw the horse photo, I thought it looked familiar and according to Friesian History they were used by knights wearing full armor during the Middle Ages. A strong horse capable of carrying heavy loads and nimble.

A Friesen. Beautiful horse.
