I meant to share another photo but this one jumped onto the screen, so its obviously time....I've been thinking a lot recently about living lightly on the land. Living lightly generally and how that can happen, even more so at this extravagant time of year. I've felt very clearly to take no more than I need, to share. There's no doubt that in my own life it's happening more and more, even when I haven't wanted to! As I spend time around these wilder creatures and herding animals I watch their simplicity and rhythms. There are so many to see, so many species. So much to learn, gain and share. These two walking this way reminded me of the way that elephants walk in lines with their young in tow. One foot in front of the other, again and again. Step by step.... this is their rhythm for now. . . . . . #all_animal_addiction #animalsaregodsart #allthingsofbeauty_ #animalmessenger #animalportrait #fineartphotography #beautifulhorses #horselover #horsesofinstagram #horsespirit #lovehorses #equine #equinephotography #equinephotographer #love #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #keepwildhorseswild #kings_animals_love #dreamland_arts_of_nature #pocket_horses #pferd #pferdefotografie #wildhorsephotography #getoutside #natureaddict #kings_animals_love #dreamy at Dartmoor National Park

I have to share the delight of this bird.... I was watching her playing around in the snow. Already giggling because I thought the golden grasses made the peaks look like browned meringues - she made that smile wider. I couldn't see what was going on until I got home and looked closely at the images. This wonderful bird knew the riches underneath the soil and spent such time digging over that snow with her precise beak. She'd grabbed something I still can't make out! Her depth of colour against the snow wowed me. Something about the black, white and gold seeming regal and more than a little splendid. . . . . . #loveanimals #corvus #bird #birdlover #birding #birdlanguage #heart_imprint #crow #dreamland_arts_of_nature #allthingsofbeauty_ #winter #wilderness_addicts #shotwithlove #nofilter #naturesmedicine #natureismychurch #natureconnection #birdsofinstagram #gooutside #getoutside #joyful_pics #joy #uplifting #healing #healingnature #dartmoor #everything_animals

Sometimes, or often, we begin journeys with no idea where they're going to take us. We have a flash of inspiration, a crazy thought and something that calls us to follow. Something inside just won't let us put it down. It's the thing that brings us through hardships, the passion that stretches previous limits. It isn't always easy to explain how these things happen or when they begin. My journey has lead me to these wild beauties and celebrating our Earth. I never imagined what would unfold but I'm incredibly glad it is. Immense gratitude for this year and the roller coaster of the new, for new found friends and all this celebration of the beauty and spirit in our world.

Ah..... and breathe. Sometimes when all around us seems like madness it's easy to forget the gentler rhythms that are always present. They may seem far away from our daily routines and rituals but they are there nonetheless. The Earth's heart beats steadily, and the wheel of the seasons keeps turning, changing. No matter how distant that rhythm may seem, it is still ever present. Basking in the winter light and taking a well needed break from new experiences, are these two. The moors are tough in the winter and much rest is needed. No matter how much running around the little colt Gemini does, he has to surrender to rest nonetheless. Bluebell takes it all in her stride, she is as wise as ever. . . . . . #all_animal_addiction #animalsaregodsart #allthingsofbeauty_ #animalmessenger #horselover #animalportrait #horsesofinstagram #lovehorses #horselover #equine #equinephotography #pferd #pferdefotografie #wildhorsephotography #wilderness_addicts #wildhorsepc #inlovewithequines #kings_animals_love #keepwildhorseswild #natureaddict #pocket_horses #everything_animals #fiftyshades_of_nature #heart_imprint #love #dartmoorcollective #spirit #horsespirit #dreamland_arts_of_nature at Dartmoor National Park

I'll never tire of snow. The effect on the landscape, the sound, the purity and their incredible crunch underfoot. It's like golden tipped meringues! To see these beauties out amongst it is beyond magical. As they scrape their feet to get to the food beneath, there is something so deeply majestic about the way they hold their bodies. Luckily the snow is shallow and it won't stay cold out here for long. the winters are tough on the moor but nonetheless, snow.... what beauty to behold for however long she visits. This mare looked even more special yesterday.... . . . #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #wilderness_addicts #shotwithlove #wildponies #getoutsi #horsespirit #horsesofinstagram #pocket_horses #all_animal_addiction #everything_animals #freedom #keepwildhorseswild #animalportrait #dreamland_arts_of_nature #shots_of_animals #snow #horselover #equinephotography #equine #pferd #pferdefotografie #atmospheric #lovenature #animal_members #horseoftheday #devonnetwork #dartmoorpony at Dartmoor National Park

You know that itch you just can't get to? The one you've wanted to scratch for ages but somehow you never do? How about you go scratch it.... We have lots of itches - physical itches, metaphorical itches, creative itches, travel itches. Seems there are many that may need attention. And when we do finally get to them, imagine the deep down satisfaction. We may look silly at first, we may even look at little bit crazy. But imagine the feeling. Take inspiration from this spotted foal who proudly walked up right in front of me, began to scratch in a way that these wild ones do. He looked straight at me, and carried on. And the warmest smile filled my being. My itch yesterday was to see the ponies in the snow..... . . . . #all_animal_addiction #dreamland_arts_of_nature #allthingsofbeauty_ #animalmessenger #animalportrait #beautifulhorses #uplifting #natureaddict #nofilter #inlovewithequines #equinephotography #wildhorsephotography #wildhorsepc #wildponies #kings_animals_love #everything_animals #shotwithlove #pferd #pferdefotografie #pocket_horses #freedom #keepwildhorseswild #horsesofinstagram #devonnetwork #horse #heart_imprint #horseoftheday at Dartmoor National Park

I've become increasingly fascinated by horses grooming each other. I love the sound of it, the peacefulness and the ritual. I watched these mares recently as they took some time in the evening light - another joined, one left.... They all seemed to get what they needed although I felt that the one that moved on was a little disgruntled. It's hard not to want some of what others have when you see folk enjoying themselves, but sometimes it's just as important to stay back a while until it's your time. They seemed to work it out but it did make me smile a knowing smile. We've all experienced this in our own way. These are two mares in Bluebell's herd, absolute guardians of the moor. . . . . #all_animal_addiction #heart_imprint #heartconnection #wildhorsepc #wilderness_addicts #wildhorses #wildhorsephotos #wildponies #pferd #pferdefotografie #everything_animals #equinephotography #horsesofinstagram #horsespirit #horsephotography #equine #pocket_horses #marvelouz_animals #kings_animals_love #keepwildhorseswild #heartopeners #freespirit #atmospheric #happyheart #beautifulhorses #love #shotwithlove

You know when I said I thought this little colt 'Gemini' was probably going to be alright? I think it's because I saw these early shenanigans of his with Bluebell. He appears to be part goat as well as looking like a sheep from the back, and already using his mother as a climbing frame. He does choose the strangest places to relax. But who can blame him? He's exploring it all, brand new to the world, everything is an adventure. Oh to keep that spirit alive throughout our lives! It is a great challenge to remember our childlike wonder and awe in the world, our enthusiasm for the new or not so new! I'm hoping that all this fire in his belly is helping Gemini to stay warm in this cold snap here. And I'm sure the herd are huddling in tight..... . . . . #all_animal_addiction #allthingsofbeauty_ #animalportrait #foal #colt #pferd #pferdefotografie #horsephotography #wildhorsephotos #heart_imprint #everything_animals #pocket_horses #wildhorsepc #wilderness_addicts #equinephotography #wildhorsephotography #joyful_pics #lovehorses #horselover #horsesofinstagram #keepwildhorseswild #shots_of_animals #shotwithlove #kings_animals_love #keepwildhorseswild #freespirit #horsespirit

Of all his herd, this is the young colt who wanted to interact the most. And interact he did! Once he finally decided he was going to brave approaching, that was that. He just couldn't get close enough! And then he was following me again and again, eventually sniffing my face and nibbling my hat. Is this becoming a habit? The nibbling ponies? Thing is, once he started then the others got more confident, and then for the first time a very beautiful and shaggy stallion stepped forward. I'll share him another time. This fellow just made me giggle. It was hard photographing him because he was so close it was almost impossible. I'll never complain when they let me cuddle them..... . . . . #all_animal_addiction #heart_imprint #colt #natureaddict #natureconnection #horsesofinstagram #fiftyshades_of_nature #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #inlovewithequines #equinephotography #everything_animals #kings_animals_love #shotwithlove #spirit #horsespirit #allthingsofbeauty_ #pferdefotografie #pferd #photooftheday #wildhorsephotos #shotwithlove #pocket_horses #marvelouz_animals #the_mirror_of_our_souls at Dartmoor National Park

My primary motivation for all that I do is love. So when a dear friend said yesterday that she felt so much romance in these photographs, I was very touched. Truth is, she's really described what I feel with her words. I'm in love with these ponies, this land, our Earth. And as with all love, there is always the fear of loss and actual loss. It's inevitable. Perhaps my fear of the loss of what is most dear to me motivates me further. Partly that is so true. But each time I'm out with these beauties and they share even more with me, allowing me into their world, I know that it is love that draws me to return again and again. I shed many tears with them too, all kinds of tears. Primarily though, they are of joy, wonder and a total surrender to the moment as magic unfolds. They teach me absolutely how to be in the present. . . . . #all_animal_addiction #allthingsofbeauty_ #horselover #horsespirit #horsesofinstagram #inlovewithequines #horseoftheday #wildhorsepc #wilderness_addicts #wildhorses #shotwithlove #everything_animals #marvelouz_animals #beautifulhorses #bestofequines #pocket_horses #keepwildhorseswild #kings_animals_love #pferd #pferdefotografie #equinephotography #heartopeners #animalportrait #dartmoornationalpark #gooutside #natureaddict #heartconnection #bliss #love #joyful_pics

The boy is creating a bit of a storm.... and just incase you're missing him at all, I thought I'd share him more fully today. I'm affectionately calling him Gemini as I discovered him on the Full Moon in Gemini on Sunday. He's full of spark, he's perky, he looks partly like a sheep and behaves a lot like a goat, he's clearly got his mother's quirky ways too....It's going to be a lot of fun finding them again soon. For now I just hope that Gemini, Bluebell and their herd stay strong for the winter months and make it through to spring. With the love and joy that surrounds them there is a very good chance. . . . . . #all_animal_addiction #allthingsofbeauty_ #animalportrait #animalphotography #everything_animals #equinephotography #equine #wilderness_addicts #wildhorses #wildhorsephotos #wildponies #pferd #pferdefotografie #colt #foal #beautyeverywhere #beautifulhorses # #heart_imprint #kings_animals_love #keepwildhorseswild #loveanimals #heartconnection #horsespirit #wild #love #joyful_pics #joy at Dartmoor National Park

There are days when our energies are lower than others. When I watch the horses yawning it just makes me smile - you have to marvel at that jaw. They do it with such great gusto! They do it in such a way that it seems to shift all that tired energy fantastically well. Often the yawn is followed by a full body roll and then a good old shake right from head to tail and then they get up and resume the day. These days when I'm around them if they yawn, I have a good yawn too. It's amazing how much better that can make you feel let alone the body-shake. I won't suggest you do that at work today but maybe...... . . . . #dreamland_arts_of_nature #all_animal_addiction #allthingsofbeauty_ #animalmessenger #animalportrait #beautifulhorses #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #wilderness_addicts #wildhorsephotos #wildponies #pferd #pferdefotografie #horsesofinstagram #equinephotography #inlovewithequines #marvelouz_animals #pocket_horses #everything_animals #kings_animals_love #keepwildhorseswild #shots_of_animals #shotwithlove #fiftyshades_of_nature #horselover #fineartphotography #horsephotography at Dartmoor National Park

It is with immense delight that I share with you the amazing news of Bluebell. For those of you who have fallen for her eccentric ways and incredible eyes, you will no doubt feel as excited as I am to know that she has a tiny, very young foal - a colt. On my journey yesterday onto the moors I was amazed to find her.....let alone her child nestled amongst the herd and a gorse thicket. It's the biggest surprise and he is such a wonderful personality already. The joy of life never ceases to amaze me. Amongst the recent losses here, this young one brings hope to my heart and the feeling of abundant times ahead. Go well young beauty! May your family protect and guide you. ___________________________________ Read my blog for the story here.... https://earthador.wordpress.com/2017/12/04/where-to-find-bluebell/ . . . . #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #wilderness_addicts #shotwithlove #sharethelove #horselover #heartconnection #bliss #gooutside #pferd #pferdefotografie #wildhorsephotography #beautifulhorses #bestofequines #inlovewithequines #horsesofinstagram #fiftyshades_of_nature #all_animal_addiction #everything_animals #kings_animals_love #equinephotography #animalportrait #colt #foal #joyful_pics #joy #heartfulloflove at Dartmoor National Park

Today I will find my way again to these beauties, and I don't know who I'll find but that is part of what makes all of this, more than wonderful. Maybe they will appear, maybe they won't. After three long weeks of not being able to get out to them, my sense of joy is immense. There is nothing like not being able to do what you love most for a little while to make me see things even more clearly. To be unable to reach the wilderness and friends of all species leaves me feeling.....empty, restless, disconnected - yet still there is much to be learnt from that alone! Once your wild heart has started beating, there really is, no going back. It will keep on calling again and again.... . . . . . #horse #horsespirit #heart_imprint #kings_animals_love #all_animal_addiction #allthingsofbeauty_ #inlovewithequines #bestofequines #horseoftheday #equine #equinephotography #keepwildhorseswild #fineartphotography #heartopeners #gooutside #natureaddict #pferd #pferdefotografie #wildhorsephotography #wilderness_addicts #wildhorsepc #wildhorsephotos #beautifulhorses #nofilter #animalportrait #shotwithlove #spirit #wildlandscapes #photooftheday at Dartmoor National Park

I've been waiting for the moment to share this one. His beauty, trust and curiosity remains etched in my mind. It was the first really cold day here a few weeks ago and the first time I'd met him but the bond was instant. There's something so incredible about the winter light, it changes everything. The brightness of it is entirely different to the other seasons. In winter there is a whole other level of survival and instincts, I listen in a different way at this time of year, you have to be sharp to any quick changes. But this fellow.....he set this image up. He stood with the sun behind him and waited so very patiently. He created this magic so that I may share it with - you. . . . . . . #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #wilderness_addicts #shotwithlove #wildponies #spirit #inlovewithequines #horselover #horsesofinstagram #allthingsofbeauty_ #kings_animals_love #keepwildhorseswild #all_animal_addiction #animalportrait #animalmessenger #pocket_horses #heart_imprint #horse #fiftyshades_of_nature #winter #dartmoorcollective #freedom #pferd #pferdefotografie #colt #foal #love #joyful_pics at Dartmoor National Park

Oh my word..... this calf absolutely stole my heart! I've never seen one quite like this before. Just the most beautiful soul with his mother, the incredibly thick yet soft coat. She sized me up properly as they emerged from the rusty bracken, walking quietly along. You almost can't hear them when they do this but i could feel her mighty presence. The others were asleep on the road in a deeply relaxed state which made me smile even more widely. Oh to be that relaxed with all that is around us, the gift of sleep no matter where. That is enviable. ______________________________________________ . . . . . #love #loveanimals #lovecows #cows #highlandcow #highlandcattle #calf #heart_imprint #allthingsofbeauty_ #all_animal_addiction #marvelouz_animals #animalportrait #shotwithlove #getoutside #feelthelove #natureaddict #kings_animals_love #everything_animals #lifeisbeautiful #joyful_pics #uplifting #magiceverywhere #heartconnection #healing #spirit #animalmessenger #heartopeners #livewildbefree #walkinnature at Dartmoor National Park

You'll know by now that I have a bit of thing for this stallion. I can hardly tell you how it is to be in his presence - each time it is different. He is soulful, powerful, wise, trusting, protective, instinctive and more. He represents for me, the balance in all things.I've watched him sleep just a metre away.....I've seen his vulnerability after his herd was diminished a few weeks ago, his absolute tiredness. I've felt his despair also at not being able to change a thing about that. What he feels, I feel. This is how it is to build relationships with these wild ones. It is to open your heart to a million things, sometimes you feel utterly broken. Other times - fuller than you ever imagined possible. If that's balance, I'm made. . . . . . #all_animal_addiction #allthingsofbeauty_ #wilderness_addicts #shotwithlove #wildponies #spirit #everything_animals #wildhorsephotos #wildhorsepc #keepwildhorseswild #kings_animals_love #marvelouz_animals #heart_imprint #lovehorses #equinephotography #pferdefotografie #pferd #photooftheday #horsesofinstagram #beautifulhorses #wildhorses #natureaddict #freespirit #bestofequines #horseoftheday #stallion #staywild at Dartmoor National Park

This is the most exquisite mare. I met her several times over the summer. She totally threw me with her beauty the first time as she stood with a stallion in the long burnt out grasses. I saw her again right against a granite tor and I could hardly see her as she camouflaged herself. She has a serene power, and ability to become one with her environment in a way that is unique. Her coat disguises her amongst these muted tones that I've come to love and yearn for if I spend too long away. She teaches me the art of disguising - when needs be. There is a way to make ourselves so still, so as we can merge almost totally with our surroundings. I learn that from her and from many others. ______________________________________________ . . . . #all_animal_addiction #allthingsofbeauty_ #animalmessenger #animalportrait #beautifulhorses #wildhorses #horsesofinstagram #equine #equinephotography #horselover #everything_animals #wildhorsephotos #wildhorsepc #wilderness_addicts #fineartphotography #pferd #pferdefotografie #shotwithlove #dreamland_arts_of_nature #shots_of_animals #fiftyshades_of_nature #pocket_horses #the_mirror_of_our_souls #heart_imprint #instahorse #kings_animals_love #keepwildhorseswild #freespirit #bestofequines #horseoftheday at Dartmoor National Park
