Exercising the horses

 

Along the shore of Lough Swilly, at Rathumullan, Donegal. (It seems that Lough Swilly takes its name from the Celtic goddess Suili, known to the Romans as Sulis, after whom Aquae Sulis was named - the small Roman town now known as Bath.)

Well I'll be blessed, never knew that Tom!
Tom Wilson: One lives and learns smile I didn't know either until I found it on some tourist notice board smile
If you like riding then I can imagine that this is the ideal place for man and beast Tom.
Tom Wilson: Ideal I would think, Chad. I think these were horses from a nearby racing stable.
Donegal is one of my favourite places Tom, sadly partly ruined by 'brown envelope' developments.
Tom Wilson: The Fanad peninsula doesn't seem too badly affected in that way but there were signs of such development nearer to Letterkenny.
Excellent shot indeed Tom! I really like the perspective.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.
Love how the background hills go from green to blue in such a painterly way.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary.
What a great action moment with the horses
Tom Wilson: A case of being in the right place at the right time smile
Like a movie still... I've always wanted to see horses run along a beach. Over here there are signs of "no dogs allowed on beach" so I'd be surprised to see horses.
Tom Wilson: Earlier, one of them was being exercised in the water - presumably to strengthen its leg muscles. It was a great stretch of beach - a couple of milles long.
I guess the horses can get a good gallop going along this beach.
Tom Wilson: Indeed they can, Brian - it's a couple of miles long.
This is very nice, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank - much appreciated!
A really wonderful shot, Tom!!
