Happy New Year!

Nice feet on that pony. What do their horses run, about 14 hands or so?
And just a cool photo!

12- 14. And if you call one a "pony" both Mongol and Kazakh will correct you: "HORSE!"

We have lots of our own horse photos-- this one was sent to us, though we know the area.

That is a thing of profound beauty!

Caught an episode of Human Planet on Saturday, featuring a 16-year-old Kazakh making his first hunt with an eagle he had captured and trained. They had a camera mounted on the eagle. OH, MAN! I want to see an entire movie on this type of hunting in IMAX.

Happy New Year to you.

:) An interesting entymological study could be written around when a horse is or isn't a pony...having encountered any number of 16 hand ponies and 12 hand horses I sometimes think equus might be safer.

You too! That picture is about as perfect as it could be.
