Wild horses in North-Groningen
Lens: DA55-300mm PLM Camera: KP Photo Location: Ennemaborg, Midwolda, NL

These semi-wild Polish Konik horses roam freely within this particular forest. Their task is to keep the undergrowth at bay. They stay out night and day, summer and winter. Luckily they are friendly and do not scare easily but still the recommendation is to not come to close particularly if there are young stallions around. Here's the group I walked into earlier today.

All shots in raw (PEF) on the Pentax KP with the DA55-300 PLM lens. Raws were converted in batch with Darktable. Due to the somber wintery day, ISO ran pretty high so I did do some PP noise reduction with NeatImage. Besides that, no other processing other than scripted thumbnailing with an ImageMagick script.

Great series of images Mike. These are very interesting horses that look built to handle the winters there.

Agree, great series of images. Not only are they free to roam the forest, they are performing a useful function for all in controlling undergrowth. It's nice to see these images from different parts of the world.
