horses

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.



















He knows when you are happy.
He knows when you are proud.
He knows also when you have a carrot!



Give a horse what he needs and he will give you his heart in return.


Feeling down?
Saddle up, it is the only cure..


You cannot train a horse with shouts and expect it to obey a whisper.
   Dagobert D. Runes


Horses lend us the wings we lack.


Over the years there have been so many horses that I have captured!
These are only a few!

  5. Αφιερώνω έναν ποιητικό καλπασμό που με γοητεύει:

    "
    Δεν καλπάζει ο στίχος,
    αν δεν τον Ιππεύσουν
    μάτια ατίθασα...."



    Φιλάκι.... καλπασμού ενέργεια..

  9. You have reminded me that I love horses. As a child I wanted to ride like the wind on my own horse. I never had one but it was wonderful to dream. Take care Monika.

  10. WOW!!!! My favorite animals, horses.... Monika these are absolutely fantastic and very exquisite pictures. And your words are so touching and so great. I read what you wrote and I thought how little I know about horses. They are beauties, all of them. And I am in love with the last beauty. She touched my heart. She looks a little bit sad.

    And I agree that saddle up a cure from being sad. I am sure that no hour of our life would be wasted when it's spent in the saddle.

    GREAT PICTURES, INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL AND VERY CREATIVE!!!!!

    EXCELLENT PHOTOGRAPHY!!!!

    I am sending you my love, a very loving and warm hug and kisses, my dear Monika.

  18. I feel about dogs the way you feel about horses. While you cannot ride a dog, you can take one most places you go.

    Your photography is excellent, Monika, and the dedication of your page is very touching.

  19. liebe Monika, jedes Foto, ja jedes Foto hat seine Schönheit...
    dir, ganz liebe Grüße Jasmin

    Das Pferd
    Wo in der Welt kann der Mensch Adel ohne Hochmut,
    Freundschaft ohne Eifersucht
    und Schönheit ohne Eitel finden?
    Hier, wo Anmut mit Muskelkraft einhergeht
    und Stärke von Sanftmut bezwungen wird,
    wo ohne Untertänigkeit gedient
    und ohne Feindschaft gekämpft wird.
    Nichts Mächtigeres,
    nichts Beherrschteres,
    nichts Schnelleres
    und nichts Geduldigeres ist zu finden.
    (Ronald Duncan 1954)

  22. Τίποτα δεν ακολουθεί την λογική, τα πάντα ακολουθούν απλά την πορεία τους.
    Μέσα σε αυτό το θέατρο οι αλήθειες είναι σχετικές και όλοι παίρνουν την κανονική τους θέση χωρίς επιλογή (λογική).
