Dartmoor Pony

IMG_1213

Stopped to take this photograph whilst driving across Dartmoor in Devon.

These ponies live in a semi-wild state on Dartmoor. They are a small and hardy breed able to withstand the harsh weather of the moorland. They have lived in this corner of southwest England for centuries and, in the past, been put to work in local mines and quarries.
