A good suggestion, but remember to learn how to kick your back legs towards them before they try to put a saddle on you.

Beautiful pic Dennis !

I love the blossom laden tree in this perfect scene. If the black and white horses had an off spring between them I wonder what colour it would be…or shouldn’t that be said these days?
(tongue in cheek ).

Very picturesque Dennis, well captured.

The only time I would like to come back after life after death is back to the 50s and 60s. Everything was slower, calm and friendly.
Look round today most people got their face in the phone, you don't see people talking on the bus or train anymore, so for me people are in another world.

I'd like to come back without wars, mobile phones, cost of living prices, fuel prices gas and electricity prices, NHS doctors and nurses in turmoil, railways none existence......you get my jest.

Masses of hawthorn blossoms everywhere this year. Beautiful, peaceful scene on a summer's day.
Thanks Dennis.

My eyes are drawn to the bodged up fence, made with different shaped wood, barbed wire and a bit with ordinary wire.
You wouldn't get fences like that down in Oxfordshire

A wonderful scenic photo Dennis, hope this scene only ever changes during the different seasons of the year.

What an outstanding example of a 'Rustic Fence' and marvellous for keeping livestock in the fields and those excluded folks out, and looks to be electrified so anyone striding over and trying to carry a bike above it would have their nether regions fried.

Mick always reminds me of an affliction I suffered with as a child. A “grumbling appendage” I think the doctor called it… or was it appendix? Either way ,it always reminds me of Mick.

Aye DTease, you know how dogs can come up to you all happy and wagging their tails, then give you a nice welcome lick, with Mick they give a snarl, a growl then a bite and try to worry his trouser leg as he's riding off.

Irene hasn't posted for a couple of days so possibly her arthritis playing up again, if so I hope it soon settles and relieves the pain Irene.

That's a beauty Dennis!

Comment by: Pat McC on 8th June 2023 at 18:57

You might not find fences like this in Oxfordshire Mick, but in the Pembrokeshire National Park, where I live, there are hundreds of them and they contribute to the rural beauty.

Such a peaceful pic. Dennis - 'in England's green and pleasant land'
