24 August 2004 - Wild Horses

The campsite in Soldeu offered a fantastic opportunity to don our hiking books and pack and head deep into the Pyrenees. 
During our 12km hike through the mountains we came across a herd of wild horses. Here are a few photo highlights...

The horses are wild but during the year they are rounded up, giving the local farmers the opportunity to hang bells around the necks of the horses. We think that the bells are a requirement during the winter season so that walkers, skiers and drivers know that wildlife is in the area.  The cows jingle bells as well...

An interesting view... Sam being brave!
