About This Image
A mare and skewbald foal, who was not many days old.
I came across these ponies whilst driving across Dartmoor, in Devon.
Dartmoor is a National Park and the ponies lead a feral life, roaming wherever they please.
Because of the extreme weather conditions experienced on the moors, the Dartmoor is a particularly hardy breed with excellent stamina. Over the centuries it has been used as a working animal by local tin miners and quarry workers.
