Camera Critters 6

I took this photo in Ireland a few weeks ago. It was an okay day weather wise and we actually had the sun come out when we were at Muckross House on the Ring of Kerry. These horses were waiting for their next job, taking people to a small waterfall. You could also take the jaunting car (as they are called) to the nearby town of Killarney. The horses look okay albeit a bit bored, but I do think they are well looked after. They hardly ever do two runs back to back, there's always a rest in between.

For more critters from around the world, please visit Camera Critters and join in the fun!


  1. Many years ago when I visited Ireland, I saw horses pulling little caravans. I was told the tourists (Germen) rented this carriage, lived in it and toured around the countryside. I wonder do they still do that? Thanks for sharing your image with us.

  2. Oh, dat zijn echt van die 'boerenknollen', zoals wij ze hier noemen !

  3. Bedankt voor je bezoekje :)
