The horse draw tram

Ludwig’s Monday Windows March 21

This tram is a reproduction of the trams that ran in 1894 at Victor Harbour, South Australia. This tram was built in 1986 and runs today regularly from 10:30am with the 4pm tram the last one. The Victor Harbour Tram operates from the mainland across the 630 metres long Causeway to Granite Island.

Here is the story of the horses that pull the tram. http://horsedrawntram.com.au/our-horses/

Paulas words made me think for a while. This morning the Female Satin Bowerbirds came into the garden looking for a bit of nectar from the Yamba Sunshine Grevillea which was fortuitous for reachable.

I couldn’t find anything straight away and then I remembered the horses who had a short disagreement. I don’t know what infuriated one of them

INFURIATED

Last week on a walk in the park prior to another lockdown at my besties area, I found a hat on a post and thought “that may come in handy” and here is a post behatted

One day in the country

The day was a pleasant drive in the countryside with my bestie and her friend. We went to a nearby town, Kyogle, went to the farmers market, bought a raffle ticket from the local Scout group (I didn’t win the produce which was the prize), went to the art gallery, roamed about town dropping into shops and chatting with the people, finally having lunch at a charming cottage restaurant watching the world go by.

On the way home I wanted to get some photos of the dairy cows that were in a paddock close to the road. Across the road were the calves, chickens and general farm animals scattered among the usual farm machinery and stuff that farms tend to accumulate.

On the hill were a couple of horses and this is what unfolded.

It looked like a pleasant greeting. I thought I would try to capture this tender scene between two horses in the same paddock. So sweet as the came together nose to nose.

And then with a flick of the head, a bit of artful maneuvering and the attempt at a playful nip or two.190923_blog_challenge_horse_fight2
There seemed to be an air of non-reciprocation and qualm 190923_blog_challenge_horse_fight3
The subtle moving about and quick motion, the rearing and dust being kicked up hinted that all was not friendly.190923_blog_challenge_horse_fight4
Suddenly a quick gallop around the paddock side by side which I thought was letting off steam so all would be well.190923_blog_challenge_horse_fight5

 

But no. They were back at it again in a sudden switch of mood to indicate that all was not well190923_blog_challenge_horse_fight6

I had had enough of this drama in the farm paddock and went back to the gentle dairy cows.
