Photographer's Note

Dartmoor ponies.

When Dartmoor was designated a National Park, the pony was chosen to be its logo.
Ponies help to give Dartmoor its unique character and are one of the attractions for visitors to the area.
They are an integral part of the moorland landscape.

Ponies are also important for conservation, grazing particularly on certain habitats such as wet permanent pasture.

Not all ponies on Dartmoor look the same. Importing other breeds has created various colours and shapes of the animal.

The ponies on Dartmoor are not truly wild animals. They are all owned by farmers, who let them out on to the moors to graze for most of the year.

This pond is a permanent feature on the moor, so a convenient watering place for the animals.

Two more shots in the w/s.

Thanks for looking.
