Grazing among the buttercups

Usually I’d be thinking about taking some photos of the Red Poll cattle at Hatfield Forest, grazing among the buttercups, at this time of year. They always return at the beginning of May and I’ve heard from one of my colleagues that the first members of the herd arrived yesterday. Sadly, I can’t go and see them at the moment as that would be a non-essential journey and the Forest is closed anyway. However, I was still able to take a buttercup portrait during my walk today as I encountered this miniature pony foraging in its field. The last time I walked past it was raining, the buttercups had yet to bloom, and the pony was nowhere to be seen. On this morning’s evidence, we seem to be into a different season entirely!

OMG, how much hair does that pony have, around here they are much more bare. Greetings and take care.

Great shot!  Is this a pony in waiting?  Can we watch this space?
