Welsh Mountain Ponies – Black Mountains, Wales

Hay-on-Wye is on the northeast border of the Brecon Beacons national park here in Wales.  Though slightly confusingly, the Brecon Beacon mountains are further west, with the Black mountains being the range here in the east.   Welsh mountain ponies roam the wild grassy hillsides and mountains and can be quite friendly as they try to discover whether your clothing or camera is edible.  My camera lens was completely fogged by horse breath on numerous occasions as I was trying to photograph them.
