This photo was taken in Bourtange a dutch old fortresses. This fortress has a vivid history of being used, abandoned and being used again. Right now it is a museum that tells the tales of the fortress.
Fort Bourtange was initially built during the Eighty Years' War (circa 1568–1648) when William I of Orange wanted to control the only road between Germany and the city of Groningen which was controlled by the Spanish. This road followed a sandy ridge (tange) through the marshes (the Bourtange Swamp).
Thank you to @athenamellor and @harvey123go for the photo, putting the PACMAT through its paces. .
There’s a review up here https://wildandwords.com/blogpost/wild-things-september-2018?rq=Pacmat .
For the past month, one our projects has been to wean, halter, and get these 7 little foals to trust us completely. I’m not gonna lie- it’s a lot of work! They are damn cute; but it takes consistency, compassion, and patience.
Working with horses is amazing. They reciprocate your actions and emotions. They demand trust and give back only what’s been given to them.
I guess I could insert a deep metaphor now or just express how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work alongside such beautiful creatures 💙🙏🏽🐎🐴 #coolkid#nelly#stormy#petra#feugo#buttercup#Jett
