A vacation that's well deserved. Although the island horses are very well cared for during the tourist season, they deserve this time of just being a horse without a cart attached......

Where did the time go? Again a blink, and another season is gone!

It's sad to see them leave every year even though they certainly deserve their winter rest...

All the horses are so beautiful!!! Love going to the Island!!

They deserve their much needed rest.

Rest well. Hope to see you next year!!

Snow birds

Cute!, pretty horses

I need to go there again soon πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
