North San Luis Obispo County is Horse CountryThe North County is wine country, but it's also horse country. There are commercial horse farms, and then there are residents who have horses along with donkeys, mules, sheep, and goats. This is a miniature horse who lives in Templeton, south of Vineyard Drive, off Santa Rita Road. It lives with larger horses next to a rural home.
A Miniature Horse is Not a Pony
When I first saw this horse I thought it might be a pony, but later I met the owner, who set me straight. You can see how small this miniature horse is when one of the other horses is near. This isn't a very clear shot since the horses were at the back of the lot and I had to use my zoom.
I took a couple of other shots of the miniature horse to give you yet a different perspective.
This photo was taken looking straight at the front of the horse.
This shot was taken as I looked over the top of the fence.
