A few pictures from the pony swim Chincoteague today. It stormed like crazy as the ponies were set to swim at slack tide (the moments between high and low tide), but a little business from Mother Nature did not hold back the Salt Water Cowboys from driving the ponies on...
|Before the storm, a Saltwater Cowboy rides his horse, a mare named Lady, through the marsh for a cold drink.|
|The cowboy's horses from the other side arrive on Chincoteague via party boat.|
|This was right before I put my camera away -- we got drenched - ponies and people.|
|An hour later, parading down Main Street to the carnival grounds. Now the sun decides to come back out!|
|Tight quarters for two stallions leads to ... disagreements.|
|Where are we Mama??|
|The kick zone...|
