Ponies grazing at Latchmore Shade, New Forest
This view is looking upstream at the Latchmoor Brook, with Hampton Ridge in the far distance. The name "shade" does not refer to a shady area (there are few trees on this wet heathland anyway), but instead it refers to something the ponies do: when they "shade" they stand out the heat of the day away from the undergrowth where insects are more of a nuisance. On a mild spring day such as this the ponies (and some cattle) are more likely to be grazing on the lawn rather than standing - food supplies are low and they have used up their fat reserves accumulated last year.
